About the fears of writing


So, I've been writing on and off for about nine years now and I would like to say that I have everything under control and I know precisely what I'm doing, but it's the complete opposite. I would think that after so many years of writing and sharing my stories, my fear of sharing the novel idea would disappear but again, it's the complete opposite. About six years ago, I was diagnosed with the writing blok and that's when my fear got really strong because I wasn't able to finish any story. And I mean NO story at all. I had a lot of good ideas, I wanted to write, but when it came to actually writing it, I got bored throughout the sixth chapter and gave up. 

I feel like my writing became quite the fearfull little animal you want to cuddle and take care of but it's really easy to get scared and run away. I feel like I need to be careful of my writing and not show my novel idea to everybody because what if I don't finish again? Maybe there's someone out there in the same position and this might help him not feel that bad. So let's examine my fears.

How to read more books?


Lately I looked at my Goodreads challenge and I was surprised by the number showing up. I've read 78 books yet and it's the middle of the year!!!! For someone it might not be much but for me it's record. That's crazy! I don't even know how that happened because I had uni, I was getting enough sleep as well as social life. Though I think I might know what it did so let's jump right to my tips and tricks on how to read more books. I know you want to read faster. We all have that big TBR pile that's threatening us with cruel death.

Reading one book at a time?


When you think about it, books are magical artefacts containing infite number of worlds to which we can travel through imagination. If that's not magic, then I don't know what is. Though most people read one book at a time and devote to it all their time and energy and imagination, it doesn't work for me. I need diversity. I need to have options. I need to read them all at the same time because my TBR is threatening me to suffocate me in my sleep. And that's a really dangerous image. I don't get the plots confused or the characters so it doesn't affect my reading. Only in that aspect that I get more reading done. 
I'm one of those people who reads many books at the same time and their currently reading pile on Goodreads has no ends. Why? Simply because I read on diferent devices. Let me show you.

Summer Bucket List a.k.a plans I will probably fail to accomplish


I like to set up my goals and plan a lot. Like A LOT. I'm one of those people who on the New Year's Day are like "Yeah, let's do this! This year is going to be awesome! I have so many goals! I will achieve them! I will be awesome. Yeaaaah." And then I fail to accomplish them.

Look, it's middle of the summer and I just created my summer bucket list... list of things I will at least try to accomplish and hopefully I won't fail. But better late then never, right?

Where do I find inspiration?

Inspiration is a fickle thing. It flies around and teases our creative souls all the time. Sometimes, she just wants to play games with us and by games I mean torturing us with her absence. I can imagine her sitting on the curb or lounging around on my comfortable bed and laughing her ass off because she’s giving me the silent treatment. 

Well, she’s not only tough one in the relationship. I found ways to make her come to me and I feel generous to share those ideas with you because I’m awesome like that.

Bookish things that annoy me

Reading is a pleasurable activity in which you can escape the reality and forget about your problems because why deal with problems when you can run away, right? But truly reading gives us so many opportunities to live other lives and experience unimaginable adventures outside our ordinary lives. Well, when I put it like this, it seems that being a bookworm is just simply an amazing thing. Wrong. There are so many thinks we as bookworms have to deal with and sometime, they can be annoying.

Things I learned thanks to writing stories


Writing can be not only relaxing hobby (ehm, who am I kidding it's a torturous device designed by the biggest evil in the world because one cannot stop but suffers so much), but also learn a lesson about this confusing little world we live in. Or life in general. One can't have enough of life lessons.

Now I will kindly share wisdoms I learned throught those numerous years I've been writting... ok, I've been trying to write stories.
