Are We Born to Write?

There have been questions keeping me from sleep of late and entering my thoughts at the most random moments. I do not know why I panic its not like I have expectations to meet or a deadline to meet. Hell no one even knows I’m writing a blog but I have to wonder are we predestined to do the things we do? Are we born with creativity? Are we born with an innate capability to express  ourselves through various outlets? Do we have a choice?

CAN I LEARN TO BE A WRITER?? …. or is it something that is in you waiting to be discovered?

And if not, is there any hope?

Is it OK that I am looking for word lists on the internet? Or asking ‘how to describe someones personality?’ or ‘how to write visually?’ Is it cheating? Is my imagination not at all what it used to be when I was a kid? Am I simply not able to make what appears in my mind mirror on paper! Am I overreacting?

So many questions . . . maybe I should google it!

What do you guys think?

Hello Inspiration!

I always loved the idea of creating a Bucket List. So a couple of months ago that’s what I set out to do. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be and to be honest I found it hard to seriously think about the future and what I really wanted to do, but I did manage come up with three things before I gave up. Woohoo!! I found my Bucket List – if I could really call it that – recently and this is what it read:

1. Watch the Bucket List 

Status: By far the easiest of all to complete yet still hasn’t been watched!

2. Own a VW Camper Van

Status: Well I’m 20, unemployed and cant drive – so I think this one is a bit far off!

3. Write a Book!

Status: Currently being attempted!!! YAY! 

It is the no.3 on my fabulous Bucket List that inspired me to start a blog and after reading something on Writers Digest it has prompted me to blog-a-book!!

I will certainly not be writing an in depth book will question issues in morality or philosophy. (It will most likely be a Romantic Love Story! Cliche right? But I admit to be a huge fan of ‘The Notebook’ and a sucker for a good love story with an underdog or a teasing love triangle.)

So we will see how it goes, see what happens and most of all have fun! Its time I started to tick some things off that bucket list of mine! So stay tuned for some of my ramblings on creating this little scéal (story in the good ole Irish language ;} ) of mine and eventually some actual posts of it too!
