Hi all my lovely bloggers who I love and adore
I have a question for my fellow writers/authors/ creative genius – recently running up against a problem. I take my writing seriously and I work hard at it. Late night and early morning and a caffeine in a Starbucks IV ( if only they were actually a thing) I live by myself, which helps with the writing I have to admit but certain people in my life have a misconception about my life and my work. As in
How hard is writing, anyhow?
I think when I tell them I’ve been writing all weekend they picture me on the sofa in front of the television eating a whole bag corn chips. At first it didn’t bother me because I knew that I was working my butt off and living off five hours or less sleep a night, plus a nine to five job five days a week to pay the pills. Don’t get me wrong, I love my life and the way I live my life isn’t in question.
The question is what do I do about the people that judge my life. Do I just swept their thoughts to the side and under the rug only to step aside when there is a speed bump in my path. Do I confront them about it? or do I just come to the understanding that creative minds are just different and we are all entitled to our own opinion or d) all of the above.
Have you writers/authors/ creative genius come up against the same struggle? If so, how did you overcome it?
