How to be a successful writer

  • A writer is simply referred to an individual, who writes, regardless of whether it is a book, an article, a blog, or any form of a literary art. Writers are people who find inspiration from the slightest of things. What could be boring and basic to us, could be as unique and magical as a unicorn to the writer, this is their specialty. But what is more interesting is that with the help of a few key points and guidelines anyone with a passion in writing can easily bring out the creativity and mold themselves into a talented writer with a lot of potential and meaningful writing.

    Below are some important tips to consider in order to grow successfully as a writer.

    First and foremost it is important that the individual finds a passion in this form of art. Anyone can write if literate enough but in order to be considered a writer, one must have a love towards doing this. Being a writer is not in any way a profession or done with the intention of becoming rich therefore in no way can it be forced, it is more about displaying your talents and letting your emotions run freely and later on being satisfied by the number of people who share interest in your work of art and respond positively.

    Next, when it comes to becoming a writer one must identify his or her key motives. Are you writing for personal reasons in order to seek self-satisfaction? Or is it with the intention of publishing your work and make some money out it? Or is it to give the society something to read about? This helps you identify the intention of your work and decide what one must write about.

    As a writer, it is important to be dedicated to what you do. As mentioned previously this comes out of passion and therefore, cannot be pushed into doing. If you are working on for example, a story you need to first have a draft of what the story is about, the characters and their link to the story, the moral of the story etc. It is also important to constantly read other write-ups and resources, write and seek other people’s point of view about your story. Always be open to criticism and other ideas.

    One of the most important points to keep in mind is that as a writer it is important to have a free schedule prior to writing. A writer’s skill comes from his or her brain and not from the physical bodily skill. Therefore it is necessary that in order to have a free thinking flow one must work towards freeing up memory space. This could lead to writer’s block which would result in quite a lot of time consumption for no reason.

    Also, engaging content cannot be achieved without developing one's writing skills. It's good to begin by knowing the different kinds of writings writers engage in, also exploring the various components of a good piece of writing - it's good to nail down paragraph and paragraph development. It's the foundation of essay writing.

    Being a writer means one should be socially involved in the happenings around the world. Travel as much as one possibly can whether it is to the front yard or another town, meet and speak to people from different stages of life with different perspectives about various situations. These are some ways that will help one to build his or her foundation on what could be written. And most importantly, a writer could write just about anything.
