It’s weird, when it was time to decide what to do with my life, I chose to be a writer. I never gave it much thought until at the end of University, when I was running out of time. The choice always seemed so far off.
I never wrote anything seriously before then and I’ve only been writing for about five years since. I took jobs where I could work as little as possible and write instead. I feel like I’m at a place now where I can actually finish something good and I’m about to. I’m already browsing agents but I still have some extensive editing to do.
For some reason writing is the only viable thing I could see myself do.
I’m a lonely guy. My sister had a kid a year ago and I’m more convinced than ever that I never want one. I ended a relationship recently too, realizing it’s too much work. I’m too self centered and I like spending time with myself. Funny thing is I like talking to new people but I don’t want to make friends and create obligations, people seemed to like me too, at first, at least… I must sound terribly immature.
I think there’s a bit missing in my head.
One thought on “Writing is my way out”
Ha. I actually feel you on the bit about being self-centred, and maybe that’s the reason why I chose writing too. There’s still a lot more I need to learn about myself. Maybe that’s it. Not writing for writing, but dealing with myself so that the writing will come.
