What do you think writing is?
Do you think its just an ability to write letters and words? Or its a PASSION for you?
What’s it like when you first read a book or an article that made your heart sing?
Do you even realized that there was something on the writings that touched and inspired you?
There’s something about the words written in the article you read that moved you, energized you. There was something in every single words written their that boost your emotions and keeps you in reading.
Curiosity kills the cat right?
So, then you tried to read more books and create an article of your own.
But the question is…
How can you exactly make an article that is inspirational like the books or articles you have already read?
I will share some of my own ways I do in my writing.
1. Know Your Passion.
Passion is something that is related with emotion, right? It is a term applied to a very strong feeling about a person or a thing. So if you have passion for writing, you are already one step ahead in creating an inspirational writing. But in writing, PASSION refers to the topic you are passionate with. Choosing your genre will help you create a great and inspirational article. For example, you love reading and watching love stories, you are surely be great in creating a love story or article. Or for example you are humorous and you love to make other people laugh , you may be great in creating a comedy stories or articles.
2. Look for Inspiration
If you already have picked your topic of your article, it is time now to capture inspirations. It may be some of your past moments or something you want to happen in your life. It could be something you think is impossible to happen in your life or something you dream of. Or you can inspire your article about your everyday life, or in everything that happens around you.
You can bring something like notepad and pen to write down the inspirations that comes to you.
3. Believe in Yourself.
Of course in everything that we do, we have to believe in ourselves. Sometimes, trusting ourselves is a difficult job for us especially in writing. You always experience having doubts with your work. You think your article isn’t good enough to be read by other people so you don’t publish it and you just keep it to yourself.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. Distrusting yourself is the most inappropriate manner in writing. It won’t let your ideas come out in a way you wanted.
When you already trust yourself, you are ready to write.
Having no doubts on yourself will help you write smoothly and come out with your ideas.
5. Do some experiments.
Put your thoughts in your article or put some quotations that is related to your topic. It doesn’t have to turn out perfectly but atleast you know you enjoy what you are doing.
6. Be Fearless
Everyone has a little bit of fear when it comes to publishing their writing. I know, because I’ve been there and done that.
We think we have a lot of grammatical failures in our article and etc. But just think that you write your article whole-heartedly and think that what is written in your article is exactly the things you want to say to the world and that everyone around you is longing to hear it from you by your article.
7. Accept Feedback
Once you have published your article, there will surely be a comments and feedback such as positive and negative.
Don’t push down yourself once you received negative comments,instead take that as a new inspiration.
Those feedbacks may help you improve your skills in writing.
8. Remember Why You Write
Remember why you started writing.
It’s easy to get lacked in details once you start writing and want to become better and better at it.
But in the end you will end up realizing you enjoy writing and expressing yourself.
Let us remember that writing is a passion, not just a profession. If you write just because you want to earn then leave it.
Write because you want to write not because you want to earn. Write because you want to express yourself.
