Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
I love to write and I hope to one day publish, but I have a LOT more work to do before I get anywhere near there. Oh wellz, I'm fourteen; I have plenty of time. That doesn't mean I'm going to be lazy with it though.
I'm a new member and this is my first post...I'm a musician,songwriter,and I do folk art occasionally.
I'm 31 and I consider myself a writer, and when I do bother I've just about always got a compliment, but usually I don't' bother writing because picturing in my head so thoroughly makes me lose my drive to write anymore. I've lost a ton of good ideas over the years, and the only reason why I have the few I do is because I wrote them down/type a scene somewhere.
Quite the double-edged sword, really.
Yes, I'm a writer and have independently published some work. I have multiple daydreams that I feel could turn into other projects, but when I document them - and then look back on them - I didn't think they were as interesting as I originally thought. Sometimes I have to really believe in what I'm doing in order to go ahead and make it official to make it public.
