As I sip my glass of wine, I can feel the voice inside my head telling me to write. I can hear it loud and clear.
When I started this blog, I didn’t know what to write about. I first started writing about different topics from current events, my own thoughts, and things going on in my life. There was no structure in this blog.
I’m struggling to find my niche in writing. I knew writing was my gift years ago, but self-doubt crept in every time I had the urge to write.
Maybe I’m thinking too hard about finding my niche. I should just write. Just write. That’s all there is to it.
Last week, I picked up a copy of the Writer’s Digest magazine from a local bookstore. I felt the urge to get it. Reading through the pages, I found a contest writing 700 words or less using one of …show more content…
I didn’t know where to start. I felt (and still feel) I don’t have the talent. I know I have a long way to go as a great writer, but it’s in there. I just need practice. Writing every day will help.
That same day I stopped doubting myself, I bought two books to help me with my confidence in writing. Write Fearlessly, by Jim Denney, is one of them. I’ve already read 1/4 of it. It’s all about writing with confidence. This book makes me want to write. There are so many tips about what you should do when you feel fear and getting in the zone while writing. It even says that many well-known and successful writers struggle with fear and self-doubt. The second book, Page after Page, by Heather Sellers, is more of a practical guide with everyday exercises. I love practical guides because they help you take action and encourage you to just do it.
I can picture myself now saying, “I’m a writer.” You know when someone asks you what you do for a living. It feels weird saying it now, but I hope in the future I will have the confidence to say those powerful three words.
It’s good to know what I’m feeling is normal and now I feel more like a real
I don’t really like writing because whenever my teacher tells me to write about something I start to get confused on what to say then I start to get mad at myself and start to cry.The best thing I have ever written is when I had to wrote about legos, it was a nine pages and alot idioms and more.
Writing is a skill that many authors use to show their style or qualities. Writing is such a great experience and it allows you to tell stories, or speak your opinions. It gives you opportunities to speak up and show your worth. There is two important steps for writing, one is to always think positive, and two is always believe in what you have to say. Many people struggle with writing at times and that's because they haven't thought out their ideas all the way or showed their full potential yet. It takes time to become a good writer.
The first thing I can remember about my writing was in 8th grade my English teacher inspired me to write. Not only about short stories but about my life if I didn't want to talk about my problems. I remember it so well, I was having a hard time with school and family issues were happening. My grades reflected that writing helped me a lot. I realized what I had to do, writing changed everything opened up more I felt better as a person my writing opened my eyes in a way. I did my work and efficiently. I don't like to read nearly as much as I like to write. I used to write a lot more about things I thought I was pretty good at writing short stories but then I just stopped
“To write to be a writer, I have to trust and believe in myself as a speaker, as a voice for the images. I have to believe that can communicate with images and words that I can do it well. A lack of belief in my creative self is a lack of belief in my total self and vice versa- I cannot separate my writing from any part of my life. It is all one” (95).
I’m not a notable writer, nor have I really wanted to join the writing industry. However, I have been interested in other people’s writing. From their deep meanings, content, and different formats/styles. It’s a wondrous creation made from within our imagination and experiences. It has inspired me to write too. I’ve been writing most of my life that it has become a necessity. And now from my past experiences with writing, I try my best to improve my skills as a writer for the future.
Writing has always been a love – hate relationship of mine. In the past, I have had many writing experiences, both good and bad. I find many things involved with writing both simple and difficult. But in the end, I hope to become a better writer, so it can play an important role in my future.
Although I’ve never consider myself a writer, I think I can write some pretty good stories that can draw attention from my audiences, especially fictional narratives. Besides drawing attention from my audiences, I also think my writings have good punctuation. But although I have some strengths in writing, I have some weaknesses, the process of starting a writing are the hardest, I doubt myself about what to write, how to write, and usually seen examples or seek help before I start writing, but after
I’d always enjoyed writing but I’d never been so vocal about it. For me, it happened quietly. My notebooks lie scattered over my bedroom floor; they had no place at the lunch table. And my writing survived on my acknowledgments alone, I couldn’t even imagine letting some else read it. This was due in part to my own self-doubt: I was embarrassed of my poems that never rhymed and my short action stories that never seemed to have any plot. But I
I have always been pretty successful in school; however, writing has always been one of my greatest weaknesses. The overwhelming pressure of coming up with what to say and how to say it is extremely stressful for me, and I typically give up on perfecting whatever assignment I am working on. Up until high school, my writing had accomplished just enough to pass me on to the next course. My experience at Savannah Arts Academy, however, inspired me to approach writing in a completely new way.
I started to write when I was 10 years old. It was under the recommendation of my therapist who believed that it would help me release negative emotions, and it did. Since then I have loved to write stories, journals, poems, anything that could set my imagination free. However as a writer I’ve always felt unsuccessful I have always felt that the pieces I write are never completed. Even more that as a writer I was not good enough and I shouldn’t show my writings to anyone that I shouldn't even bother to continue as a writer. These reason both motivate me and make me not want to continue but I choose to let it motivate me because I
I think the main reason I love to write is because I can take the topic I’m given and do whatever I want with it. I like having that sort of control. However, I want to keep learning how to structure my pieces so they flow and are more concise. Sometimes, I also struggle with sounding super pretentious when I write because I like using big words. Despite these shortcomings, I’m told that my writing employs good use of vocabulary and is creative. Additionally, I’ve done well in previous English classes, as well as in public speech and essay competitions. I’ve done a fair amount of writing and at this point, the only thing I find intimidating is starting my piece. Before I sit down, I tend to have a pretty good idea of what I want to say. However, it’s normally hard for me to get on the right track, so I waste a lot of time thinking about the perfect way to start. Despite that frustration, I still write all the time and am working to overcome
Writing has always been something I dread. It’s weird because I love talking and telling stories, but the moment I have to write it all down on paper, I become frantic. It’s almost as if a horse race just begun in my mind, with hundreds of horses, or words, running through my mind, unable to place them in chronological order. Because I struggle to form satisfying sentence structure, it takes me hours, sometimes even days, to write one paper. It’s not that I think I’m a “bad writer,” I just get discouraged easily. Needless to say, I don’t think highly of my writing skills. When I was little I loved to both read and write. I read just about any book I could get my hands on, and my journal was my go to for my daily adventures. Although it’s
Writing has always been a crucial part of my life. Despite any issues I faced, from my penmanship to my versatility as a writer, I wasn’t going to let these dilemmas prevent me from accomplishing my goals. Prosperity never came easy and at times it did seem futile to continue trying, but defeat wasn’t an option. Reflecting on the obstacles I conquered, it’s because of the arduous process I endured that allowed me to evolve into the writer I am today.
