I feel blessed for my ability to write. You rarely encounter someone who has an interest in writing. I mean, you don’t see writing listed alongside travelling, reading or shopping as someone’s hobby. It’s a kind of weird hobby to have actually.
But, I like to write. It’s fun. I especially like to write about things that I personally know about and need not any references when I write my posts. Which is why I am freaked out whenever people ask me to contribute something to their website. Like I said, I need not references when I write my posts, mostly because I’m so lazy most of the time, but when it comes to articles, it’s all about the facts and references.
I know you don’t necessarily need those things, but it does help, A LOT, if you do; to make your point stronger. I learnt this in university. Assumption is bad. Real bad. And also, it is rather intimidating to read articles with a lot of witty remarks and questions that would make the audience think.
I’m not sure I can do that. I’m not sure I’m good enough to actually make people think the way I think because I sometimes question my thoughts.
What if it’s not good enough? What if they think that I’m stupid? What if they think that I am just a child; immature in my thoughts?
All these things go through my head as I consider an offer to write for this big ass website where EVERYONE go to.
It’s nerve-racking and surprisingly, exciting.
We’ll see how it goes. *fingers crossed!*
