The writer in me
I never saw myself as a writer.
I mean, I write stuff but am I a writer ? I suppose. Writing in English is a huge challenge for me (I'll blog about that someday), but I'm writing every single day in order to improve my writing (being in beBee helps me a lot), my English, and my vocabulary. To show the world I can do it.
As far as I can remember I've always been writing, short stories, awful stuff, but writing. I was pretty bad doing an essay (in France you have a lot of rules to follow to write in school). And It was frustrating.
A few years ago I decided to write and to enter different writing contests, hard work always paid, and I won one. I don't talk a lot about it because it seems so far away, even If I still proud of myself (I'm not going to lie).
I have a large collection of book notes, and I'm the happiest person in the world buying a new book note, if it's pink it's better. I work with two of them, one for ideas and stuff, another one to list all the work I've to do.
I've been writing with a lot of different software, Ommwriter, Scrivener, Final Draft, Pages, Open Office... (Maybe I could blog about it if someone is interested).
But let's talk about the blank page...Or the stories you start and never end. The work you spent hours doing and you noticed it's not going anywhere. This work.
I've to buy a new computer (mine act too much on his own), and It freaks me out in some ways, because I'll have a different keyboard, different feeling, etc... Is this going to increase my « I start stories but don't finish them ?» or will I be more efficient ? I may sound like a crazy person but anyway, I'm a bit of a writer and a bit crazy too.
In the meanwhile, I sure may buy a new book note to add to my collection.
Have a nice day !
