Are you conscious of living, of being Alive? #amwriting

Writing fiction is a hit and miss affair– some days you do well, other days you don’t. But the point is to keep at it, and keep on keeping at it.

And the reason is not just to make a living, which is important. It is also not to make a record of living, which is important too.

It is to be conscious of living– the most important of all– because that is what separates the beasts from the humans.

Writing is not the only way, but it is one of the significant ways of developing this consciousness. Are you conscious of living, of being Alive?

If you’re not a writer, nor can you be bothered about being conscious of being alive, I have more tangible stuff about blogging in my post at Blogging from A to Z April Challenge 🙂
