Writing Essentials | Some Tips on How to Be a Writer

By: Abielle in Lifestyle

Over the beginning of this summer, all have I ever done is to write and read. And guess what? It’s almost as good as traveling. Yet, I have also experienced this fear before I started writing that maybe, I might not be good enough to be a writer. One thing’s for sure; I wouldn't know if I hadn't tried. I wouldn't say that I’m a good writer but it’s already safe to say that I AM a writer. That’s the first thing on the list.

1.) You can’t be called a writer if you do not write. Get that pen and paper (or laptop) and start writing. Whatever it is that you feel in your heart, put it down and write it. Sometimes, it doesn't even matter if it makes sense. Write how you talk or think. Don’t think of rules just yet. Don’t think of rules at all. Once you get started, you’ll see that you begin to write uncontrollably.

2.) It’s okay to be stuck. Unless you have completely, well thought-out concepts and ideas with perfect flowing dialogues in your head, it’s okay to get stuck and stop at some point. Once that happens, leave your chair for a while, go out, watch a movie or eat. Don’t stress yourself out. Because the thing about having things written down is that they won’t leave you. It will still be there when you get back. So once your piece starts calling you again, come back to it and continue writing. No matter what happens, finish it!

3.) Read books, Watch Movies, and Travel. Of course you have to have something to write about. Most of the things you could possibly write about will be based from experiences and the things you read and see. So once you've collected enough thoughts, then you can begin writing again. This time, with a fresher take on things. By reading books, watching movies, and travelling, you set yourself for adventures that you don’t even have to force yourself to write, because you don’t want to forget those moments that you write them all down anyway.

4.) Add your own creative take. Add your own style to writing. Give your pieces their own voice. Don’t sound like a mindless robot, come on! Find ways on how you can give you own touch in your storytelling. You’re already filled with the knowledge and the drive, now go and work on how you can get people interested to read your pieces. Then in a few years’ time, you’ll look back and thank yourself for writing. The moments will live on.
