to write... or can i write?

I've been sending out resumes lately to apply for work as a writer. Writing has always been one of my passion, which was why I started this blog in the first place, and in a moment of delusion, I had come to believed that I could perhaps write like J.K Rowling or even J.R.R Tolkien, breathing life into words and taking people on an exciting journey through the stroke of a pen (or in more modern terms, a press of the keyboard).

But who am I kidding, really? If there's one thing that defines me, it is my overly critical judgement of myself. I am my own worst critic and I admit that the use of English language isn't one of my greatest strengths. Come to think of it, I have little or almost none above average strengths but that's not the topic.

The point is, unlike great writers out there, I lack the ability to conjure up great words to wow my readers nor am I able to keep them reading line after line of my work. If I could, this blog could have won a Pulitzer prize for me a long time ago looking at the enormous amounts of articles that I have churned out over the past four years. Heck, I couldn't even get my grammar straight every time I write, despite proof reading it a few times over that I'm starting to think that I may be mildly dyslexic in some ways.

But like they say, it's never bad to try. So I tried. But like every other job that I've applied for, news or replies are hard to come by. I guess I just have to sit by an apple tree and wish very hard for an apple to drop on my head.


  1. If it's any consolation, I'd live to read what you've to write. How many times have we came across old apeks, writing about pages worth of printed articles; yet, the content feels ''stale''. Know what I mean? Media constantly searches for new voices. And, I'm sure your voice is worth listening.

    After all, who doesn't love reading a handsome boy's article? Haha, Happy New Year, Lukey!
