Why I Write

Most people who have ever gone to counseling knows that it’s vital to keep a journal or a diary. Any counselor will tell you it’s very important to write down your feelings and thoughts. They will even tell you to sit down and write a letter to your inner child or anyone who may have offended you growing up.

To be a good songwriter, you have to put your thoughts and feelings together to create a song or a poem. Even writing short stories or novel, learn to write what you are feelings as well as what you are thinking.

Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

A good journalist must have the 5 W’s when reporting the news. They must gather all the facts from all sources and sides. That even goes with anyone who write a blog as well.

I knew that I wanted to be a writer, not just of songs but of books as well. I didn’t want to be a journalist even though I had studied to be one in college. I knew that I had to looks into how I can be a better writer; even if it meant going to college. I had no idea what to actually do to make that dream a reality.

There are 4 great motives for writing.

1.) Sheer egoism: desire to seem clever, to be talked about, to be remembered after death, to get your own back on grownups who snubbed you in childhood.

2.) Aesthetic enthusiasm

3.) Historical impulse: desire to see things as they are, to find out true facts and store up for the use of posterity.

4.) Political purpose: Desire to push the world in certain direction, to alter other people’s idea of the kind of society that they should strive after.

Everyone writes of them in one guise or another. It is simply a question of which side one takes and what approach one follows.

All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives there lies a mystery. Writing a book can be exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. You write about what you know and feel.

I have written songs lyrics because the words came to me as I would sing them. I have written stories and in the process of putting together a novel, in hope in getting published. As my blog gets bigger, I may looks at using my blog site to published my books. One of the books I’m in the process of putting together is called, “Rollag Hills.” Another book us is called, “Class of ’84.”

A good author looks to other famous authors to emulate to help them with their books and stories. One of my favorite authors is John Steinbeck.

In a way, writing my blog has came full circle to the time I was in college. That college education is coming in handy for writing my blogs.

I have written letters to the editors in my local newspaper that was published. I even had people say that I should looks into doing something more than just writing those letters.

Then when someone I know suggested that I should look into creating a blog. They encouraged me to do just that. Their daughter had a blog as well through Word Press; where I was able to get started. My blog may be small now, but you know what they say about small dogs. You never know what you can expect from them like a big dog.

Since I’m so full of opinions about certain subjects, a blog is a good place to air my opinions. Writing letters to the editor was a good training; but it has it downfalls. Don’t get me wrong, I can understand proofreading for errors; but I have had some letters in which the editor would take out something because they didn’t agree with it before they published it. When they do that, they take out the real meaning and reason for the letters. At least, writing my blog, I can keep my opinions in it. It’s your rights to either like it or not like it.

There’s no end in sight of topics I can write about in my blogs. With all that is going on in the world right now, I will never run out of ideas. Those on the Left, Biden and crazy stupid people are giving me the ammos to write about. There may be topics that is off limits for some reasons or another. If I don’t have much information on a certain subject, I won’t touch it until I do. There are some subject I cannot write about right now; but maybe down the road I can blow it out of the water. That’s why I keep the subject in my blog general.

I can now look into creating a video blog. I just need to figure out how to go about doing it. By doing that, I can expand my viewers and who knows be able to say, “take this job and shove it!” I can be living my dream of being a writer, and getting rich off it. If you have any ideas on turning my blog into a vlog let me know.

The big question is: will you want to see my ugly mug sharing my opinions? I can write better than I can talk, because of my speech impediment. When I get excited, I can sometimes be hard to understand. I can easily be misinterpreted because of my speech.

If you like my blog press the like button on the bottom. If you have any comments, feel free to comment as well. If you want me to turn my blog into a vlog, let me know and show me how I can go about doing that for you, the viewers.
