What You Should Know About Writing

When I was five years young, I met my first love…

Listen to the full story in this video as I talk about the four truths about writing: https://youtu.be/GfSZ_nVlqR0

I learned a lot, grew so much, and realized truths about life and about writing. Even before I became an author later in life, I understood that writing is a gift, a skill, a privilege, and a responsibility.

1. Writing is a gift. People say that I was given a talent, that I should use it, that I should share it. I did what I could. And I continue to share this gift of writing that was gifted to me.

2. Writing is a skill. While it could be a form of a natural talent, it is still largely a skill. You must develop it. You must learn the rules of writing and employ them as you write. That’s why a not-so-good writer like me could grow and become better in this craft. I have a lot of improving to do in this field.

3. Writing is a privilege. Not everyone is given the opportunity to write. Not everyone is given the platform to share a message. Not everyone is given the privilege of writing. Hence, if we are given this chance to write, we must treasure it. A platform has been served us, that’s why we need to serve in response. This brings us to the fourth truth.

4. Writing is a responsibility. Even before the rise of fake news and misleading propaganda, it was instilled in me that writing is a responsibility. Therefore, it has to be truthful. It is a big challenge but it’s the price that we pay if we are to write.

Remember all these as you go on and write.

And if you will observe a balance in these four truths about writing, you will better appreciate it, enjoy the process, and grow so much as you do it.

I help aspiring authors write and publish their books in six months. Since April 2020, eight new authors were coached under my banner program 'From Pondering to Published' and have successfully launched their books. The third batch is currently in progress and we are expecting more authors. The next one could be you.
