I know what this must sound like. If I ever saw a title like that, I’d think two things. One – they’re a narcissist, and two – they’re a bit of a bragger if they’re calling themselves a writer. But honestly, there’s nothing wrong with being a narcissist. You’ll always have someone to love you. Yourself. Anyway, getting to the point of why I’m writing this. Yes there’s more to this than just showing off how obsessed I am with myself. Just hold on a little longer and read through.
When I read something, the degree of how much I like it often depends on how much I can relate. If it’s fiction, I imagine myself as the protagonist. If it’s just some random writing, I see if it applies to me. Sometimes I just wonder if that piece of writing makes me feel anything. So when I go through my blog, each one of those checkboxes gets a little tick. Everything I write is somehow based on personal experiences. So one scroll down the feed on my blog is essentially a stroll down memory lane. Jeez. That’s some quote worthy stuff isn’t it? I get this way when I’m passionate about what I’m saying. You might ask me now. What is the purpose of this post? Well, it’s that no matter who you please or impress. Write for yourself. Write something you’ll be able to look at years or even just days later and smile because of it. Today I feel like a writer. Not because of someone else. Not because of a nice little compliment. I am indeed very thankful for all the wonderful things everyone says. But today I feel like a writer because I scrolled through my blog and enjoyed what I read.

WordPress has a funny way of messing with my life. They’ve removed that feature where you can republish an old post and bring it back to the top of the feed. So most of you may not have seen my post regarding guest blogs as a post only stays on a visible range in the reader for mere hours.

All it takes is a feeling. A kiss that sends you reeling. The smell of the rain or the music that momentarily takes away your pain. Every where you look there lies an untold story. So, keep an eye out for the poetry. It’s not always pretty. Not if you want reality. The truth doesn’t have to rhyme. What has to be said, needs to be said when it’s time. Those demons on your shoulder, they will tell you,
“What do you think you’re doing?”
Flick them off and keep writing anyway.
Some people can captivate you with words,
Like the sound of their voice simply resonates with your soul.
Like every thought they utter has crossed your mind.
Like they have discovered in you, things no one else could ever find.
I do not aspire to change the world,
Nor do I wish to touch every heart.
I could never be that bold.
My wings could never soar that far.
My dreams are made of simpler things.
In a lifetime of writing,
If I could touch a single life, make a difference to one person,
That is all I dream of; that would be enough.
To all the writers out there:
It’s not real unless it’s obsessive.
We all dream. But, you don’t deserve it unless every minute of your life is somehow a journey towards it.
We all love. But you don’t belong together unless you share a passion that drives you insane.
You can write pretty words, think easy thoughts. It might even please the crowd. But you’re not really writing unless every word you write is a window to your soul. The truth is ugly. It doesn’t rhyme. Sometimes it doesn’t even make sense. But the moment you stop caring what others think, you will discover yourself. Maybe they’ll like it, maybe they won’t. At least, it will be real.
So darling, stay obsessed. Make every choice like there’s no consequence. Live every fucking moment like you’re about to breathe your last breath.

Hello and Welcome to my Blog 🙂
If you have any content that you’d like to share with me please leave a link to the post in the comments below.
There’s no guarantee that I will post every thing that everyone shares. I will pick the posts that speak to me, and the ones that go with the theme of my blog.
You don’t have to share just one post, I might pick multiple posts from the same blog. So leave a link to whatever you’d like to host on my blog. Before you leave a link, all you have to do is to make sure you’re following my blog.
I might request some original content that you post only on my blog if I enjoy your writings so please mention it in the comment along with your link, if you’re willing to write some original content for me.
I will leave this post up as a sticky for as long as it is responsive. Everyday I will pick one post and either reblog it on my page and link back to you. Or request you to write some original content for me and post that on my page and link back to you.
Happy Blogging! 🙂
