Some writers are lucky enough to understand exactly what they want their writing career to be like.
How exactly do you want to follow your heart and discover a job you will be happy doing?
My very own writing journey has taught me innumerable things that extend some distance beyond time and temperature.
If you are seeking how to start writing today, here are some tried and tested ways you can.
1.0 What was your childhood like?
Often, our truest passions emerge in childhood, only to be pressed by real life pressures.
So think about what you loved long before you had to worry about your writing career.
Did you love telling stories? Did you engage in writing competitions? Did you cherish sharing your story with other people?
Find out those things and work on it.
2.0 Identify the hero you need
Of everyone you know, either personally or in your extended frame of time, whose career would you most want to emulate?
Reach out to the person to learn more about how they got to where they are, or, if that’s not possible, read everything you can about their career and life.
Then, after this – START!
3.0 Discover what makes you happy
Then, narrow the list to the top three or four things that makes you happy.
Keep it handy, review it often, and use it as your soft blueprint point to keep you writing career on the go.
4.0 The life goals you have
Preserve your last goals in thoughts, but try to admire and appreciate the YOU in making. How do you do that?
Frequently remind yourself that you are getting a bit closer to your dream.
5.0 Seek help from writing experts
The truth is, if you think you do not have a talent, you likely know someone who does.
For instance, I wanted to start a blog myself however I wasn’t a pro blogger. I purchased a blogging course reached out to a talented blogger and renowned writer who became willing to teach me and organized myself for trial and mistakes.
You can do this, too.
6.0 Invest in yourself as a beginning writer
Find some quiet time and see which courses naturally interest you. What would you study if you could do it all over? What courses do you think you could teach?
Which subjects scare you to death, and which ones do you find boring? Revisiting these possibilities will help point you in the direction of subjects and topics that you love.
