If you can’t write, have tried over and over again and yet your efforts end up in the trash can…..don’t jump off a cliff ! Chill. Relax, take a walk, get some fresh air and decide how to move forward.
Most People Aren’t Great Writers
Great writers are much like great anythings people do. Some are natural; not many. This is true in every field. Doctors, dancers, actors and landscapers all need to work at their craft to become proficient and maybe great. Writing is no different.
I dance like an avalanche and no amount of training or instruction has or will help me. I am certifiably dangerous on the dance floor. No kidding. My wife loves to dance; has long been a member of a dance team – Studio 34 – here in Rhode Island and SHE IS GOOD!
Over the years I have learned that it is best to insure that there are an abundance of non-dangerous dancers available when we go out and I will, on occasion, volunteer one of them to dance with my wife. You should do the same ….not dance with my wife but rather hire someone to do your writing.
If you have tried and struggled, been repeatedly frustrated by an unco-operative keyboard, then I suggest you do what you do well and farm out the writing. Self torture is ugly and unnecessary. There are plenty of good to great writers ready and able to help you.
AWAI – American Writers & Artists Inc – of which I am member, has so much to offer! Whether you want to improve your skills or simply leave the frustration behind, AWAI can make your life easier and more enjoyable.
They offer many programs from the beginner to the accomplised level and everything in between. If you want to be a better writer they truly can help. Emails a problem ? Short content a misery and long pieces tortuourous?
You have to choose – either get better or get out of the way and hire someone to help. If your kidney is infected are you going to try over and over again to repair it yourself or maybe you should use a professional kidney repair service (ie a doctor) ! And then move on and do what you do well.
If all else fails and the level of angst is high then reach out to me and we can see if I can help you…..and you can dance with my wife !
