For the past few weeks, I’ve been contemplating on which road to take as a writer. I posted a poll a short time ago to see how many readers are bloggers/writers. The results?
Majority of my readers are both.
Many are trying to be bloggers while writing their stories. So, the next question in my mind is…
Since we’re moonlighting as both bloggers and writers, what do we truly consider ourselves to be then-
Or, a blogger?
Can we truly be both?
Personally, I’m finding it difficult to devout my time and energy to be both. I’m starting to wonder how do I want others to perceive me to be-a writer or a blogger. Which one holds more value for me? More importance?
Yes, blogging helps you gain more readers and followers; but, is that my ultimate goal?
Bottom line, what I truly desire is to create stories. I want to scare my readers. Make them cringe, or cry. I want my readers to care as much for the characters as I do. I haven’t been doing that. Not for a long, long time. It’s starting to make me feel depressed. Moody. I can’t focus on anything. All I want to do is daydream.
Yet, I enjoy blogging, and meeting new readers as well as other writers. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and ideas with the creative world.
Where does that leave me though?
Must contemplate some more.
