An Adventurer's Dream

The hardest part about writing is that little voice in your head that tells you that you aren’t good enough. That as hard as you try, your words can’t compare to the masterpieces that are already in existence. It’s a voice that you want to slap.

I am working on a novel that I planned in high school and it is such a great story idea. But each time I write, my brain tries to tell me that I cannot adequately write the story I want to tell. The thing is, I know I can do it. I go back and read my work. It’s actually really good at some points. These little pieces of work really inspire me to continue and tell me that I am good enough.

And that’s such a great feeling. Writing something and then feeling proud of it long after. I cannot accurately describe how it makes me feel, other than letting you know the smile that occurs is extremely large. I’m sure you’ve all felt this at one point, even if it isn’t in writing. It’s just something that makes the fireworks go off inside of you and let you feel like you are on top of the world.

So that is what I need to hold on to as I continue to write. I’ll push my inner editor aside. Right now, I have things to write. I have that happy feeling to get, to keep, to hold in my hands. And I will hold it.

And you, dear readers? What is something that you like to do? Would you like to share about a time that made you extremely proud?
