How To Be The Better Writer

I learned about making sheep's wool during my stay in South Africa. An interesting process to oversee.

Writing Makes Me Feel Great

Write for yourself or an Audience

  • Write and write earn and earn, has writing online changed your life in any way?

I am writing for several years and still going on writing daily and try to focus on my work.

Writing is my pleasure. My life has changed in many ways, and I found writing to be my best pass time.

Writing came to my rescue each time I felt sad, or missed my family.

I would wrote down how I felt and that made a difference in my life, then and now.

I write what I feel and make my day free of negative thoughts.

  • What does Writing do for you?

If you write from the heart your work will be recognized by many readers.

Don't fool yourself and write what you are a stranger to that won't be of much help to you.

The key to better writing is from your own experiences.

Be heard and do it with a complete mind.

Write with an open mind, say words aloud before writing it down, if you don't say the words aloud then don't think of writing it down.

When you read the words aloud you see the actual truth in what you are writing about. This is what makes you the better writer.

You can change your words in writing all the time.

Be exciting in your words. Share what makes you happy.

What you need from your reader is the attention, and the constant forward motion. You don't want a reader to escape your work.

Indicate your words clearly and in the most understandable way.

  • Would you quit your day job and write full time?

If you want to succeed on any career the idea would be to give the option all your attention. Writing, however, is a bit more challenged.

Giving up your day job will take lots more thinking to go that far in your life. You can't win on everything. Though certain chances can be taken to experiment on, if you are financially secure go for it!

It depends on what you do for a living. Self-employed in many cases is a great idea.

If you have gained your steady platform which in my opinion will require patience then writing can be a great opportunity.

You can give it a careful thought but it is a difficult decision indeed. Working your hardest for yourself or someone is a difference in the work place.

  • Do you think full time writing can be successful?

Nothing is guaranteed in the writing field views drop and your earnings in the process drops too.

  • Where would that leave you if you totally depended on writing to earn a substantial income?

You got to know what you are getting yourself into before you give up that day job.

Everybody has a different situation and people do things differently.

Writing clears the mind of an individual and can earn you a decent income every month.

That may not be enough to pay your bills unless you are the gifted writer who wrote many bestsellers.

As a beginner you can become overwhelmed about what to write about for the first time.

Also, don't forget your work must be of a specific standard.

  • Are you prepared for he long waiting game?

To stick with writing through all times, the good times and the bad times to go over the many hurdles. Fall, trip over and get up and to start all over again is a great challenge in the writing field.

A commitment you make and got to stick by it.

Sometimes certain events in life hold you back from writing and can take a bad turn to yourself.

There is nothing you can do to change that or make things like it was but go on writing and be realistic in your work.

The main issue is to keep on writing never stop or give up on what you want to do or on what you enjoy best.

Writing can make one feel lonely spending lots of time alone time and contact with others can be far-fetched.

Usually the daily schedule is about you and nobody else.

Then again, you should know what you are getting yourself into before you decide to give it a try.

If you choose to be alone that is different from being alone with no option.

You are working solo, and can become isolated over time.

Join a book club or a local writing club to avoid the lonely life that is if you feel lonely or kept away from the rest of world.

  • Do you have the Discipline to work independently?

  • Being your own boss sounds so convenient and who wouldn't want to be their own boss?

If you want to be your own boss you can be faced with many responsibilities and this you have to do on your own.

The many obstacles you over come can make you feel stressed out during certain occasions.

You need a supportive family, and friends to help you along with your challenges. To consider what you want to do, and to work things out for you be adventurous.

There is far too much at stake here. Your finances won't be met, and what you are really seeking for won't just fall on your lap from the petty earnings.

An individual must plan for the worst and work for the best.

Avoid thinking of failure focus on success.

Make what you are working for your priority to succeed if you think that way another option won't be required.

A full time job will quickly become a part of what makes you who you are in life as an adult.

The correct path chosen will show you the person you are turning into the one you always wanted to be.

It can be difficult but is imperative for your future happiness. A task that could be tough and most complicated only if you let it be.

The key to succeed is to ask the right questions about yourself and work out your decisions from the answers chosen.

Having someone who understands you and knows what what you want from life is crucial to your communication and life itself.

Writing online doesn't work out for everyone.

The choices you make relies on your though

You can also consider whether or not there is a transitional position for you between a full time job and full time writing.

A benefit for taking care of children, one partner can have the full time job the one that helps provide for the rest of he family. While you can write and earn for yourself and still take care of chores around the home.

I gave up my seasonal job to write and work from home. I write daily and have been for six years in which time I researched everything I needed to know about writing and publishing. I have earned substantially.

I cashed in a few cheques, from my kindle reads and from Hubpages. Also, from several other websites but that took a while to come to me.

My hard work did pay off and still is showing me more than I expected from writing online.

I am a tour guide in the summer, self-employed, so really speaking I am not totally dependent on my earnings from writing.

However, writing for me has worked out well and I wish all hubbers the best in their writing and earnings.

It is tough but if you are patient all can work out in the end.

You got to choose a worthy writing site the one with a good community. The kind that doesn't let you down when it comes to payment.

Find what makes you look forward to each day. To write and be heard.

A site like Hub pages is just perfect for many on line writers who are willing to start over.

Take the plunge into writing if you know it is what you seriously want to do.

It can be a goal to write for yourself and get your audience with the daily communication.

Never feel left out and don't stop dreaming of what you want from life.

As a beginner you can feel down if nothing works out your away. In time not only will you learn the ups and downs about writing but also about yourself.

Some people take risks and are brave enough to quit their day jobs this all depends on their responsibilities.

Don't do what others do it, do what you want to and choose to. Life is not about others it is about you.

Be prepared for what lies ahead, be enthusiastic, and most of all be devoted to what you write. Give it all you got.

      You definitely know what it takes to be a writer. Your writing tips are quite extensive. I totally agree with what you said about writing from the heart. Since I started writing about the things I know best, writing has become easier. Now, instead of researching to write, I write then research to verify. It's so much better that way.

      Really great points here DDE! When I first signed up for HP, my schedule had slowed down some from the fast pace non-stop race it had become only months before.

      But then I went from being able to write one article a day to writing one article every couple of days recently. And I just found out my son has to have surgery. So, it's very challenging for me. Even though I don't have a job outside of my home that I have to go to every day, I find it very difficult to find exclusive time to sit here and write every day. But that is my goal for some day.

      Great suggestions for improving writing skills. I have written in a number of different types of environments (academia, professional, creative), and each would try to "undo" the positive differences the others had made in my writing. They were each trying to cast me as a version of themselves. I finally now write what I like and am so much happier.
