lol someone is begging for a writers unending schpeal or a cat fight. What the heck, who am I to disappoint. Dogged endurance.
I think are a lot of important qualities for a writer! But one of the most important is imagination. Without imagination, books would be boring. Another thing that helps is experiences, even if you dont write what really happened you take that funny, sad, serious thing that happened to you and write about it except maybe different! Bloggers especially, I notice, use thier experiences to write about. Authors do too but they take away some details and add other details so that it fits the charachter they are writing about.
Thank you for your question!
In my opinion one of the most important qualities for a writer is to see, to truly see things for what they are. A writer has to see the world as it is, the harshness of it and the beauty, and they have to respect it and be able to write about it.
Knowledge of a written language. It doesn't matter how good the imagination is if you're illiterate.
I reckon the most important "quality" for a writer is take writing seriously as a JOB and keep at it, not just when inspiration strikes, but one day after the other, with a goal and a plan. Just like for any other enterprise.
Imagination is cool, inspiration more so. Try that as a method :-) So-called writers that think imagination will take them places... well, they're in for a big surprise HAHA The more one works, the more one imagines.
And I hope I won't be sorry to have posted this one :-P
Attention, ability to spontaneously express inner feelings, independence, erudition, sense of fascination about what you're doing (I rarely if ever wrote a poem or short story – even article – being either emotionally not involved or not inspired). Add some style on top, and you're done.
Everything of this doesn't appear out of nowhere, still. As I've figured out some of these days, perrenial and painstaking work may as a piece of cake turn one into a recognized genius.
Fatalism's irrelevant – it's not about with what baggage you were born, it's about what you are willing to do to achieve your goal, to realize your dream. Therefore, persistence needs to be counted, too.
As a writer, poet, or playwright you're going to deal with publishing houses, and if you hadn't passed through rejections, that probably means you have never submitted your work, in principle. If you believe in what you're doing – you won't stop writing even if magnifying glass of public attention isn't focused on you.
Observation and awareness: being observant and aware of the surroundings, the world and its infinite beauty and mystery, the beings that inhabit and their quirks and eccentricities, the elegance of life and equally its perceived emptiness. Listening is also important.
The ability to express oneself in understandable and enjoyable language...
a good writer needs lots of things.but i'll tell you my top three. good idea flow and an inspiration and perseverance,which might seem harsh as something needed for a good writer,but it is needed.the biggest is imagination to bring it to life.
The belief in yourself and your writing. Many people think that it is most important to please the readers with a book (fiction, non-fiction, poetry.. whatever) but the most important person to please is the author! If you believe in what you're writing and you believe in your own talent then you will go far.
