To be or not to be a writer

Reading a lot of books, we learn something about the writers. I’m calling them writers because I’m more comfortable with that word. And I’m focusing on them. Those who dream to write.

We see them grow eventually and it’s great.

Quite often I realize not everyone grows in the right direction.

They have a path to choose and unfortunately for most of them, it shows they not choose wisely.

Books become numbers.

Stories become targets.

I’m worried.

They loose focus and they will loose everything they’ve been trying to build.

I know not everyone is lucky to be on the spotlight but since you’re there, make the most of it and do it well. Be original, be authentic and do not get too much influence from others. Be different and stay true to us and to yourself.

I’m not a writer, just perusing through some kind of poetry but everything I do I make it special, if not for me, for others.

I had to write about this because…

I’m still on a funk, can’t you tell?

Help me get back to reading!
