First of all, know that I am not qualified to teach writing.
However, while I am not qualified as a writing teacher I am a highly qualified reader and I’m guessing in my life I’ve read more than most people in the various genres. I’m addicted to words, pure and simple. And my time spent in the world of marketing helped me develop a different set of skills to guide myself through a creative writing process. So, I’m going to pass a few thoughts along to you here today.
Rule one – Just write. don’t agonize over each word or sentence trying to get it right.Time for that later.
Rule three – Don’t edit while your creative juices are flowing, you could stop the flow.
Rule four – Just write. Let your brain do the walking with your fingers.
Rule five – Just write. Allow yourself to slip into another place (and time) let your imagination lead you.
Final Rule – If you noticed a theme going on, that’s because there is one. The more you write the more you become a writer. You’ll make many grammatical errors, typos and will want to know much more about the basics such as plot, character development, and so on. But the most important rule of all is to get the words down. You can figure out the rest later!
One additional note, many of the very famous authors that we know of, did not have any formal writing classes when they started writing and publishing their work. It turned out pretty good for them!
