Here I go again, blogging before I go to sleep. That seems to be the trend for me nowadays. Blog first, sleep later. So what do I blog about tonight?
You'd think I would immediately know what I would blog about the moment I open my blog. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Every time, my mind is completely blank on what I would post. And every time, I am amazed that I get to post something I never thought I would. William Forrester has taught me well, I have to say.
For those of you who don't know yet, I am an aspiring writer. Yes, until now, I am an aspiring writer. I still cannot say that I've accomplished anything since the only people who have read the things that I've written are my family and friends. Some articles are well-received while some have been criticized, mostly by my Dad. Nonetheless, what they say is not really a hurdle for me to make me stop from writing.
I remember the movie, "Finding Forrester" starring Sean Connery as the reclusive writer, William Forrester. When writing, Forrester said to Jamal Wallace (played by Rob Brown), "No thinking -- that comes later. You must write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is...to write, not to think!"
I believe that, too. Writing comes from the heart. Maybe that's why I am able to produce these entries for my blog. When I think about what I'm supposed to write or what I want to write about, I usually come up with nothing. But then I would stop thinking...and I would end up with something that I really wanted to write about in the first place. Forrester said it all, "Writers write things to give readers something to read."
Hmm...I guess it's time to sleep.
