How did you get to be a blogger?
I get that question often!
I just started blogging one day!
Did I know what I was doing?
But that didn’t stop me.
I just did it.
I always knew I wanted to write.
So, I just started writing.
It’s like anything else.
YOU WILL NEVER GET GOOD AT SOMETHING UNLESS YOU START!
I, like many others, have some favorite authors.
Marianne Williamson is one of mine.
So today, I am sharing a short poem of hers.
I’ve had it posted on the back of my office door for years now.
And I read it at least once a week.
To remind myself what I am capable of.
I think for many people.
We back down from doing something.
Because we are actually afraid of shining to bright.
Afraid of using our power.
Well, no more!
I’m giving myself, and you.
Permission to shine like a m fu*king Rock Star👈👈👈
Here is the poem:
If you want to be an author.
Just make sure it is something you are passionate about.
And you don’t have to be an expert.
When I first started blogger.
I thought, what subject can I write about that no one else has?
Turns out, not much.
Because pretty much EVERYTHING has been written about.
BUT here’s the thing.
You write about ‘whatever’ from your point of view.
That’s what your reader wants from you.
Once I figured that out.
Writing became a whole lot easier for me.
When I first started writing.
Could I ever write something really special?
Something that people would be like…”OMG, Patricia, I love it!”
I mean, I wasn’t ‘technically’ a writer.
So how could I ever write something that people would actually read AND love?
I wrote a blog years ago, ;How can I be happy? (5.14.17)
And if I tell you, how many people loved it!
I had one man write me and say he loved it so much he made copies and put them all around his gym.
That’s what I’m talking about.
When you touch people’s souls with your writing.
And it’s true what they say.
It’s just that easy.
And it’s just that hard.
When you start out writing.
It’ is just as easy to think BIG.
As it is to think small.
Might be a bit more work.
But, that’s ok.
One day you’re writing a blog.
Next year, you’re writing a book.
You really never know where your writing will take you.
And that’s what makes it all so much more special.
You know how they say everybody has at least one book in them.
Well, I’m writing my first one.
If all goes well.
It should be out Summer 2021.
I can already tell I will be writing more books.
That’s the thing about writing.
Once you start.
It’s like the floodgates have opened.
I’m really excited to share my book with everyone.
And I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of it!
I have been waiting ten years to write it.
This one is extremely personal to me.
So I need it to be just right.
To me, that is what being an author is all about.
Staying true to your heart <3
Don’t ever give up on a dream.
Because someone else told you it can’t happen.
Or that you won’t be able to do it.
Only you can decide that.
So again, if you want to be an author.
Start writing! NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:
That’s a wrap!
Till next time,
Patricia <3 always
