At some point i stopped.I was suddenly caught up in all sorts of things that drew me away from my pen.A friend of mine of whom we used to write and perform poetry was still at it.I remember once she asked why i dint write poetry anymore and all i could say is ,” I don’t have motivation.”
Its true you know!Motivation in writing is the only thing that keeps many writers going.Literally,lack of it is also what make many of us stand on the edge.I woke up one day and sad to say but my creativity was fired by heart ache.It was the fuel to my mind.i felt deprived since i was in a really nice relationship that sad to say dint have any pit falls as such,funny huh!
So i had to make something out of my life experiences.I believe that the best writers are those that write about real life experiences.They make the reader delve from the pages into the scenes in the book.The ability to write and express feeling is a gift that many envy and is one of he best if not the best gift in the world.I know your wondering about those that don’t really like reading.Well that’s a story for another day.Considering not everyone will like it,thus its for the few that spend days on there computers and note book scribbling the little much they can,those that endure hours in the musical theater listening to classical music,those that attend jazz and poetry concerts wishing they could be part of the entertainment crew given a chance.
Eyes are the keys to the soul.Feed your mind through your eyes and sooner rather than later,life will peal like an onion.So before you abandon something you love doing,think and ask yourself how many people find strength in it.
Life is after all a river,many sink while others keep afloat,important thing being,holding on long enough and hoping to find your way to the bank.
