If writing could change one thing…

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Singular Sensation.”

If my writing could change one thing about my life it would be this….that the persistent voice inside my head that keeps telling me I need to write, just quiets down or changes its tune to the effect of “yay you’re writing.”

Yes, I used to overwhelm myself with expectation, I didn’t write because I wasn’t sure what to write about…I never thought to write for the sake of finding my own voice…sort of putting the horse before the carriage as I ought to do.  Many writers discipline themselves to write every day, regardless of whether or not they feel inspired to.  It is that discipline I feel that I must begin to practice consistently. I don’t need to thnk ahead to “what ifs” or “who would publish me” or anything that would come from one writing…I just sort of want to write, for writings sake, and I think that would be change enough, the satisfaction of knowing I am doing what I should do, because something in me wants to. Like right now…. 😉
