Writing – I do it every day. Overcoming all my fears and doubts, I find my laptop and put together all those words to draft a blog. To me, writing is something which should make my readers live the specific moment I am writing about. It’s like making readers feel what my characters are feeling. As a writer, I do struggle a lot, specially because it is not something which I do full-time. So, while I was trying to find out something to write about today and since I was struggling, fiddling with the pen and browsing through my Facebook, and at the same time thinking about what to write, I thought I can probably write about the struggles every writer goes through. I might miss on a few points but yes, I’ll try to cover it all.
- Being public about your personal life
Okay so being a daily blogger, I have to generally talk about the events which happen in my life on a daily basis and I have to find how that can be helpful to my readers. Basically, making my readers experience what I have already experienced and learn from it without having to face the consequences. Sometimes, I experience something which is like too personal to be shared with everyone around. So, even if I want to let people know of the loopholes, I really can’t do that.
- Struggle with perfectionism
A must necessary but difficult skill for writer is attaining perfectionism. Drafting a specific article 100 times is what makes it even worse, though you start drafting better articles with every attempt. But is it ever perfect? NO, it’s not.
This is something which I struggle on every single time I am writing a blog. So, I get the topic and I start writing, but once I am half-way through the blog, I start thinking if it’s worth it. Whether my readers are able to connect with me or not? And I don’t feel ashamed to say that I am scared to write a blog every time I do it because no one is perfect, right?
- Managing time
I know I shouldn’t be complaining about this one since I am the one who has chosen to opt for Daily as well as Travel Blogs, but managing time every day is challenging. Specially at times, when I forget to schedule a post for the next day, it’s so frustrating. This makes me experience so many sleepless nights, yes, there are times, when I just can’t sleep because I am working on my blogs and 10 other things.
Alright, this is something which is the most important factor to keep you going. MOTIVATION! When it comes to writing every day, there are days when I just feel like leaving everything else and just going off to sleep. Being a self-motivator, I have to keep motivating myself constantly specially when I have my “burn-out” days.
As long as you put your heart and soul in to anything that you do, there is nothing that can stop you. Struggles are a part of every profession, right? I believe getting through these hardships is something which brings you one step closer to your goal.
