What Writing Involves

Updated on January 5, 2018
DDE profile image

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Writing is a pleasure and can be taken seriously

Write your best to reach an audience

I discovered many new elements about writing and have focused on what makes it simple and noticed.

In free time spent writing and sharing most of my work online, I learned from many mistakes.

The older one gets the wiser one becomes in writing and in other aspects of life as I have along the way.

To improve one’s thoughts, and to fully acknowledge a learning experience of which many of you do enjoy.

Reading and lots of reading is required.

To start writing a book, or an article you should plan wisely, and if you are thinking of a great idea you must go for it.

Try to think of how other authors got to their story. In the same way you can find your way in writing your story. If you read about similar topics that too can help you improve on your ideas.

  • Risks; writing involves risks; take a chance on writing to make your platform a steady one.

Writing brings you back to life when you feel you can't do it anymore, or that your soul is disappearing.

An uplifted mind opens up.

Gradually you hear yourself again to start all over, or to finish up what you have started.

Most writers are affected by working online, if you want to work on your computer unplug from the Internet, it causes lots of distractions.

Control yourself in all aspects and show discipline when writing.

In the process you can improve your writing skills.

  • Is it a good time to be a writer?

Sometimes it feels like it is not a good time looking at how many free downloads of books are being read.

You too can do the same, write something of interest to online readers, and allow them to download your work.

It may be for free or to buy, still, you can write and be read.

My writing developed into a routine, a time when I choose to write for me, and for an audience.

Approach a topic as a stranger, or by just being drawn to a topic like a magnet is to a fridge door. I feel excitement when I start on a new topic.

I like surprising my readers, and off-course myself too.

  • It Works for me!

Try help aspiring writers to share and comment on their work. it can make you feel proud about helping other writers.

The most important tip for all writers is keep on writing never give up!

  • Routine is the key to writing.

A serious writer should explore all avenues of writing, and genres.

You must forget about what is around you, think of what you got to do, write, and to make sure to complete that task.

If you think about what you have to do for the day while trying to write an article, you won't get to the writing process in peace.

Words flow easily from a speaker and from a pen if you are a writer.

Be true to yourself, just any form of art shows originality from your soul.

A well-posted blog adds to your great profile, makes you popular mainly if you have quality content.

Practice makes Perfection, so if you keep on writing you will find worth in what you are doing.

Good writers write about what comes to them unexpectedly. They don't have to search for a topic, it happens naturally.

A kind of connection which grows on you, an urge to write and you continue to write.

  • What gets you motivated?

You got to study excellently to be inspired by creating better phrases. Get into writing the useful way.

It is more effective if you have a writing skill. If you like looking in a secret door as if your would when opening a book with that curious mind. So, you should write and make something of your own.

How you plan to use the twenty four hours is entirely your choice.

Everyone can write a good story, but sometimes the story told is not put into the right context.

Learn from mistakes, the important learning tool.

If you want to read a book, and can’t find the title you are looking for then write about it.

You don't have to follow every single piece of advice that you come across, if you don't agree with it.

A part of writing is to find your very own voice, and method, going with the flow is not always necessary.

My writing is about sitting down to write something daily, and for other writers. If writers don't have an idea of what to write, then don't write.

Don't care about what people think, the only point you should be focused on, is how long it took you to get there.

Writing daily does make a difference in making you the better writer.

A true writer doesn't bother about results, the time it took them to write something in a single day is what should matter most.

Just write, open up and let the words flow out, like breathing, no effort put into it. The moment you start up on a project, you begin to strengthen and change, to breath freely.

You can entertain yourself with your imagination while you wait on ideas. Write your own version of a sequel.

If you have deadlines you can give it a go.

  • What do you think writing is all about?

The right amount of concentration and some day dreaming, a kind of mode when you are tuned in, and the thoughts you have are allowed to flow actively.

Remember, good writing comes from organic thoughts

Ideas come to mind at the most odd moments, and you think remembering these thoughts is possible.

A few minutes later it all passes by, the best is to jot down immediately what comes to mind. Most writers don't wait for those moments they just write.

If you force yourself to write the very first page, writing the last page will be discouraging for you.

Writers are the profession of their own art, and of their total surroundings.

The few rules that apply to the many forms of writing all comes down to writing about one's experiences. If you write from the heart that is true originality.

Your writing may be good, or bad to you, though not to everyone else.

Having a muse to be your best critic is a great idea.

Shape up what you want to write about and then go back to edit.

A useful idea, if you have something good to write about then go ahead and write about it.

Write what you can is also a good start.

  • Do you start at the beginning when you write?

Start with what you know and then go along filling in the blanks. A part of the story that comes to mind can be written down in bits and pieces. It all makes sense in due time.

Never over think what you writing about, eventually fine tune your thoughts.

Pick up new ways for example, if you see a writing you like, analyze it; ask yourself why do you like it?

The verbs are punchy, and sentences are short. A certain technique of another writer can boost your thoughts into experimenting with the specific way of writing.

  • Don't let anything stop you from writing!

Save your good points to write at another time.

Absorb information like a sponge absorbs water.

  • What is writing?

Writing is like when you try to get about your way, as you drive through a clouded park, having your headlights on in making your way through this patch of cloud.

Most Writers feel their way through a misty or cloudy patch.

Simple and impact tips for most writers to think about.

You should write if you enjoy it, avoid writing because others are into writing online.

Never let others corrupt what you have created, this can happen easily if you are a beginner.

All advice in writing is different for each writer, taken in a different way, approached, and applied in their own ways.

Don't stop writing if you have already planned your next step, it could make you feel most disappointed.

Something special, like your favorite gemstone, you will always have that gem, even if you are not in your place of birth. Write about it.

Beginners need to know this and more about the writing world, challenges can put off many amateurs.

I know what it felt like when I first started writing.

There is often the gap that is not filled. In the beginning you make up stuff and it takes time to get to the successful point in writing.

The many disappoints along the way could make you feel down, but things start to pick up the moment you see good results.

Encouraging words makes writers move on to better writing.

If you believe in writing you would see good feedback, never stop believing in yourself.

  • Never overlook writing discussions

Most writers have the courage to write badly, it is one of the biggest problems experienced.

Writing doesn't only allow communication it also generates ideas.

One can learn of the mechanics of writing, and keep on practicing. The main element to perfect writing is epochal life experiences to gain your work from.

Most writers don't want to be popular; often the best writers aren't the most popular writers.

True writing comes from your inner-self something that comes out uncontrollably, instead of forcing it out of you.

You should lose your fear of being wrong, don't think of how right or wrong you are when writing.

  • Why do people want to know how to become a writer?

If you want to be a writer, write and explore different aspects of the writing field.

Sit down and get on with it.

You can write and write until your first good accomplishment.

First drafts are always not the best of drafts.

  • Would you be a writer if you don't write?


Writing requires action, not only about planning and thinking.

It makes perfect sense, and helps one to learn more about writing successfully.

Writing tips for any writer, but for beginners most these tips are most helpful.

      Excellent article and advice! I love the pictures you use in your Hubs DDE. Routine is definitely an important key to writing. I find if I stop writing for a day or two, it tends to wean itself out of my schedule. The first week I joined, I wrote something and didn't come back from 2 weeks. That was a big mistake. It was like starting over again when I wrote my second hub.

      Hi Devika

      Great article and advice for any writer. As I'm not a writer I got confused but that's a normal daily activity for me and nothing to do with this fabulous hub, LOL.

      I like the substance if your Hub - writing is a commitment to ourselves, and some writing should be undertaken every day. It is no different to training for any sport or talent such as singing. The great thing is, there is always room for improvement and learning.

      Hi Devika, like the man said, write as if your life depends on it. We must be fully committed or there is not much point.

      Well done, voting up.

      Interesting points to consider for a would-be writer and even for someone who is a writer but who is having doubts.....write like your tail feathers are on fire. :)

      Have a great Sunday my friend.

      well done and so true...writing is discipline. I am working on a book and content for web and blog. I find that I work on each one everyday. Just rough writing and go back later and tweak and improve. If your mind is on overload as you say, the writing process does not work. Well done and sharing around.
