i write the sentence the way I want then look again as its okay but no genius writing mind boggling prose. I tell m yself you are d oing the best you can but that wish nags at me. Some people are born knowing just how to write to make people enjoy their writing and their work is always exciting.; I have had to learn the hard way and wish I were someone else. I enjoy writing and find sometimes its exciting too but always compare myself to published authors.Yet at times I feel I have talent so just believe in myself.I do often write from heart yet often it does not seem to entice. But Im tired and perhaps much too hard on myself so am thinking I am not so bad after all. With that I am about to write a good night song and soon sign off] to snack and read as tomorrow is another day to write and think ]and learn and earn too One original post by P Hatley copyrighted 2016

Yeah. I wish the same thing too. I'm not a good writer but I think the important is that others can understand what you're trying to convey. That they can react because they understand your thoughts.

Best advice I've ever heard: smack your inner critic aside the head and tell him or her to go away. Then you'll be fine. Night night dear @hatley.

I feel like my writing is quite plain as well. Some people have quite a talent to be entertaining writers.

One thing I've learned over the years is that even published authors don't find writing easy. Writing from the heart is the best kind of writing if all.
