“I can’t be a writer as a career.”
-then you won’t
“No one will understand my words.”
-then we won’t
“What the world doesn’t need is another writer!”
-then you won’t be one
Everyone doesn’t wake up with the notion to be a writer. A poet. A playwright. A novelist. But if you did, follow that feeling with a sincere belief there is reasoning behind it and seek it.
Where ever you go, there you are so you might as well be happy.
