A Vent On Writing

Most people who want to write do not have the necessary skills to write an article that would make an impact statement. I should have had some kind of experience writing other than a few college courses of english before thinking I could write. Forget all those books I read, cause when push comes to shove I don't have a degree in anything. Just a few classes in college. I didn't get a degree or certificate either.

Optimism

Going into something that you can do when you don't have many skills is usually very optimistic of people. I can put down words on a page and therefore I am a writer. I can write but that doesn't necessarily mean I am a writer.

Crossing Your T's And Dotting Your I's

I have noticed that just because I write about my feelings, I rarely if at any time get it right. Is it just me or do all people go through this? Rejection is sometimes hard to take if you get too many rejections. I know it is that way for me. Once I wrote several chapters in a book, thinking I have all these ideas for books and then realizing that putting your thoughts on paper is a lot different than having all these ideas in your head. The Chapters were stale because I neglected to bring life into them.

Talent Or No Talent

Certain people have the gift of putting down on paper every thing that is needed to make a story come alive. I am not one of those individuals. Basic statements and an inadequate supply of descriptive words is all i have. Nix that thought in the bud. If you are any kind of person who knows how to read a good book or article, then you will eventually realize that you just can't cut the mustard so to speak.

The Long And The Short of Writing

Basic writing must begin with an impact statement, to rival Sherlock Holmes. The body must consist of all relevant matter and if you can squeeze in a few adjectives then you are doing great. That doesn't mean you can write. Just that you have the ability to put down a few sentences.

Study Your Subject

Before starting a writing project, at least go and find out what you are writing down. I tell you i go looking up words to make sure they will fit into a sentence. Bring your words to life by putting your zest into it.

What To Do When Writing

Find what you love to do, then put 100% of your thoughts into it. Don't use someone else's thoughts or words. Just be Yourself and write yourself into it. I can't write because I am stodgy and plain. So I write about health matters. To me this is interesting. Finding out the odd little fact is interesting. I guess to each one his/her own. Now I find faith and worship interesting. I write about those but it seems like i can't completely get my feelings down on the page that i feel in my heart. Some can and some can't. I am one that can't.
