Quote: Pauline Kael

"Where there is a will, there is a way. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, anything, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Pry the door open or, if need be, wedge your foot in that door and keep it open."


-Pauline Kael

I Want To Write

I want to write! Every time I think about what I want to do with my life all I can think of is writing. When I imagine my life and my future it always involves writing. I want to write books, poetry, articles. I dream of traveling and writing a travel blog along the way. However, every time I try to write I get stuck. Either I can come up with nothing, or I start something and can't finish it. So where do I go from here? How can I start a career in writing with nothing to write? I need some serious inspiration.

I'm sure I'll find it. Well not super sure, but pretty sure. Of course, then comes the next dilemma. If I find the inspiration and come up with some great writing, how do I get it published? What magazines would print my articles? Is my poetry good enough to be published? Is what I write really even considered poetry? Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself. I should probably just focus on finding inspiration and developing my writing.
