I am a writer – Day 1 #my500words


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.

I am a writer

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.

Final words

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?
