Growing up I always loved books, I found them to be a lovely escape from my seemingly endless study schedule. It wasn't until I reached university that I lost my firm grip on reading, and I fear with it my quasi-decent ability to write. It has been a dream of mine for a while now to construct a novel. The problem, is that I have far too many ideas to form one fluid and logical book of any kind. Do I want to write about entrepreneurship and my journey? Or the crazy science-fiction idea that came to me in a eerily vivid dream on New Years Eve?
Sometimes I wish I could focus and cut the clutter from my mind. Only then will I be truly productive and create something of worth (that sounds a little bit too The Matrix for my liking). Does anyone have ideas for this? Maybe I should try meditation, has this been of a success to anyone?
Even though I have been quite gung ho about my other creative pursuits, there is something about writing a book that is holding me back. I can't seem to stop the fear of not being talented enough or persistent enough to do it. Even if I never send it away to be scrutinised and possibly published, I still can't sit down and try.
