How to Write….The Basics
Ever wanted to write something but didn’t know how or where to start? Sometimes we simply want to write a letter to someone, or perhaps simply jot down things in a diary. Maybe you want to write a blog, or a book, but simply feel lost. Well, although I do not proclaim to be an expert and am only co-authoring my first book now, I want you to know that it can be simple. It can be easy. There are some necessary steps though….
1) You must want to write.
2) Give yourself a set time each day that you are going to write. Don’t look at the entire task as a whole, but rather look at it in pieces and start with a timed piece daily. If you go beyond the time, that’s ok, but try to write for at least the time you set out to write for.
3) Simply write what comes to your mind. Don’t worry about order, or verbage, or dates, etc…. Simply write what you feel…even if it doesn’t make sense right now, it will. Once you start and things keep coming and coming, suddenly you will have a path in which you are taking and things you wrote the first day may end up last, etc… you will get your feel for it.
4) Don’t get discouraged and keep on track.
Anything you set your mind to, you will achieve….Believe in yourself. When in doubt, ask your Hero Within for help, not only will it be there, you will succeed! Happy writing 🙂

I think point 2 is excellent advice. The best thing for every writer to do is establish a routine: decide how many words they want to, how long they want to write for, etc. Everyone is different, with different experiences and goals and writings styles, so what’s most important is for writers to establish a routine that works for them.
