[105] A Mini-Reflection On The Journey

It’s been more than 10 days since I’ve written something. This was sort of a test to check my resolve for writing. How serious am I about it? I wanted to check will I miss writing.

I did.

Every night there was a want to write. The red book lay catching dust waiting for me to open it and scribble down my subconscious thoughts. Although, the want shied away from turning into a need, so I never wrote.

The only consistency I have provided my life with is breaking habits that provide me with focus, resolve and motivation. A motivation that hallucinates to never turn into a discipline.

The answer is always blowing in the wind, we forget their existence because of their invisible nature. Tangibility is more consistent than abstraction. But the magic is in the abstraction, for it hides you from the truth.

The answer to all my woes is to write every day, to gain clarity, to grab focus and glide my mind rather than letting it stray. So I hope to make it the final nail in the coffin because this is maybe the last time I’ll ever get the freedom I have. So I hope to stay true to the title of my blog. Smoke Words Every Day.

  1. When you’re a writer, you can’t help but write. It’s in your blood. It’s good to take breaks from time to time, though. It helps bring back perspective. You put this more eloquently than I have.

  2. “Want to” and “need to” for a writer can be a very gray area indeed. We should be very careful not to miss the opportunities to, at the very least, write those thoughts or potential stories that keep pushing themselves upon us. We’ll for sure regret if we let them slide into oblivion.
