Inveigle Liberated Me to Disengage from Expectations – A Quintessential Truth #10


liberated_woman

in·vei·gle

inˈvāɡəl/

verb

 persuade (someone) to do something by means of deception or flattery.

I will not be seduced to what others want me to be.

Recently I was told that one of my stories “has potential” and that it was just structured wrong.  The narration was in present tense, not enough foundation on the main characters who would figure big towards the end.  To further this I was also told there was too much space for narrative that could’ve been given to dialogue.  The story started in a heightened place, but there wasn’t much of a tone set.

Now, I realize where and why this came about and from a professional side  understand it.  But from a personal side it hurt me.  It was like a slap in the face and somewhat of a wake-up call.  I’ve said in the past for all of us to never let anyone alter or change our written work and I still stand by that.  What I failed to realize is that in some group settings for print others see things differently and I don’t call myself a “professional writer” by any means.  I simply just write but others do and only wish to see their baby thrive.  I write because I want to give some small spark of hope to others who are afraid to try to put out in the open their first ever piece.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I fully understand that there are some a whole lot more passionate and talented than I about making some money with something they have a great desire to do and there’s nothing wrong with that by any means.  As for me, well, I’m not out to make money from anything I write so therefore I politely removed myself from the publication.  The reason, I will not change any of my pieces unless I feel the need to change them.  I’m neither angry nor sad.  It is what it is.  I’ve been publicly sharing my creations for two years now.  This is the first time I’ve ever been requested to make changes to satisfy someone else and it may have bruised my ego a tiny bit but I will not conform to what someone else wants me to be.  I just can’t do it.

I wish nothing but the best for everyone but I won’t change how I create things.  I could use big fancy words, I know as I have done this but honestly I prefer simplicity.  I have a learning disorder and I am a bit dyslexic.  Some times my pieces may come across to others as if they were written by a child and you know what, I’m fine with that.  They have touched others in ways one would not think possible.  They have brought about enlightenment and encouragement where others had none.  Someone very dear to me taught me from the beginning that I only ever need to reach “one soul” to make a difference.  To spark something inside that one soul is all I would ever need.  I hold this advice to my heart and soul and it’s all that matters to me.  That one adored friend gave me the brain food that no-one else ever did my entire life.  I’m not in it for money.  I’m in it to spread love and hope to those who may not believe in themselves enough to take that leap.

Including myself, I appreciate your work and I give the biggest thanks for your inspiration and support when I almost let my own quill crust over and wither. One truth you shared with me is write for you. So happy you have taken your own advice! Much love ❤️💋🌹

  3. Keep on writing, Jilly!
    As for making money, the only time I’ve earned a dime from writing is when I was a marketer and as an instructor teaching the craft. Otherwise, I’d be living in a card board box on the street.
    So keep tapping those keys and knocking us out!
