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.
It true that: having a good reason for doing something is a forward propelling factor.
This is true for writing as it is for everything else.
Thus, Writers write.
But why do they write?
In order to be a writer, you must write.
This can be achieved through the maintenance of epic creativity and inspiration levels which in turn are fuelled by motivation. Continue reading
Everywhere around the world people are creating.
Their methods and expressions vary just as their products do. From the carpenters to the writers and the singers, people are using various creative expressions to create.
Creativity showers different benefits on its practitioners. Indeed, everywhere you go you find people who are using their creative muscles to come up with life solutions.
Every Writer must understand that humans respond to and connect with acts of humanity. We are responsive beings. This is something that successful writers understand and do that others do not.
Growing up I had the privilege of visiting my grandma a couple of times. During that time, if there’s anything I always look forward to on the way to see her it is her endless tales.

Are we doing justice to ideas?
A couple of weeks ago I told you how to concentrate on writing one thing at a time. That was preceded by a post on where I go to get inspired to write. Each of these topics had to do with the primary thing in writing – ideas. Without them there’d be nothing to write or talk about. Ideas are the crux of writing, the nucleus.
Last week I’ve wrote about where I go to get inspired to write. However, I’ve come to know that aside such moments when we lack inspiration, there is also another big problem many writers face daily. This is the problem of deciding what to write.
Often times we have more than one thing for which we are itching to write. We have two or more ideas waiting to be penned down.
