It was started in August 2017. I didn’t expect that I am going to be writing something and following writing community. It was CSWC(Couchsurfing Writer’s Club), I met this community when I was bored and I don’t know what do, So I opened my Couchsurfing app and looking for some activities that I can attend. The first event that appear was writing activity at Sedjiwa Coffee at 19.00
It was fun, I really enjoy this community and the new friends that I meet there, I learning a lot of things from there, and also gaining some new friendship, it was unexpected for me first to write something.
But the moment I was taking serious interest and doing it consistently was not at August 2017. It was started at 24 May 2020. I was heartbroken, I was devastated, my mindset are being tested, and I was forced to change myself, I was leaving my old ways that didn’t work, and embracing the new ways and ideas. One of them is writing.
You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it.That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistenceOctavia E. Butler
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside youMaya Angelou
Writing make me feel comfortable, make me feel relieved, because I put my emotions and thoughts into it, I am just not writing some blank text, it have meanings. I don’t really care about good writing, I just want to writing something, I want to write my stories, otherwise I would feel bad, because at that time, I don’t know what to do to ease my pain. I was commit to myself that I would write 30 days of Diary.
It ended up becoming a website, and the diary already at 36 days. I am enjoying this activities, there are no days that I am not writing something, it was inseparable from me. I love it. I didn’t expect that I am going to love writing. It was unexpected, but I glad that I try it.
Now I am focusing on writing a quality content, the ideas could come from my stories or any ideas that come to me. Hopefully someday, I could write a book that everyone read. For now, I am focusing on improving my writing technique and content.
