11 Tips To Help You Start Your Writing Journey…

What do I need to write my first book? That is the question I am often asked. After researching the topics of leadership and Success, I published over 6 non-fiction books, people figure that I am doing something right. Here I share 11 tips for beginners interested in starting their own Writing Journey

Aspiring Authors Writing Tips

  1. Write. Keep writing.
  2. Read a lot so you understand how others do what they do
  3. Be yourself. Tell the story
  4. It takes a lot of sacrifice so keep going.
  5. Start writing. Just keep writing. Stand at a bus stop, look at a fence and …write. Sit in a cafe, get yourself a drink and write about the next person who walks through the door – not his description… but his life story, his family, his job. Just write
  6. Read the classics and discover why they are rated so highly
  7. If you don’t know what to write or have writers block, use writing prompts to get those creative juices flowing.
  8. Don’t shy away from criticism. Being critiqued doesn’t always feel amazing, but it always makes you a better writer. Every time someone tells you what they think of your manuscript, you get closer to an objective understand of your work, which is invaluable
  9. Don’t worry about perfection when you are writing your first draft. Good writing is re-writing
  10. Believe in yourself.
  11. Never give up.

Good luck as you start your journey.

Cheers!

  1. There’s just something about keeping on writing that it should just be the main mantra of every writer out there. A lot of my writer friends have lofty goals, but they don’t seem to write as much as they dream. Thanks for sharing this wonderful list!
