Going back to my school days, I loved to write but it wasn’t to transform my thoughts into words. In fact, it was all about the daily assignments, home works, and scheduled test.
What inspired me to write this specific post? It was Jeff’s email and I was completely intrigued by his amazingly well-written words.
Here I say, “I am a writer”. I am not a wannabe, I am already one such writer.
Wow. It feels so good to say with such enthusiasm.
That’s so true, I wanted to be a communicator or someone who wishes to convince others by dialogues. Then, why not a writer?
When I write, I attempt to make it as simple as I can. Obviously, I desire to be better with my writing skills but I don’t want to discontinue for this unjustified reason.
You would be astonished to know that I used to write in a sluggish slow speed. I hated that! It was so challenging to shape my thoughts into propelling words that are meaningful enough to convince the paper checker.
When I was giving the paper of online journalism at my University, I had got millions of words in my mind, but I was damn slow in writing. Somehow, I filled the paper but it was disappointing. However, I got average marks but I was never meant to get average marks.
Something in mind was driving me crazy, “Girl, you need practice, a lot!”.
Maybe I am such writer, who prefers to write a good stuff rather than filler content. That’s why I think a lot before I write or the lack or practice is the prominent reason.
But, this short blog helped me to experiment multiple writing techniques and short writing challenges. It always helped me.
I firmly believe in the idea of practicing and I must say If you are a writer or wannabe you must have to practice.
Forgot to mention, earlier days of freelancing also supported me to become a better writer. Importantly, it focuses on the powerful word ‘practice’.
These words by Jeff inspired me completely, “I used to be like that, you know, used to call myself a “wannabe” writer, because I was too scared to claim the title. I found ways to procrastinate the work I was born to do all because of fear. I sabotaged myself before I began”.
No doubt, I also faced such times when I was scared to write. I tried to overcome the fear of poor writing but with time and abundant practice I became more confident.
I am a writer! And I have to write. When and how to write is again a different discussion, but one thing I know is I have to constantly write.
I would love to hear what are your thoughts about the idea of practicing and how can I do that with an ease?
