I know what you must be thinking, “ Who is this girl writing us with advice about writing?” Well, let me introduce myself, my name is Krystol. I’m 33 years old and I believe we have a few things in common. We love to write and probably read as well. Our favorite thing to do on our spare time is to write and we feel weird when we are unable to. Am I right? So, I just wanted to give you some encouragement on this lonely journey that many of us take. You see, we are often misunderstood by our peers, family, and friends or just about anyone. I mean, most people think we can’t make a living at doing what we love. Eh, what do they know? But, what I know that YOU have a gift to share with the world. Okay, well maybe not the entire world at least not right away, but we have some things to get our chest. I like to say that writing is the door to our heart. It’s where our stories lie and our words unite. There are times when you don’t write a thing or life happens and our love is on the back burner. It’s okay, we are only human, born to make mistakes, (by the way that’s not my words, that is the group “ The Human League”, but you get my point. When we fall, because we will, we always do at some point in our lives, get back up and keep typing or writing ( if the notebook or journal is your thing). No matter what way you prefer to write, continue to do it no matter what anyone says. If you are writing a novel, blog, or just something no one will ever read, don’t let other people stop you from putting the words down. Words are powerful when people tell us what not to pursue. But, you don’t have to prove yourself to anyone if they doubt you. We only get one life to live, so why not live it by doing what you love. I hope this can encourage you to keep writing following your dreams.
All The Best,

I love it!
Thanks! How are you?
Not bad. Though I am blocked poem-wise . I can’t seem to write a good poem.
Ask yourself this question. Why did you start writing poetry? How did it make you feel? Go from there. It will come to you when a story needs to be told. Keep your head up. You’ve got this.
Thank you! I write poems, short stories and just articles, when I am blocked on one, I am good on the other, and just descent on the next. It’s a confusing thing 😁
Oh, I am that too. But, change your mindset to a positive one. Instead of saying, I am blocked on one, just say, my passion for another style of writing is needing my attention. Instead of being confused, just say I write in many genres that needs my attention at different times. 🙂
I love these inspiring words! 🙂
