I’ve been writing stories, short and long, almost finished my book and done some intensive extensive reading and realized that despite my absence from social life – because when I get into writing it obliterates everything else – for the past months, I’ve never felt more satisfied and fulfilled.
I’ve removed all boundaries, all censuring in my writings. I dared, I experimented and let the words getting type without caring whether they were used correctly. I just wrote for the love of writing.
(And it also helped me realized I’m really bad with coming up with titles. Most my saved silems are named after the characters. But I’m working on it!)
And I’ve never felt so close in liking what I wrote, instead of tossing it aside and starting another project. It could be the worst thing written, it could be the most unoriginal piece of work, still whenever I read it (and you should know that I’m a hard critic and a fanatic editor) I like it. I like how words are put and do communicate what I have to say.
I don’t care if I become the next best top writer, I don’t care if my writings will remain unknown for the rest of my life. The feeling of writing with no boundaries, writing freely and uncaring, is so overwhelmingly satisfying that I’m not quitting. Ever. I write for myself and enjoy every single word I lay down and reread.
And recently I’ve come across Smashwords and I’m really considering upload some of my writing there, just for the sake of knowing people’s opinions and improve my writing. I’ve heard and read of many stories of people posting on blogs having their work copied and even stolen. That’s would piss the hell out of me; every word had brought pleasure and frustration and I definitely won’t let the first casual viewer just copy and paste.
So Smashwords seems they have a margin for copyrights, though I’m still digging into the bit and trying to understand it fully before I actually upload stuff. I’d still post few excerpts here if I ever uploaded anything on Smashwords. After all no matter how much I ignore this blog and go silent for months, it’s where I got my courage in writing and I owe this little space on the web much. And all of you who had liked and encouraged me. Thank you.
I’ll dig deeper into Smashwords, other online publishing and read more about copyrights here and else were. All while continuing with my writing.
Till next time then!
