If You Simply Can’t NOT Write…

Recently, I’ve been thinking about how my professional and creative lives can, and often do, intersect.  Since I started working as a content marketing manager, I’ve felt the change underfoot, the sense that what I’m doing with my personal writing is somehow tied to what I do at the office.

Today, as I brainstormed ideas for my latest company blog post, I came across a Copyblogger article on writing.  I have no idea who Demian Farnworth is but, damn, he has got some interesting things to say.

I’ve been correcting people’s grammar for years now and, yes, that’s about as interesting as it sounds.  But it’s been only recent that I’ve put editing on the back burner and started diving into actual writing for work (writing, for the record, is editing’s fraternal twin—they come from the same place, but they do not share the same DNA).

Among other points Demian Farnworth makes in this post is to write a lot (everyday) and read a lot (everyday)—duh.  Any writer would know this; how else can you absorb what other writers are doing and put it into practice in your own work?  But, as Farnworth calls it, “writing yourself silly,” is another matter entirely.

Writing, like any hobby, seems to only get better with practice.  No, Ray Bradbury, I have a day job and I don’t always have time to write 1,000 words a day.  But, with my day job, I just might be able to scratch the surface of that goal.

Because, as I sit back and reflect on the time I’ve spent with my current company, I realize that my creative writing truly has gotten better the more I’ve parlayed the work I’m doing at the office to the work I’m doing at home.  And, I would imagine, so too has my professional writing—those nights chipping away at my memoir have got to count for something when I arrive at the office with my creative juices flowing, right?

At the end of the blog post, Farnworth makes the following claim:

Listen, writing for a living is not easy.  The fact is, there are much better careers to pursue. But if you simply can’t NOT write — if you simply can’t imagine a life WITHOUT writing — then you will probably make a pretty good writer.

Let’s hope so.  Because, like any other goal in life—career ambition, creative fulfillment, or even my 5 year-old stepson’s quest for cartwheel mastery—I won’t get there unless I work for it.
