Human beings have been writing for a very long time. Ancient cave drawings show man's attempt to communicate with each other. It was their way of giving their "readers" an insight into their every day adventures.
We go to great lengths to get the word out. We think we have something worth writing about and we are confident that others will feel the same. So we write. About everything. Even when it might not be the best time to put pen to paper.
So when, exactly, is it wrong to write?
WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY. ..
Just because you think the world had done you wrong, doesn't necessarily mean you should write about it. Anger which fuels the motivation to create a life changing event is one thing...anger which fuels a rant about the injustice of the driver next to you cutting you off is simply a pity party.
WHEN YOU ARE ENDING A RELATIONSHIP...
Going through the pain of a relationship ending is bad enough without dragging it out on paper. Few of us can remain emotionally separated enough to be able to write about a broken relationship when we are in the middle of one. Words are committed to paper and thrown out into the world at a time when there is the highest chance for future regret.
WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING WORTH SAYING...
By this, I mean those people who are so eager to get the word out...any word...that they simply slap some sentences together, tie it up in a pretty bow and carelessly throw it out on whatever public forum they come across. It makes me wonder if those "authors" think so little of THEMSELVES or do they think so little of US?
Good writing is like a fine wine. It takes time. Ideas have to grow and ripen before they can be harvested. Manuscripts have to be carefully processed and allowed to age until only the best work is produced. This can take years and only the best writers will have the patience to wait for the right moment before inviting the world to take a taste.
Only then is the time right to write!
