if you want to be a writer, go and get a day job — or start a business, or a hustle, so you can eat and maybe afford a roof over your head.
otherwise (and, in the meantime, unless you were born with bank) acquire a typewriter, any old laptop, or a pen and paper… and write.
write every day, and all the time. train your subconscious into a persistent creator mode. work the words, grammar and vocabulary — find your voice. professional musicians practice at least three hours daily. serious photographers take hundreds of photos, never mind the reviewing and editing, and then (if one aims to sell) upload, tag, name, and describe the final works… to multiple sites.
complainers… complain. hours a day, almost every day. the scarcity and lack mindset is extremely powerful, and takes enormous will and practice and effort to replace and overcome.
i know i haven’t personally mastered it yet, either, which is partly why i share these little stories, observations, and rants… i am talking to my (our) self.
but, i also know that you and i are implementing a synergy and quantum field process that benefits the all; consciousness affords us a (playing) field to explore, examine, and discern the patterns and programs and conditions we prefer and desire.
we could call it trial and error, but that’s inaccurate. it’s how things may seem to operate in our physical expressions and manifestations, but so much is ever in process beyond the increasingly translucent veil.
outside of and amid the doing and being and believing, our thinking and feeling and focus and unconscious information gathering is fostering the near-perpetual asking… and the universe hears and heeds it all.
this is also an argument for expounding the power in symbols and words: i want to be a writer; i am a writer; i write.
then, there’s the perfectionism issue, which is simply another way of saying “i don’t write enough”. you’ll find the gems amongst the tons of less-than-stellar rock and rubble of mining your art.
