I have met many writers that have the kind of talent it takes to top the Amazon Best Seller list with ease yet many of them do not publish their work. They write for the joy of writing and just post the work online for the world to enjoy.
This comes as an article submission, a blog post or a documentary… All for free!
One of the traits of a great storyteller is the ability to fantasize vividly. Many writers can do this at will and some can do it while keeping up with a conversation.
Some get hooked with the question if writers are born or made?
To be honest…. when we start writing, it can be daunting to read the amazing books by our author heroes and wonder how we can ever be that good. Their drive is simple, understanding and straight to the core.
For writers, some of their works don’t seem great at first until when proof read by an expert. Furthermore, edited and the pieces put together to make more sense.
Did you enjoy writing when you were young? If you enjoyed writing when you were a child, it could be a sign that you were meant to write. Children know what they like and tend to know what they will do with their life even if they cannot express it.
Writers are born with the creative skills, honed on for so many years.
You may want to know how authors like Brian Tracy honed their abilities for these years remaining relevant in the marketplace.
One of the secrets is Addiction!
For you to make the most out of your writing career, you must be addicted to writing. The responsibility you take could be to help give solutions to people’s problems. Being addicted to writing is not a difficult task. It is a learn-able skill which you probably can learn every day.
It is obvious that the only cure to get addicted to writing is getting the words on the page.
Writers are mad men – they think differently from others.
I’m being very honest on this – I’m not a slow learner. It may take me lots of time to adapt. That’s not even much important. The important thing is that I can’t let go until I win.
After training from my mentor, I realized that great writing requires both clarity and imaginative embellishment in equal measure.
My first drafts were terrible but not chucked with lazy ideas. Reading them over for the second time is depressing.
As a high school student, then, learning how to write wasn’t something I picked much interest to do.
My passion for it grew with time having being accompanied by a mentor who worth to be called one.
I learn from him that writing talent could be built with time, after the right process.
He unveiled the secrets of life as a writer. You owe it all to yourself. This is because the most important things in life are only achieved with practice, patience, and commitment.
Have you ever found yourself lost in thought? Have you ever found yourself totally immersed in your own thoughts when you should be focusing on something else and those thoughts are plots, poems or lyrics?
Do you have more than a couple of notebooks filled with writing from cover to cover?
When writers first start out, they write anywhere and everywhere.
As children, we write on walls, books, and notebooks. Later, we find ourselves scribbling ideas on cocktail napkins and the backs of envelopes when nothing else is handy.
It may be easy to learn to write like someone. But, the hardest part of it all is learning to write like you.
When you come across a word you do not recognize, Do you NEED to find its meaning?
Your writing style may not be like mine. We have our differences.
Writer are the accumulation of their experiences, lifestyles, desires and fears.
The human soul is a deep, deep thing. As authors, our job is to dig.
