Writing Online Changed my life

Online Writing

Writing is a gift!

The Internet is a powerful thinker and maker for anyone owning a computer.

Since the existence of the Internet most people can conveniently search and browse for any information.

  • What can I do Online?

I discovered online writing and wrote intensively.

To be a better writer I must be focused on my moods.

When I first started writing, I wrote with a closed mind.

The idea to write clearly and state my purpose of the topic.

Be clean in your words chosen, and concise.

I must write well in understanding myself as a writer.

My goal in writing is to understand my audience.

I must show care in my project.

When I show care in a project the process feels easier.

The approach in writing is in different stages.

i need to think and use moods.

The time of day plays an important role in writing.

Sometimes I feel tired and don't feel the mood in writing.

I try to show a good side and my not so good side in writing.

Some writers need an ideal time to write, while other writers don't need an ideal to write.

As you write daily you will see an improvement in your writing. It does not mean you should ignore difficult tasks. If you ignore the difficult tasks writing will feel harder.

In other words, if a writer tries to get better at writing that won't happen without trying the difficult tasks.

A writer can spend their whole life thinking of becoming the better writer and before you know it your life is gone by you.

  • Why fear writing?

You don't need to waste your life thinking of getting better in writing.

Use your skills each day to improve naturally.

The problem with many writers is the chance to master their skills.

Unfortunately, if you think of mastering your skills in writing before publishing your first article you will not get there.

  • Do you want to prove a point or want an answer from your writing?

To prove a point that is left to lawyers, and mathematicians.

Remember what you write is not to prove your point.

Writing is about getting answers.

  • What do you expect from writing?

Be open in ideas in writing.

Readers need answers.

  • Are you writing for an Audience?

You can write for an audience or a specific audience.

Write for a few people or just anyone.

The idea is to be focused on that chosen topic.

  • What is important to your audience?

  • What an audience cares about?

Ideas for your audience.

  • How much do they know?

You voice in writing is important to an audience.

Authority in writing is not the main focus here.

Generalizations are not what the reader is looking for in writing.

When you generalize you want your reader to think you know it all.

You don't know everything!

In writing be free to admit what you know or understand. Also, of what you don't care about.

In this way readers trust your information.

Don't put a distance between you and the reader.

Share a certain amount of closeness with your readers.

You need enough time for writing.

Produce quality over quantity.

You need mental energy to move on in writing.

Think carefully of your project that would allow for better writing.

When you begin to write on a specific topic the ideas stay in your head for a few days. The time a writer spends on thinking of a topic that shows a creative mind.

Even when not close to a keyboard the ideas flow freely through your mind.

Everything you do in writing must be enjoyable and a learning lesson for you.

A writer must understand who they are and know of their influences, including how to use their knowledge. To share life experiences and to know how to create their stories.

A voice must be heard in writing.

It is exciting to read of other people's stories.

Be unique with a voice in writing.

Avoid isolation!

Don't be alone and just type away at your keyboard.

Ask for support from not only friends, or family, also of others in the writing community.

Use your greater imagination in writing.

Create your network of people that includes other writers.

I have created my network of peers on Hubpages.

Talk to other people and share your ideas.

Develop a fair understanding between you and grow with a positive mind.

It is important to have people close to you in such moments.

Don't be afraid to risk your writing ideas.

Write in a different language and grow from that experience.

The inexperienced writer and the experienced deserves honesty in reviews.

It doesn't mean a popular writer should get the good reviews while the the unpopular writer receives bad reviews.

I have seen that on many book reviews.

Step away from the keyboard when you feel tired.

A break is good to refresh your thoughts and ideas.

You can use your real life stories in your writing as I have been doing on Hubpages.

Write about what bothers you.

Get in to writing with an open mind and from the heart.

You can use a lake near your home to write about.

When you write from the heart you tell the truth.

The truth when written is a universal message to readers.

Write about a simple adventure.

Be realistic in your writing.

You grow in writing from a low aim to a high aim.

Be honest in writing.

When you share an honest piece of work readers look forward to reading more from you.

You can write better if you put your mind to it.

Don't be jealous of a writer's success.

Be patient and write to succeed.

A writer could succeed after a lot of hard work.

I know how writing came to me and from that I continued sharing my work to readers.

I succeeded from the strong waves to the calmer waves.

I rode the waves with ease.

I continued writing step by step and improved on my skills.

You could write about anything you want to share with readers.

Any title can be a bestseller.

Follow your dreams.

Don't forgive on writing.

You don't have to be yourself in writing.

Writers have different views and a different levels of experiences. All views are not the same. Often you do have a unique story to share with a new approach.

Writing allows you to inspire other writers with greater energy.

  • Can you master the craft of writing?

An opportunity you can use to learn more effectively to improve on your writing.

The enormous experiences are ways for you to show you can do it.

I did not think for once I couldn't do it.

I write in plain language.

A potential writer fears to write.

Such writers are afraid to share their work and lack writing skills in the process.

Audience will grow you just got to go with the flow.

Writing changes people's lives, my life has changed through sharing my experiences.

I shared what changed my life and how my life changed in a foreign country.

When you write and share your ideas you have no idea it will change the lives of others.

Writing is full of surprises.

Life is meaningful and fun when writing is part of what you do.

Writing is a learning experience for most writers.

You don't need to judge others or compare your work with other writers, just do it.

A writer's intentions can surprise any writer.

      swalia Thank you for stopping by. Writing is not everybody's cup of tea. It takes a great mind to continue writing to expect failures then to succeed.

      'Avoid isolation' - This is a very good tip you have shared here. The feedback from others motivates you to write more and also makes you aware of your shortcomings, making you better at the writing.

      I like your courage to just keep going. I often get discouraged. I feel I am at the point when I am good but not good enough. I think I have not really given myself to my writing. I need to put my voice strongly.

      hello Devika, Writing does change your life for sure it can almost become addictive. You writings are always a pleasure to read and so interesting with your unique view on the your chosen subjects. Here on Hub pages , you meet some very interesting people and become part of the 'family'. May there be many other writings we can read and share. My reason for writing is to share my love of nature and her wonderful subjects with any like minded readers. Good luck with your writings in the future.

      always exploring, I don't write for money if I earn a few dollars well, that is a bonus for me. I don't make money a priority in writing. I enjoy what I do and from day one I looked forward to writing something different. Thank you.

      Devika, you always give me something to hang on to. Here it is this time: "You don't need to judge others or compare your work with other writers, just do it." Continue learning and practicing what you learn. Best to you going forward!

      I write because I love it, but not all the time. Sometimes I get burned out reading and writing, I then step away from my laptop and do other things. My greatest joy is writing poetry. I do not write for money.

      Writing is good exercise for the brain and the fingers at the computer keyboard. Writing online has taught me about keywords. Keywords have a practical value online, however it also expands your vocabulary.

      Hi Reynold Jay The IDEA or the CONCEPT that sells isn't that a very interesting part about writing. Sometimes writers don't see the idea and still have good sales. I like your comment always interesting and you give me something more to think about. Thank you very much for stopping by.

      Bill Holland 22 months ago from Olympia, WA

      I always enjoy your thoughts. What have I learned from online writing? I have learned so much, about myself but more importantly about others. It is a fascinating world out there and it is as close as my keypad.

      Reynold Jay 22 months ago from Saginaw, Michigan

      Lots of good questions that many of us go through. Why the heck do we write anything? Beats me? It must serve an inner craving. I love to write and pretty much hate to read! Go figure! HUBS did get me going, like it did for you. The support of others in the same boat is VERY ENCOURAGING for this writer.

      I figure that the quality of writing has little to do with it for those who write to make money. Fifty Shades of Grey sold 30 million copies and the writer barely has a grasp upon the English language. It is the IDEA or CONCEPT that sells.

      Yep--that's my 2 cents in this silly endeavor that we all love.

      Practising and experimenting is important, as you say and you have some valid points here.

      Having confidence in your writing and trying out new things is vital or you don't progress. I like the idea of getting answers rather than telling. It's also really important to get points across clearly.

      Useful tips, Devika!
