Can You Also Write?
“Are you kidding me? Hell yeah” this the kind of response you need to give when you are asked this kind of question.
Writers are not born, they are manually made, which means anyone who has the deep desire to spread a certain message using creative techniques is more than welcome to do so.
Like any other profession, writing requires hard work, dedication, time and a lot of research.
I don't think copying someone’s style of writing is even open for discussion, let alone be considered.
Try by all means to craft your own style of writing, remember, all writers come from all walks of life.
Your unique style of writing can differ a mile from the style of the great Mr Ezekiel Mphahlele but the fact remains that your unique style will also build its default audience along the way.
Lets take a look at what writing requires in more details-:
- Hard work
This really goes without saying. I mean can you name one, just one profession where hard work is not needed? Come on, stop over working your brain, you know there's none. So when it comes to writing, hard work is that one obstacle you will have to concur, whether you like it or not . It is a compulsory effort that upgrades your writing skills and makes you stick to your writing schedule, which is also of highest importance in the writing journey.
Sticking to your writing schedule for a period of 3 months and fighting writers block on the other side is hard work according to me. I don't know what you want to call it but to me, that is tremendous work .
You know what they say right? Hard work and dedication can make one a king. Ell this saying is true because with hard work and dedication met, success is guaranteed and a few steps away .
Being dedicated gives one that desire to see their work out there, making a difference and saving lives, or even for a mere fact of entertaining, that is what writing is about and I believe that it is also each and every writers dream.
So if you dedicate yourself into your writing, not only your writing will improve, but it will also stand out to its nearest competitors.
In order to succeed with your writing career, making time to write is Paramount. The only obstacle you will have to overcome is writers block.
Make a simple writing schedule and follow it no matter what. Every writer suffers from writers block, don't be flattered, there’s a time where you stare at your computer or notepad but find it very difficult to even write a single paragraph, all writers go through that. But if there’s a schedule in place, things tend to be a lot easier and words will eventually come, combined with your creativity therefore your writing will be much easier and enjoyable to do.
Remember that writing requires a lot of research, you don't wanna find yourself in a lawsuit because you published the same exact story as mine, for example.
