I have An Idea!

What am I doing?!

Okay. So I’ve been thinking about this for a while – by a while, I mean about a day. Alright, I’ve been THINKING about it for longer, but I’ve only been seriously thinking about this for a day.

I should REALLY get onto explaining the idea, shouldn’t I?

It all started whirring in my head last night, when this blogger friend of mine were talking about writing.

Then, today, the idea blew up into massive proportions when I found this blogger‘s work.

On here, I’ve written one poem – you can read it here – yeah, self-promotion right there!

Can you see where I’m going from here?

I’ll straight out say it: I want to create a blog for my writing.

I have some questions, though: would you be interested in reading? Is this a good idea?

I have a Wattpad account, but I never use it. The community there scares me a little because of the sheer size of it, and it’s also because I don’t think I could keep up with two communities. That’s the truth.

I’d post short stories on there more than poetry, and hopefully, once I get ideas, I could post chaptered novels.

I’ve created this sort of fantasy world in my head, and I could write about that. I could write about so many things; the only question is, should I?

So: should I do this? I’d love your input!

Thanks, everyone!

  1. Follow your bliss! If writing makes you happy and you have the need to create, go for it and don’t let anyone hold you back! Best wishes 😊

  2. Hey elm! ☺️
    This is amazing! I’ve never met another blogger who loves writing short stories/poems like me!!

    I also, have a Wattpad account where I have the short stories from my blog on there and a couple fanfictions of a show I love; Pretty Little Liars.

    I think you should try Wattpad, because it’s an amazing community and I’ve met a few nice people on there. It’s just the case of being the one to approach them.

    If your still not sure then yeah, you should put some up on here as I love reading them as much as writing them but Wattpad WAS created for story writing. Just a thought.

    I hope you make a good decision for you! ☺️

    • Thank you! πŸ™‚
      I do love Wattpad, and the people, it’s just that I don’t know if I’ll have enough time to cope with keeping up with two communities. Usually, for me, things build up and I get too stressed and I scrap one, or the other, and I can’t let that happen. But thank you so much for your input πŸ™‚ What’s your Wattpad name?

      • It’s tsb365, and don’t worry. Wattpad is actually a really relaxed community. And I’m totally the same about the starting something and then never finishing it. But isn’t everyone?

  3. Isn’t it obvious? If you could write, you should do it. Put whatever creativity is in your head into words, pictures, notes etc. Creativity is not something to be kept locked away. Let it out, get it out. It’s a good feeling to share it with people who know how to appreciate it, who can give you useful feedback. It’ll provide and open up new perspectives to improve your writing or try different styles. I’ve read your lyrics and I really liked them. Go ahead πŸ™‚

  4. If you want to, then please do! I’d love to read your stuff! πŸ™‚ If you’re not too sure about committing to a new blog for writing, maybe you could try a few posts on here with your writing to get used to it? Just do what you feel like doing.

  5. Definitely go for it! Look at all the people on here that support you! Do what makes you happy. Don’t let the fear that it won’t be good enough stop you before you have even started. Trust yourself and trust all of us saying DO IT! – Gabriella

  6. Um, obviously!!!!!!!!!! Let the little leaves of writing fall down from the Elm tree πŸ™‚
    And I’d love to collaborate with you at some point on a story (hint hint) πŸ˜€

  7. Yess you should totally do it Elm!!! I would love to read what you write! I did a separate blog and I get professional writers liking my posts that I think is just mediocre so it sometimes it keeps me encouraged. Hope that helps! ❀

  8. I think you should totally do it!!! Great idea.:) I mean wattpad is AWESOME (I also have an account though I never used it). Of course you sohuld do it!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ Good luck! XD

  9. i too have an wattpad account but I don’t use it . If i have too much going on I get way overwhelmed and I quit it . But this seems like a wonderful idea , you probably already did this but I can’t wait to check it out πŸ™‚

    • I haven’t yet actually, but I’ll set it up tomorrow! Thank you so much! And I totally understand about the getting overwhelmed bit.
