26 thoughts on “Seven Questions to Ask Yourself

  1. Should I write at all? That has been one of my questions to myself for a long time. When I was younger I received rejection letters with a promise or hope within them. I even had one publishing company tag with an author in CA for help. Now it seems like a three wing circus to get anyone’s attention. A few months ago I got an email from an agent who told me a raw ugly truth and that was, “if you are not well known it is next to impossible to get a children’s book published. It makes sense to me because I known it is all about money but it is very hard at 61 for me to think I have a chance now.

    • The question, “Should I write at all”? stood out to me. Writing had always been my passion, since high school. I was raised by a Narcissistic mother who would tell me I would never amount to anything and that I wasn’t good enough, etc… She’d also blurted out one day, that I would be be a writer because I couldn’t write good enough to write a book or to write anything that people may read. She’d kept on and on theft day attacking me verbally and emotionally acting like she was in shock that I would ever consider such a stupid thing as too be a writer. After that, I never pursued writing again until five months ago when I started this blog.
      I experienced freedom one I could put a name to her actions and Nasty ways of treating me. After I knew that, the lightbulb came on and it was a feeling I’ve yet to describe (but I will write about it soon… LoL πŸ˜€)…
      The passion I had way back in the day, for writing came in like a whirlwind and seemed doubled in the “drive” that I had… Pushing me add I never have to think about what I want to write only about what I freely begin to write Ace it flows naturally, so naturally it scared me but I still pushed through.

      I’ve come a long way so thank you for asking these questions so I could see exactly how far I’ve come from that place!

  2. Don’t allow your dream or passion to die, just because it a few rejection letters. Also that agent is WRONG!
    You can pursue Writing at any age. Don’t have that regret and remember life is to short so please pick your passion back up and go at it FULL FORCE!!!

  3. Should I write at all? I like that question too – Every time I write something I think, what’s the point? I’ve thought about stopping – writing isn’t going to get me anywhere. But it has turned into something that helps me with my days and keeps my mood up. So, if anything, I keep writing to ease my mind and give me focus. I guess I write for me πŸ™‚
