The Written Struggle, The Unwritten Rules

My struggle as a writer is that I only have two thoughts when I write. The Yin and Yang pull and push forever. The Yang says, “You are the greatest fucking writer ever! Emily Dickenson’s work seems as the work of a drunken mongoloid. The audacity astounds me that real people live on Earth and don’t realize my genius.”

The Yin is less forgiving. The Yang tugs to the Yin’s war. The Yang says, “What in the name of sweet, salty fuck are doing? The fact that you even consider writing your meaningless, narcissistic, and shallow trite. Every word that you put on paper is an assault on human intelligence. Even worse, you publish it for others to read!? You need to be stopped before you commit further atrocities on human literature.”

The Ying and Yang constantly battle. There is no room for grey in a mind of black and white. But, peace is found when I remember that I can never think in grey, let alone writing 50 Shades of it.
