On Being A Writer

I am trying to catch up on the writing I was supposed to do this everyday, starting a few days ago… so bear with me

I consider myself a writer… This seems like sacrilege, because I have yet to publish, or be paid for my work… though I have performed a few spoken word pieces… I have yet to go down in history with the likes of Allende or Giovanni, or Poe… so what does it take to be a writer?

I have a desire to be great at this, and though I have no formal training… I would like if nothing else to be great at this to somebody… that's not an answer to the question I just posed I'm still fleshing that out… but I think a writer has to have something to say, and a personal way of saying it… a way that nobody else has, that is distinct to them… It may echo other's styles and show influence, but that makes one better… to walk you gotta see somebody do it… some of it is instinct, but alot is imitation, then practice to perfection… until you get your own walk… or you own pen personality as it was…

I am trying to be that… I think I'm doing pretty good… but we'll see what happens…

About genesiawilliams

I must apologize if this isn't exciting... though this may seem odd my decision to enter the blogging world, was less for an audience and more for me as an exercise in discipline, which i clearly lack if you see the frequency of the posts, but still it is weird because I am airing my thoughts on the biggest communication tool since the pony express, but if you like what you read feel free to comment and/or share... if not thank you for taking the time out of your life to check me out.... I'm pretty laid back, and I'm open for comments....
