Don’t Write For The Applause
This post has been seen 5008 times.
Write because there is something deep down in your soul trying to get out, biting at your conscience, kicking at your heart, tugging at your sleeves … fighting! Fighting because it needs to…
But sadly no one pays attention, because most are trying to write for the applause … for the clicks … for the SEO search results. So they focus on the popular news stories, the key words, the rumors, the gossips, the celebrities, because that’s were the applause is loudest where the clicks are largest.
But our duty as writers is to ignore the urge and addiction to the applause. The great writers, the truly great ones, listen to the tug, feel the kick and let the feeling inside spill out on the pages of their blogs or note pad.
They write not to massive fanfare or loud applause but yet they write!
You must write, because what you write is the truth. The truth that needed to be told. Keep writing the truth and one day the applause will find you. It’s 2015…let’s
go typewriters type writers!
