Master's in Creative Writing

I guess...


I think...


Maybe...


For sure, I have been postponing lots of writings just because I thought I was not perfect.


You know, there's this intrinsic feeling that keeps holding me back whenever I wanna write.


It's been exactly a year since I started my Wix's subscription and look...I did not produce that many writings.


At minimum, there should be like 365 blog posts already...


But


I don't have any formal background in creative writing

I only graduated from local school where the language of instruction was Indonesian...


So obviously...writing in English is quite a challenge.


Since I'm a perfectionist, sometimes I feel like my writing is not authentic.


Not original.


Not me.


Whenever I'm about to hit that "publish" button...I always get anxious.


What if I have spelling mistakes?


What if I have structural mistakes?


What if I have capitalisation mistakes?


What if people think I write garbage?


What if I look desperate to just write? So my writing feels forced?


Hmmm...


But then I realize if I were to wait until I have my MA in Creative Writing...I would never start to write and eventually blog and post them.


So I might write again.


Maybe at the end of the day, you don't always need to have a reason to do something.


Just like my beating heart never stops to ask, "Why am I beating?" it just beats, right?


So? I'll write then.


~ Peace out, beautiful human ~
