I introduced myself a day or so ago as a rookie to blogging and freelance writing. I normally write about politics and current events, focusing on issues the mainstream media does not report. I said then that I would like to post articles in the writer’s category occasionally to break the monotony and break to a lighter side.
As a newbie to writing I find myself becoming addicted to placing my body at this keyboard and writing something. I already posted two political articles today……didn’t feel like a third, but I had to write. I believe in the 6 to 7 weeks of experience I have now gained I see improvement. I have a question for the more seasoned writers. Is it good that I am addicted so quickly and can’t get enough? I don’t want to just put words down, I really am striving for quality and content. Is there a point where it is too much? I know once in a while you need a break, even a vacation.
I was given a Nook a few months ago as a gift. I bought books to read and found like most items you purchase, you get what you pay for. Because I like to read a lot I would buy some books rather cheaply and some I ordered that were free. I became quite frustrated with the lower valued readings, as the grammar and spelling errors were ridiculous. I got to thinking, I can write better than this. By all means I don’t believe writing is easy, it is not.
I had thought about writing before, but never really knew how to get started, and was I articulate enough? My nook readings convinced me I should give it a go. So, here I am and enjoy it more than my day job as an International Banker, which is not as glamorous as it sounds.
I could use some tips on the addiction thing, and critiquing is also encouraged, but don’t beat me up too bad. Thank you for reading.
