Stop Aspiring

Stop with the aspirations.

You are a writer.

You’re not an aspiring writer.

What ever it is that you do, you do.

You don’t need some third party validation in order for you to be legit.

Where did we get this idea from?

That we need to be exalted in order to be legitimate.

If you write, then guess what? You’re a writer.

Point blank. Period.

I’ve been writing a lot about writing lately because I’ve stepped out of my own little world and looked around.

It’s quite funny, what I see.

I see people in this writers world being pompous because they’ve made a few bucks writing.

I assure you, it’s not that serious.

I thought we were doing this for the craft? When did it become strictly about money?

Yes, I do think writers should be paid for their art.

But let’s not forget that it is art. Once we turn this into a business, you can forget about it being enjoyable anymore.

Fair warning.

Keeping writing.

About Anthony Boyd

I go by the alias Anthony Boyd & this blog is my series of theses on philosophy, spirituality, physical expression of strength & human behavior through self-reflective spoken & written word. I’ve been a Union Delegate for 6 years. During this time I have developed countless leadership skills that I’ll be sharing with you all on this blog. Leadership is something I’ve develop through hours of research, strength training & personal application of growth strategies. I started this blog with the intention of disseminating the leadership & developments skills I’ve attained over the past 6 years as a leader because there is a huge need for male leadership. It has developed into a conduit for sharing these ideas in hopes that others can gain insight from them as well. Two things have always been constant in my three decades of life on Earth, my ability to express myself through the word & my unquenchable curiosity of everything around me. Combine that with my obsession with strength training, personal development & we have this blog. It is my hope that I can provide endless value, insight and perspective gained through experience as a leader to the readership I have developed here.
