Will, writing is not an easy task, it's like giving birth, both painful and creative, the only difference is that the words you write are the children of your mind..To write you have to be patient for keeping the stream of your thought running, it's hard at the first 3 or 5 minuets but then you will be amazed of what you've done, imagine some incident, make it like a dream, I mean logically..then let your words bond it to reality, ok..
first of all, why do you write? you write because you want to express your thoughts, you want to make yourself knowable to yourself, but do you know yourself ? will, I say that papers are the mirror of your inner self (thats after it's filled with words) you know yourself better and become more knowable about your inner world after you write about your thoughts.. some people are blessed with expressing themselves better on paper than the others, thats why we see in the history of novelists that they came from a different backgrounds, Dostoyevsky , my best one, was an engineer officer. Conan Doyle, the creator of Holmes, was a doctor. Hemingway rode an ambulance car in WWI ( that experience lately built his Farewell to arms) even old Jiraya sama the favorite of Kakashi is a ninja master, then, writing is not a profession, it's something you do according to the rules of your mind and you do better when you read more and study about literature and criticism and have a life experience or a load of pain and depression, something you do out of the great human experience, some people didn't study literature and became a great writers, it's a 40% talent and 60%hard work..
you have a lot of free time ? you want to use a little bit of that time ? I mean USE it , then start, fill a page of what happened in your day at school or at work, make it fiction-like, only one page, you joined this group because you want to write something and you still browse this group, at least 10% of you do, make a move, do the novel of your life and experience the joy of writing !


I will add something else here every week if I had the chance, hope you like the topic and waiting for your replies ...

How can you be connected with your ideas in a way that they could be described by words, it's a training gained by practice and observation, by taking the whole surroundings as a piece of art work, while watching how people react and think, you can build your world (your imaginative fictional world)..Connected to reality by hidden threads that you only can control. You can take long walks among people in the streets or parks, or if you are living by the sea (like our city) you can watch sunrise or set by the sea in a stormy weather, you can make long chats with friends just to watch their stream of thoughts... Be sociable and at the same time don't let society affect you when you write about what happened over there... Be active as to keep moving from one activity to another, work, sport or study or whatever your activity is... Be emotional, feel the love to the degree you can write about it maturely, be surrounded by your loved ones all the time, if they didn't encourage you forward, then they don't deserve you..Train the muscles of your imaginative brain, watch animes, movies, read a lot, and if you love video games and have the time for it, then go for it...Be selective, don't swallow almost anything given to you, I don't mean food of course, I mean what the world and society and people provide you..
See you next time !
