writing & being

I've just came back from a discussion with the authors who published their works through Elexmedia Komputindo. They wrote novels in a new genre called as "teen's heart". This is a genre that follows the era of "teen-lit" after the booming of "chic-lit"

Too many genres, I think, now, that publishers try to introduce to the readers' community, while basically they can judt call those new genres into more common stream.
However, I don't want to discuss much about the terms. I just want to share my ideas on how important it is to write.

A special man I used to know told me that I MUST write. He, himself has been writing in many newspapers, not only in his country but also in others'. He told me that history will keep us in his mind only if we have left our ideas in writing works (I don't use the term of "paperwork" here because nowadays it seems irrelevant due to the expansion of e-devices). He kept on saying "WRITING&BEING", and he recommended me to read Nadine Gordimer's book titled 'Writing&Being'

In fact, I'm not a person who doesn't like to write. In fact I LOVE doing it. Yet, writing takes not only creativity but also consistency : that's what I don't posses now.

I have many wild ideas in mind, but I need enough time to spill them out on a writing works. Somehow I am thinking of leavng my office days to have anew life as a writer. I think I have many ideas in mind. But until now I never really know why I always put that idea behind and keep on working.
Do I like certainity too much?

I don't know.
I want to share my ideas on love and life,
and hopefully some people will like it, and who kows, follow it.
I know something for sure now.
before I regret the hours that I've been throwing away without realizing my dreams!!!
Go, write something great, girl!
