Once the Manila Office is fully up and running, I think I really want to see what I can do to get back into creative writing. I've been talking about this on and off on this blog and elsewhere and it's already halfway through 2015 and I have nothing to show for it. I've toyed around with science fiction and fantasy stories and I've even dabbled in a bit of an LGBT romance with a splash of erotica on the side. I've been exploring different writing angles and potential directions but in the end I still haven't written anything substantial - or at least anything that I feel proud to call mine.
And one of the reasons for wanting to quit the call center industry after 12 years was to finally get back into my writing and see where that would take me. I don't think I'm going to become an award-winning author any time soon, but that time will not arrive any sooner if I keep not doing it.
I need to stop being afraid that I'm going to write crap and I need to break past this repeated feeling of not having any inspiration for stories. I shouldn't feel bad that I seem to be copying a concept or theme from another story if in the end it means that I still write something completely new.
I need to write more. I want to write again. I promise, I will write.
