I just now discovered this page. I didnt know I had a blog page here. I usually blog everything on my blogspot blog.
Anyway I've been thinking about my writing. Writing is and has always been a hoby, something I do in my free time which usually isnt much especially these days. Now it seems like its becoming more than a part time hobby. Now I have a professional editor who has read some of my stuff and tells me I have a real talent and has offered to work with me for free. Wow I mean how many people get this kind of opportunity. And now I feel the pressure to write now it doesnt feel like something I do whenever I feel like it. Now it has placed itself on my TO Do list along with all my other responsibilties, committments and obligations like my job, my church, etc. and at some point I need to clean my house, do the laundry and, most importantly of all, spend time with my husband.
I fear that if my writing becomes another chore, another task to be completed, it will cease to be the enjpyable outlet it has always been. If that happens, I fear the natural quality I bring to my writing, the natural crativity and expression will dry up.
