What it takes

If you are a writer (any kind; if you do it as a hobby or as some kind of a paid job), you might stop every now and then to ask yourself what it takes to be a good writer.

Sometimes I am torn between writing what I want and what I think readers will want to read, as I believe every writer is. Staying true to yourself, writing about stuff you want and keeping your readers happy and wanting more is already such a hard combo. But is that all it takes to be a good writer, I had to wonder?

I don’t necessarily think there is a right formula or that anyone can be interested in all I or someone else writes. But I guess there is a certain thing that makes some writers more compelling to the masses and what makes them have that x-factor with which they stand out in the sea of wannabe famous writers.

Of course that some topics are more… let’s say noticeable, like sex, when compared to others. Sex sells, everyone knows that saying and we have a lot of real examples of that even in writers (50 Shades of Grey being the obvious one), still writing about sex is not part of the good writer formula. Firstly, because good writers are not automatically those who are being read more.

And then, on the other hand, having the skill of writing is also not the biggest quality it takes to be a good writer. Because let’s be honest, something can be well written but boring to read or have no real purpose.

So, to conclude this weird thing-of-a-post, maybe I should list some things that can help get you (and me) closer to the title of a good writer.

A good writer needs his or hers (or its/theirs, we are pro all genders here) own voice, that cannot be shut down easily and that can be recognised effortlessly.
A good writer should write about what he/she/it/they want but that topic should either be at least a bit popular or advertise in some manner on pages (or whatever) that are specific to that topic, so the people you are writing to/about/for can actually see it.
A good writer can write about controversial topics (that is welcomed actually), but only in a way where they are not attacking someone else and where they have their own opinion and an explanation that is not hurting anyone in a major way.
A good writer writes when inspiration strikes and knows how to break the horrible writer’s block.
A good writer interacts with the public and readers.
A good writer knows why he/she/it/they are writing.
A good writer lays in all of us.

At the end

 

At the end
Please come with me
Where we talked about forever
To throw away our infinity.

At the end
Please come with me
Where we layed once again
To remember my first and last touch.

We knew this moment will come
But no one was ever prepared

To meet this part of the story.

At the end
When it comes, if it comes
Please don’t just leave me behind.

Oh f**k, it is spring again

It is not really easy to explain so I am not going to go in great details about the reason why I absolutely hate spring. So let us begin with the short story about spring.

They say it is the season where everything wakes up and blossoms but to me it is the season of bad decisions and even worse happenings. Almost every bad thing that has happened to me and scared me for life was in spring. Memories of those times have made me strongly believe in the theory that something bad is awaiting me every spring of my life. My hatred for this season is so great that I often say that nothing good ever happens in spring which is obviously an exaggeration.

So yeah that is it for today, happy spring everyone! Maybe it is the season of joy to you but to me it is the season of leave-me-the-heck-alone!

New Year’s Resolutions

So, I have been doing New Year’s resolutions for a few years, but always on a paper I hid from everyone! Now I decided to make it public because I think that way I will be more dedicated to make them happen.

Here is my list:
1. Be as happy as you can. √
2. Visit at least two new countries. √
3. Keep you anxiety down. √
4. Enjoy in happiness and remember it! √
5. Try to over analyze less. (half a point for trying)
6. Be less pessimistic about things. √
7. Do something for yourself, you deserve to be a little bit selfish now and then. √
8. Don’t run away from love and commitment. √
9. Keep up with good work (school, blog, etc.) √
10.Try not to miss a Tuesday on your blog! (oops!)
11. Work with amazing companies and people!
12. Double your followers. √ (I at least think so)
13. Try to worry less. √
14. Be the best YOU you can be. √
15. Don’t forget you have people in your life that will love you no matter what. √
16. Never give up. √
17. Upgrade your wardrobe with something new and different! √
18. Don’t forget to read, you know how much you love it! √
19. Don’t be afraid to show that you are different! √
20. Let your voice be heard. √

And since today’s the last Tuesday of the month here’s a moodboard inspired by my resolutions!
