Epiphany of a Writer
As long as I’ve loved writing, I’ve always approached it as a hobby or friend; greeting it with positive gestures. In this approach I never fully thought that my thoughts could be scripted into something worth public substance, something worth the people’s time. When I think of writing that masses of people will read I think of a task forced style of writing; hour after hour writing on a topic you hold no interest in. Then I think of the world and the people who inhabit it and realize—how could my writing not hold something worth people’s time? I am the people. Splitting image in the ups and downs of life; a twin to the world in the decision making of love and the worry of decisions made. Only now does the quote make sense, “the greatest job is feeling as if you’re not working at all.” I couldn’t tell you who said it, but I can tell you it holds truth.
