Stop Thinking – Start DoingIt goes without saying that before you start writing any story, you need to spend some time thinking, reminiscing, or even evaluating some information and events. However, do not waste too much time on procrastinating the writing process. The story begins as soon as you place a dot on paper.
Focus on Your Own StyleYou won’t become a good writer stealing ideas from someone who is already popular enough. Make other people recognize your unique style among the rest of great authors.
Write RegularlyIf you want to become a writer, treat yourself as a writer! Writing on a regular basis will help you develop the sense of responsibility to create, produce, rewrite and improve.
Practice Makes Perfect!We are not born writers. One should work hard to develop and polish his skills in order to master a trade and stand in a crowd. Keep writing to create a masterpiece!
Keep ReadingBroaden your outlook, enrich your vocabulary, and get new impressions from every single opportunity. It is worth approval to teach, read and learn from others; the point is not to lose what is yours.
Write When You Are InspiredIt is a good idea to hold a pen and a notebook next to you all the time. You never know when the inspiration will visit your mind. Better be prepared!
Challenge You WritingFrom time to time, you may feel like your characters or the plot in general lacks some adrenalin hit, some entanglement, a boom, an explosion, something that would add an action to your story. Don’t be afraid to experiment putting your character into harsh, unpredictable conditions. The consequences may be really fascinating!
Create Conducive AtmosphereThis advice may sound too humdrum. However, comfort, relax, and calmness are, in most cases, a pledge of conducive atmosphere, which often results in a creation of a really good novel.
Strive for ExperienceA person can be called a writer if he or she is able to reproduce and evoke the emotions a reader has never experienced before. Open new boundaries; strive for unknown sensations in order to reflect them on pages.
Reward YourselfToo much of doing something isn’t good, too! Working process should take turns with rest. As soon as you’ve finished a chapter, make a pause and go for a walk or have a dinner with friends. Reward yourself with activities completely different from writing. Switch activities and come up with a bang!
Never give up on a half-road! The one who strives gets the recognition. Implement the tips above in your writing process and make your book, story or any kind of essay real!
