This may be a bit of stretch, but I know it’s probably more than you’re asking for. I will explain it, but the best way is to read the entire article and see how I explain it.
We love our own language, and the way we speak it. Because we are, to quote the great Chinese author Tao Te Ching, our “most intimate” thoughts and actions. But the way we speak doesn’t always correspond to how we actually think. Our vocabulary is very specific.
For example, when you ask someone for directions they will probably use the “gotta go that way”, “gotta go by that way”, “gotta go by that way again” vocabulary. However, if that person happens to be a writer, you will almost certainly get a different response. Because writers are, to quote the great William Faulkner, we’ll use a wide variety of words to express our thoughts and ideas.
In fact, as we speak, many writers are trying to write a book that will never be finished. However, if we’re being honest, we all know that it’s not going to be a finished book because we’re not actually finished writing. Or we’re just not done writing.
And if you have a friend or family member you care about who is a writer, you will probably get a much different response. Because are not all writers, right? We are all writers at the end of the day.
There are many writers out there who are writing a million words a day and still not getting anywhere. They are either stuck in the same old rut, or they are writing for a paycheck. Or their writing is just so bad that it just doesn’t matter. In the end, they might as well be writing in the bathroom mirror.
I can’t say I agree with this statement because I have had two friends who are both writers who I love dearly. One of them, an adult, was one of those writers and he is currently in a writers’ group where he will write a book every month. The other friend, a child, has been a writer all her life and has published her first poetry book (which is a pretty good one) in her early twenties.
I know people who love their writing. I just think it is really bad. People write to get attention but it doesn’t seem like it’s because they are talented. They use their writing skills in order to get published. And if you are that talented, then you are a loser. They are not losers because they have made millions. They are losers because they have spent their life in a profession that doesn’t suit their personality, because of the fact that they have no desire to change.
So what happens when a person has a desire to change? They are unable to. They can only choose to accept this fact and continue on. So what should you do when you feel like you are stagnating in your career? You should not stop at the end of your life and start a new one. Start writing! And by doing so, you will be able to work on your skills and you will be able to find the right people who can help you to fulfill your dreams.
Sòng bạc is a Vietnamese word that literally means “to live on,” but it also means to live continuously. Being in the workplace that you are not going to change, you can only choose to accept this fact and continue on. So you can either choose to live a comfortable life with the people you love and who care about you, or you could choose to try and change your life and start a new one.
