An Open Letter all Aspiring Writers Should Read 

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.

Aspiring Writers

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. 

Somewhere, somehow. 

Yes, you can! 

Yours truly, 


P. S. Remember to:

Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” – Louis L’amour

      Thanks for the nice words. Indeed, Action must follow intention before opportunities can become realities.
