Writer’s Wisdom – first of a series

After sitting down for hours, drinking coffee and watching best seller authors on You Tube, and many others being interviewed, I was able to compile their best advice for aspiring writers.  Although, these writers have many different writing styles, they all seem to converge on some important basic points that I intend to share with you.  So, let’s see what they had to say.

The recommendation that they all seem to stress as most important was:  Write, write, write.

The advice is to write every day.  It doesn’t matter if you stare at a blank screen (or page), for a few minutes (or hours), just sit down and start writing whatever thoughts cross your mind.  If you are writing a book, write something everyday; no matter if it is for a few minutes, just write.  As long as you start hitting the keyboard or scratching the paper, something will come out.  Ideas come an go, maybe some of them for another book, or another article.  At its worst, there will be plenty of material to ponder over.

Follow me tomorrow for more of their tips.  Happy Writing !

  1. This is excellent advice. I could not agree more. If a person says he or she is a writer, this is the test. To be a writer means writing is a priority. There is no way of getting around this.

  2. I find the technique of, writing fast anything that comes to mind, then looking at it, is a good icebreaker. It provides with fuel to write.

  3. I’ve often, very often, written a poem and thought” Where did that come from”?? Poetry seems to come to me quickly like it’s coming through me or to me not from me..and i have found that once i get a poem in my head, it won’t let me alone untill i write it down. like it has a soul of its own. I have tried to ignore them but they won’t let me alone untill i put them on paper. sounds weird but it’s true.

  4. You are a true poet my friend, the gates of inspiration are open, and you must drink their sweet waters.

  5. Thank you for your kind words, Poetry won’t make me a living,(I’m stuck as a nurses aide for that.). but for sure “Poet” will be on my tombstone, as i’ve rhymed little stories, ( so my parents and grandparents told me) since before i could read or write, My family suppored me for years but seem to run now when i mention “listen to this”…..But without blogs like you have, teaching us, giving us faith and hope, guiding us. We “Un-known,living poets” would just hide our poems in boxes under our beds. thanks for being there and willing to teach others..I feel the world needs to take notice of living writers of our time..but so it goes.
    I added a link to my blog roll so other may find you as i did…
