Write as much as you can
As we all know that nowadays all of us are quite involved with our everyday tasks. A student gives all his time to his study, an employer expends his time in his work. Everyone is busy, fulfilling their obligations. We can not give too much time to our skills. But if we are much passionate about something, we always find time to do that mission. Writing is a skill where we need to practice every single day. No matter where we are, and how busy we are, whatever we do we must take some time to fill those white pages of our diary. We need to make our diary and pen our best companions whom we keep close to us in every possibility. So even if we write for a few minutes but never skip writing.
Make reading your Hobby
“Before you become a writeryou must first become a reader.”This line is not unusualto us. We have heard a lot of times by everywriter, that every writer takes birth after becoming a reader.So we need to make reading our vocation, our way ofamusement, or source of information or whatever we can make, but we should always keep in touch with reading. It helps us to perceive the writing style of otherwriters, their vocabulary, and their understandingofthe world of writing.
Capture your surroundings
One of the main difficultiesthat we face while writing is “what to write about?” this is a problem that almost every writer faces at one time or another. Sometimes it happens that our mind gets block and we can’t find any accurate idea to write. And then being frustrated we give up writing. But the truth is that the topics are hidden in our surroundings and we just need to recognise them. We can grab any person or thing around us in our attention and write on it, even our daily routine can also be kept in our diary. There are innumerable topics around us,just we should have the spirit to write.
Make your vocabulary impressive, not complicated
We have seen many writers who use very complex words tomake their writing unique. Sometimes readers also find it difficult to understand their writing. Then what is the intention of writing such an article which is beyond the knowledge of the readers?We should write in such a way that the writers find it elegant and easy to understand.
Have patience and keep working
Most of the people give up writing just because they want to accomplish a big milestone in no time, which is almost unthinkable. It takes time to comprehend any skill. The procedure of becoming an eminent writer from an ordinary man is an extremely long one. Like all other work, there are many obstacles to be faced in the field of writing, and we can not become a good writer unless we face all these problems with proper restraint.
Hence, by following the above tips, perhaps we may become the next creative writing contest winner and buck up our writing future. Isn’t it such a lenient and amusing way to give a flight to ourdream of becoming a writer?
