Writing’s my thing but it’s not easy

Graduating college has given me enough time to put all my focus in defeating my writer’s block and creating stories again. Right now I’m working on a paranormal series that will cover self-growth, sexuality, loss, acceptance and healing. I’m truly excited about finishing the series and filming with a couple of people I met at a Janelle Monae pop-up screening in Atlanta! Even though it’s been difficult to be creative, I’ve made connections with people that have helped me realize what is blocking my creativity. And the reality is that I’m afraid. I’ve deleted a lot of my work because I’m afraid that it’s awful, that no one will want to read it. All it’s done is keep me from improving and has kept me stuck for a long time.
So I’m going to do something different. I’m going to keep writing, keep watching youtube videos on how to write better, and give myself time to edit after instead of deleting anything.
My goal for 2019 is to have my first poetry book published. It’s going to cover all the areas in my life I’ve needed to heal from, all the beautiful things I’ve encountered and lessons I’m learning in my life. I fully intend to make this happen. This obviously requires me to know myself and do everything I can to keep myself accountable daily. Graduating and living at home has left me with a lot of time but there’s steps I can do to reverse my un-productive habits and use them in order to both create and grow as a person.
