Success or failure is not in your hand, that’s destiny or whatever you like to call it.
Talking to Yourself
Now this does not mean that you are crazy and just blabber to yourself all the time. That’s not what I meant.
When you read a piece of writing or when you hear a story, do you start silently voicing your opinions, thoughts and arguments on the storyline? This is your inner talent that is attempting to express itself.
Allow it the chance to express itself satisfactory through creative writing. You are waiting to voice these thoughts on several issues, but find no outlet.
That’s a surefire sign that you are truly meant to be a writer, so what are you waiting for.
When you read a story and relate it to someone, do you add those slight embellishments to make the story more attractive and interesting? That’s the writer in you trying to add some original thoughts to a tale.
You secretly desire to relate your ideas to others and take the opportunity of adding it to stories that you relate.
That’s an indirect way of communicating your creativity, so why not do it the direct way? Write your own story or create your own article, so that you can fulfill your dreams of being a writer in the true sense of the word.
Has anyone every called you a word freak or a word nerd? If you want to write, do not be ashamed to accept it. You are a word freak or a word nerd, because you are fascinated by the world of words.
Using words in a magical and creative way is probably all that you ever want to do in life. That’s exactly what a good writer would like to do, play with words, use them creatively to attract readers and keep them riveted to the text.
If you have been called a word freak, that’s the last nail in the coffin and you can take my word for it, you are born to be a brilliant writer.
No More Waiting
The written signs are all on the wall. You have a dream and you’ve got to pursue it right now. There’s nothing like the present. So, get to it now and start writing!!
