I chose this picture because it looks like something you could write about. You could make up a story, poem, or simply sit by this stream and pour out your soul through your writing.
So you would like to be a writer? Cool. Me, too. There are so many resources out there to help you. Here are a few I have enjoyed.
- I subscribed to Jeff Goins’ blog some time ago. I have also listened to a few of his webinars on writing. He has a blog and a podcast. He offers all kinds of information relating to writing. You can learn a lot from him.
2. If you are thinking you might want to give blogging a try, here is a good resource to get you started. How to Start a Blog by Amy Lynn Andrews. She breaks the process down in easy steps to follow.
3. I subscribe to Eleanor Brown’s site called The Writers’ Table. She offers workshops and classes and some of them are free. If you subscribe to her blog you will receive 11 Ways to Quiet Your Inner Critic (….so you can write!).
4. Buy a journal or notebook and just start writing. Put no expectations on yourself. Just write because you want to. Tell a story, make a wish list, write a poem, etc. It doesn’t matter. It’s just for you. If you feel the desire to write, then just do it. I love journals so much that I have started creating them. You can find them at May Designs and on Amazon.
5. Check out WritersWeekly.com. It’s a great resource that I have been following for several years now. They have writing contests, articles about self-publishing, and they also offer a section called Paying Markets for Writers.
I hope this helps you start your journey to become a writer. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Have fun!
