Growing up I had the privilege of visiting my grandma a couple of times. During that time, if there’s anything I always look forward to on the way to see her it is her endless tales. Their themes limitless (some could even transcend into another and another like the trilogies we read today). She always had a story to tell and I can remember enjoying every one of them.
Writers write. It is the only way through which we birth pieces. The thing is for most writers, the development cycle is so slow and although it is not a very bad thing what harm is there in developing fast? The thing is to develop in the craft of writing like any other craft requires practice; consistent practice. To this end it is very important for the budding writer to write regularly.
There is myth that parades most writers’ minds. It’s even more common among aspiring and amateur writers. This myth is that s/he must produce excellent work every time. That real writers always churn out awesome pieces.
It is true that your usefulness is as much as what you know and can do.
That your worth defines how you are valued.
Are we doing justice to ideas?
A couple of weeks ago I told you how to concentrate on writing one thing at a time. That was preceded by a post on where I go to get inspired to write. Each of these topics had to do with the primary thing in writing – ideas. Without them there’d be nothing to write or talk about. Ideas are the crux of writing, the nucleus.
Last week I’ve wrote about where I go to get inspired to write. However, I’ve come to know that aside such moments when we lack inspiration, there is also another big problem many writers face daily. This is the problem of deciding what to write.
Often times we have more than one thing for which we are itching to write. We have two or more ideas waiting to be penned down.
5 places I go to get inspired to write
There are days when as writers we feel uninspired to write.
On such days no articles are produced, no stories birthed and the writers’ world is in a standstill. Zero productivity. Constant drifting.
To solve this problem, there are places where I go to get fresh inspiration to write and that is what I write about in this post.
Whether you’re just starting out or have been writing for a long time, there are always days when you want to do anything but writing. On such days you feel like beating yourself up. Writing productivity is lost and the creative muscles are dulled (at least for that moment). Well, I am an avid fan of staying productive (churn out great pieces) and such days are always nightmares. I feel awful on them.
This is a subject of plenty debates among writers. Today I’d take my side.
Most writers take writing a very complicated process. They believe you need to sound and look serious when writing else your work wouldn’t be good enough.
While it is true that how you present your pieces determines how you are viewed, does it mean you must be formal?
In that post I promised to come up with a list of great apps to help you in scheduling. They are mostly called calendar apps or simply to-do list apps.
The’s something about achieving any task, succeeding over any hurdle or beating any Target. As long as you don’t do it – it doesn’t get done. It remains just another item on your task list.
It is true that for many people there’s nothing more daunting than starting out at a task.
It’s spoken about frequently whenever writers meet.
You’ve heard of it or might’ve even experienced it.
Some believe it’s not real but just a creation of lazy writers.
Others claim it happens; that it comes and sucks up their zeal leaving them practically word-less and to some extent with no idea!
I know you’ve heard a lot about note taking. It’s in your Secondary or high school and college or university curriculum, it is been spoken about in different writers’ interactions. But please hear me out.
I’ve not always been a fan of writing on the go. I prefer sitting down fully concentrating on the piece am writing but guess what I found out of recent?
