Book, Write Thyself !
I hadn’t envisioned that writing successfully would be that difficult. I thought it was easy. But my, how many reasons have I had that sabotages my efforts. Even up till now I am not sure if those reasons are actually true. They feel legitimate, but are they so? This very argument itself is an excuse not to write.
I am not sure about it, yet I read the occasional articles about writing. Some answer my questions that I didn’t know I had except for occasional particular difficulties in getting it done.
Legitimacy issue, ‘who am I to..’
I think that’s the main point.
Do I have something to say ? Yes I do.
Do I have something important to say ? Yes I do.
Am I filling a knowledge gap ? I don’t know. I haven’t read all the books in the world so I don’t know for sure. If they were around and accessible to me, I wouldn’t have had to look for the missing knowledge for myself. I grew up having a real hard time looking for answers to which none I have met or read could enlighten me but the knowledge which eventually I would get to.
But what about the lucky ones after me ? Yes. Lucky ones. Because I could provide them the insights that could smoothen their eyebrows quickly.
I guess that is legitimacy enough.
Now I just have to organize that book. How can I make it useful such that the successful in person stories be useful for everyone else ? After all, that is why I would be writing the book, n’est ce pas ?
I struggled so you don’t have to ! That’s why I am writing that book. That is why that book needs to be written, why it wants to be written.
So Book, Write Thyself !
