All Aspiring Writers need to understand that to be a Writer, you need to go beyond aspiring, but how exactly do you do that?
Read my open letter to all Aspiring Writers to find out.
Dear Aspiring Writer,
I know you’d love to write; churn out great masterpieces, see your works in the papers and magazines, or perhaps publish your own books.
I know because:
Writing is the best way to find the kind of expression everyone needs.
I’ve been there, yes, there were days when I wished I could also write words that others would read.
And for the longest time that thought remained what it was – a mere wish; never coming to fruition.
But then things changed when I realised that:
As long as I continued wishing, aspiring and hoping to be a writer that was all I’d ever be – An Aspiring Writer.
And that to beat it I must ditch my wishbone for action. I must actually write.
This I’ve found isn’t only true for me, alone, but for every other writer out there.
To really be a writer you must write.
Ernest Hemingway says it best:
“Anyone who says he wants to be a writer and isn’t writing doesn’t.”
You can’t continue aspiring forever.
You must start writing.
Yes, you can!
P. S. Remember to:
“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” – Louis L’amour
