Lets Write Blogs

Updated on August 28, 2019

Shirley, a long time writer retired decided to keep on writing. It is impossible to shut down one's mind with so many thoughts so she writes

Let's Write

Let’s write my parents were my words from the get-go! It seems that before I could even read, I had my mother writing down my thoughts. All through my life my desire was to write. Today I have my own Content Writing Company known as “Writer Shirley’s World”. In this I can help those of you who have the desire to write down your thoughts and ideas. We have many poets, story tellers, and muses who like to write but are afraid to get started. I am here to help each, and everyone write their thoughts and see their work in print.

Often I have been ask what is the first thing that I wrote that I was so proud to see in print. My response was to ask them to write their first name in big letters. After they do I then remind them when they were in school and learn how to print their name were they not proud? Did you not run and show a parent someone you loved? I am just like you when I learn to print my name that was my first thing and foremost that I was so proud to have done.

The Process Begins

Our mind is a precious tool when it comes to writing material. The first thing is our thoughts, the thoughts go to paper (computer) and then the ability to process it into a legitimist piece of works is where most of us have our problems.

  • Mind into thoughts the lead to all good writers.
  • Expression of these thoughts to paper or a computer is next important part of our writing.
  • Then the ability to organize and get our works into an outline where our writing can be formatted into book or other types of reports.

One of the most important things is to be able to find someone who will support you in your endeavors. As in the past so is it today where often the one’s we love are the one’s who let us down.

Support and Recognition

The hard part about being a writer is to get off the launch pad one might say. “Let’s Write” my slogan has helped me many times. When it seems, I can’t get work, or I am being chastised for wasting my time I simply go into my special place. There I say to myself “Let’s Writer” with pencil in hand or my laptop across my bed then I go creative. But I must admit when I have turned out a special piece or get kudos for my writing it does make it all worthwhile. Sometimes I find that perhaps it is not always wise to share my failures as much as my successes.

When you have the support of the one who is close to you writing flows better. The receipt of recognition for an article or book makes it even much better. Nothing in the world like creating a masterpiece if it is art, music or writing. The writer in this time of history is at the bottom in comparison. While the internet makes it easier to get writing assignments or publish your book. Society is overrun with would be writers and those who are genuinely creative. Don’t let that discourage you instead –“Write On”!

Let's Read

Let’s Read! One of the best pieces of advice that I can give you. A writer just writes! A good writer proofs their works! A great writer reads, proofs but also reads what others write. How can you express a good piece of paper if you are not aware of other opinions and knowledge on a subject? I read multiple magazines and newspapers to find out about subject. I use google to research and read what others think. Then I evaluate what I have read but also what is being said on news stations. Then I write!

How to Read

When you are reading about a news article be open minded. Do not start with an already formed opinion. Then it is useless to read because you will not draw in the necessary knowledge to write an open honest review. We are busy every day with so many things on our plate but to be a great writer we need to read as much as possible. Excuse me did I tell you that in order to be a good writer read your own stuff. To be a great writer read the materials that others have written. Reading is vital in order to write.

What to Read

The purpose behind reading is to focus in on what your interests are and what you are writing about. If you are writing about climate change then don’t read about the next flight to the moon. While you are doing your research, many interesting topics will appear but bypass them and do the read you need. It is astonishing how much time you waste reading off shoot articles that do not pertain to your project. The common excuse there this is material that will help me write a new article. In truth, you may never write about that information.

Summary

Let’s Read! Is the main part of a great writer’s ability to be great! You need to read daily on the topics and subjects that interest you and that you will be writing about. You need to do research and read the works of others to formulate an opinion that is not bias but truth worthy. A great writer is not narrow minded. A great writer has a large spectrum of knowledge to help form opinions and relate information in direct response to the needs of the public. First become an avid reader then try your hand at writing.
