or, How I Went from Hating to Loving the Writing Process - An interview with Stephen Merchant got me thinking about my own writing journey from hate to love.
I love writing when I’m in the thick of it. It surprises me (especially in my writing day job when I don’t always have the choice of subject) when I come out of the work and realize how much time has passed without being distracted from the words. But I often struggle to get started in the first place. It’s like there’s big wall between me and the page and sometimes I can’t manage to climb it.
What I love about writing is that it turns abstract thoughts that exist in my head to real words that I commit to paper (or screen). It turns something vague into something real. Something that I commit to as my opinion, my identity, and my words. I love it!
