Well, I hate to post more than one time in one day because I’ve read somewhere nobody wants to “hear from you” more than once a day. Tough luck I guess.
I will make it brief though, I just wanted to start a new little series “on writing” about lessons learned along the way to becoming a real live writer (which I will be, one of these days ;0)
So, this is I think the most important LESSON NO.1 – you have to accept that not everybody is going to like your work, and even then, not everybody that likes some of your work will like all of it necessarily. It just seems to be one of those things, you just gotta toughen up to.
And I think about it and say for instance, with my love of Eminem ;0) I really actually quite dislike the majority of his music (although in all fairness, I have not given it all a fair chance at a real good listen – so do keep that in mind). But the music that I do love of his, the songs that I listen to on repeat over and over again, I love them so much I want them to become a part of me, a part of who I am (i.e. Sing for the Moment, Till I Collapse, 25 to Life, Beautiful of course, Where I’m At and Lose Yourself just to name the six off my iTunes top 25 songs playlist).
I used to hate Eminem actually, until I gave him a chance, and then I found some needles in the haystack, wait…no, no…some gems in the rough (yes, that’s the one I meant), and now I keep coming back hoping to find more of those gems once again. Mosh, for instance, is one I just recently discovered.
So anyways, this is really just a testament to open-mindedness, but also, a lesson I’ve found, on becoming a writer, which is my dream.
And then lastly I promised this would be short and sweet, so for now, I bid you adieu ;0)
