The phrase, "there aren't enough hours in the day," has never wrung so true.
| I like your writing. I especially enjoyed the beginning of it, I thought it was clever. I actually looked it up in the dictionary myself lol |
I have always felt the need to write and to have time for myself, to do things I really want to do to write a book, a short story or just lost myself in words â€¦. but there isn't any time for such endevours.
I often wonder what it would be like to do Chris McCandless did- The lad whose life was portrayed in the book "into the wild.â€ It might sound cheesy but nature tends to make things a little better sometimes.
I have also wondered what it would have been like had I been given different chances. Would I have been able to be a writer, had I been given the right opportunities, I often ask myself. Would things have been different, had I been born somewhere else. I'm tortured by "what ifs", I surmise, though I try to put them aside and just to enjoy what I have. I mean I have to I have no choice â€¦
I recently read that to be successful one has to forget about the past and the future and concentrate only in the present which is what really matters. This might not be very useful for your current dilemma though....
What I can say is that what you have just written here is something of value. I recently read a paper which contains the following quote which I like
â€ Any human act that gives rise to something new is referred to as a creative act, regardless of whether what is created is a physical object or some mental or emotional construct that lives within the person who created it and known only to himâ€
It looks as though what you wrote â€“ believe it or not - was a creative act after all â€¦
is a letter
stuck in the hands
of an inexperienced writer.
I don't know why these lines came to mind and somehow they made sense...
Hope you find what you are looking for.
