I’ve just been taken on as a writer by SoundInflux. They sent out some messages on Twitter advising they were looking for new writers for reviews. I applied. There was a time when I wouldn’t have been able to even get that far but that was doing very little for me and I realised that I had to change. What is the point in being a writer if you aren’t writing? That’s honestly not some kind of deep, loaded or metaphorical question, there is no point. I’ve taught myself to sit and write as I’ve taught myself to apply for things of interest to me. All things considered this has been a year of substantial growth for me. Looking back I can’t help but smile.
I think if you are reading this and sitting on an application or an entry or anything else and you don’t know what the force is that is stopping you from submitting it then just do it. Once you do you’ll realise that it really doesn’t matter all that much. Some things come to fruition, others drop off, they are all important to you.
