A Frustrated Writer

Many of us are happy on where we are, what we are and who we are - just for now. But after a year or two, would you still be happy with your life? Still have the contentment you have? I guess not to the fullest.

I am on my twenties right now. Recently graduated from college that took up a degree on Computer Science. I am now working, with two years contract. I am earning, I am a degree holder, people shown some of my achievements. I thought, when I finished with my studies, life would be easier. If I get a job in an instant, money would not be my problem. I was so proud for not being an undergrad and unemployed. But, AM I HAPPY?

What do you think?

Half of me says, yes I am happy with my life right now. I am surrounded with many true friends, and they keep on going. People think I am smart. Worries about my looks is became a less issue. But at some point, something is missing on my life. What is it? My real dream.

When I was a kid, I was a bookworm. Until now I still am. I love reading. I love writing stories. That's why I am a frustrated writer. When I start a story, I just can't seem to finish it. I always lose the idea. I always blocked out.

I want to write a story about love, about broken promises, about successful lives and bountiful friendships. I want to be known as one of the leading and famous writer of my era. Maybe just like "Bob Ong", "Lisi Harrison" or "J.K. Rowling". It was a big dream. And i am losing my faith to become one.

When i was younger, I've never been a part of any group that has a connection writing. I do write short stories but for me it was nothing against the other's writings. But now, its not too late. Thanks for blogging. i am now starting my career. Though it is true that i really am a frustrated writer (because im no good), its worth a try. Right?

Its never too late for our dreams no matter how old we are. It depends on how ca think positively and believe on ourselves. Life is about taking risks, trying and learning thru mistakes. Lets all achieve our dreams before it is too late.

Hope you like my post. First try to write about being a FRUSTRATED WRITER, just like me.

i'm also a frustrated writer..i think the difference bet. the 2 of us is dat i joined our journalism class when i was in 3rd year high school but unfortunately i wasn't able to continue it bec. i was busy with my studies. Now i regret it. Since our university doesn't offer Mass Comm. course, I just put it aside first. but someday i still want to be a journalist

i think all of us go through frustrations as writers, even big name authors. i read one good advice for aspiring writers: to write everyday no matter how you feel or what your state of mind is. in a word: practice. i know this is often easier said than done but i think it's true :)
