Have you ever thought how much we used the written word? Almost every day throughout
our lives we write something, whether it’s emails, blogs, or a simple grocery list.
Writing is the most widely used tool in communication.
Even with modern technology and all the slang letters that are supposed to take place of a completely spelled-out word, you still can’t get away from writing.
Not only is it necessary to know how to write, but it’s even more essential to enjoy those words. The interaction of text is a time-honored endeavor. Think how boring our lives would be without the laughter or tears that come from reading the verses of a good book. So, if you enjoy passing along emotions or advice through scribing your thoughts, here are a few things to ponder about in the endeavor to become a better story teller.
1.Write about subjects that inspire you. If you’re passionate about
something, write about it. Through inspiration comes success.
2. Always get someone to read it. As the author of your own stories, you will not be as objective as needed.
3. Sit down and write. Don’t wait until you get inspired, make your own
4. Don’t worry about word count until the end. Novelists must do
re-writes, then comes the time to beef up the count or take-out
5. Oh yea, and about re-writes. Yes, that’s part of a writer’s life.
Accept them, do them and move on. (Notice, I said them.)
6. Don’t force yourself to write, but write - make occasions to put words
down and do this several times a week. Whether, ten minutes or eight hours any amount of writing is better than none. In the end it all ads to completion.
7. Find your niche and stick with it. Don’t beat yourself up over the fact
that you do things differently from the next author. Just as everyone has their
own unique imagination, writers have their own way of creating; don’t fight
it-use your style to your advantage.
8. When you’re typing away (or pecking in my case) stay away from the
internet. Don’t check email or do research, just work on the storyline.
9. If grammar of punctuation is your short coming. Get a writing program to be you helping hand. There’s no shame in it and it helps you develop skills.
10. Accept that you’re not perfect and embrace the fact that a lot of good
authors started out just as you have.
I love this quote.
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your
ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." ~ Mark Twain
My thoughts on the subject-
“Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things [are] possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23(KJV)
