Is it weird that I HATE writing on paper?? Is it weird that I find it hard to call myself a writer??? Is it weird that I want to write but I can't make my own OCs or make a good enough plot???? 😭 btw love ur blog ❤️❤️❤️
- No! Absolutely not! There’s lots of different ways to get your story across, pen and paper only being one of them. If writing on paper is just not your cup of tea, that is a-okay. Personally, I prefer an electronic notebook.
- Oh, dear. No, that’s not weird either. There can be a lot of reasons a person would hesitate to call themselves a writer. Maybe they haven’t had the time, motivation, inspiration, etc. to write recently, and they feel pressured by the expectations that come when others hear the word “writer” in reference to them. Maybe others in their life have made comments such as, “Well, technically, are you really a writer? Maybe an amateur blah blah blah.” It’s our belief that if you like writing– could be poetry, original fiction, fanfics, scripts, songs, journaling, whatever– bam, you’re a writer. But if you have other reasons for being uncomfortable with the word, that’s okay too.
- And once again, nope, that’s not weird at all. It can be difficult to create OCs and plot. Luckily, there are writing prompts, aus, and templates that can help ease the process (some of the time).
