So you want to be a writer,
But you don’t know where to start,
How to go from making scribbles
To creating works of art.

You have so many stories,
They could fill a hundred books.
But to finish even one
Is much harder than it looks.

So you want to be a writer,
But you don’t know what to do
When a block forms in your mind
And the words just won’t come through.

You sit and stare in silence
At the blank page on your screen.
You’ve discovered it’s a struggle
Just to write a single scene.

So you want to be a writer,
But you’re overwhelmed with fear
That nobody will appreciate
The work you hold so dear.

So you start procrastinating
And you break your writing streak.
Now your writing days are scarce
And your dream is looking bleak.

But to truly be a writer
Takes a dream and so much more.
And you may think you’re alone,
But we’ve all been there before.

We’ve all been through the struggles
And we’ve all endured the pain.
We’ve faced so many rejections
That we’ve nearly gone insane.

But still we keep creating
And we don’t give up the fight,
For the world needs all our stories
To be brought into the light.

So put your pen to paper
And your fingers to the keys.
Always keep the stories coming.
Write as many as you please.

Don’t let anybody tell you
This is not who you should be,
For to truly be creative
Means to set your spirit free.

And the truth is just by writing,
You’ve already come so far.
So you want to be a writer?
My friend, you already are!
