Five Writing Tips For Aspiring Writers/Bloggers

Sunday, August 16, 2015


Hey, you there. Can we speak? Writer to writer---just for a moment. Writing is one of the most fragile forms of  art---a talent to create a universe with a scribble of ink, tell the stories of the stars, or share the tale of your soul---but more often than not us writers tend to get lost whether it be lack of inspiration or direction---but the path you wish to find may be right under your nose, dear writer. Here are some of my tips whether you are a beginner or J.K. Rowling herself these little tips will be sure to help~


FIND INSPIRATION
To write---you must LIVE! Embrace it---in fact grab life by the throat and steal its breath away. Gaze up at the falling stars, look into a stranger's soul, state at a blank page and dare to see something different! A writer doesn't live one life---but thousands and honey I can promise none of those lives were luke warm. Find that passion and let it BURN! Don't fall into the trap of the ordinary---there is an adventure in everything and I mean EVERYTHING! You just have to look a little harder to find it.
FIND YOUR WRITING ZONE
Whether this be a cluttered desk, a bustling cafe, or maybe just you sprawled on top of your bed. Every writer has one. It can be dead silent, it can be loud, but most of all it's YOU. Mine in fact changes all the time. Sometimes it's just me, my room, and the universe of my thoughts. Sometimes just taking a little step outside makes me feel like I've breathed in the cloud's daydreams. Everyone is different! If you're having trouble finding a happy medium between having it too quiet and background music is just too distracting---try Coffitivity. It will transport you straight to Starbucks or a cozy library full of scholars!
DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP
Okay, let me repeat myself just in case you didn't hear me. DON'T. BEAT. YOURSELF. UP. Your writing won't improve with all that negative thinking and neither will you! We all drive into an occasional dry patch---but guess what?! The worst of droughts when over bloom the most beautiful flowers. In the mean time watch a movie that makes you grip on to the nearest object in anticipation, read a book that transports you to another world, maybe even start a new adventure! So stop with all the negative thinking missy/mister---choose to dream instead.
EMBRACE YOUR WRITING STYLE
Each and every writer has a unique and individual style. You don't need to know a writer's name---just read their words and you hear their VOICE! Stop trying to copy your favorite artist---you're doing yourself a real disservice. FIND YOUR VOICE--you might just be surprised of what you hear.
WRITE!!!
This may sound like the easiest tip, but in fact it is the most difficult. So you have the dream to wirte? The universe of thoughts in your head feels so ALIVE you swear it's real? You have something in your heart you want to share with the world? Pick up your pen and WRITE---write until your soul is bleeding on that very page---until you swear you can hear it screaming. I don't care how bad you want to crumble that paper into the trash or that you just feel like the right words won't come to you. For the love of God write anyway---whatever you do don't let that idea die!

Good luck~

  8. Thank you so much for the tips! It's really hard to write in English as it's not my first language, but nobody would understand my language, so I don' really have much choice. I love your blog design as well, did you make it yourself? :) xxxx

    1. It will get easier and easier trust me! I don't have this problem in English, but I've been trying to learn how to write in my parents language for years and I know it's such a challenge! Why thank you, doll~ I wish I had the skill, but sadly no I am not that talented. If you're interested in a similar design Mlekoshiplayground has beautiful work!
