Are you writer? Everyone is a storyteller, and everyone who knows how to put words on paper or a computer is a writer.Think about it. You make lists, send emails, tweets. These are all forms of writing. True, these shortened forms aren’t likely to earn you a publishing contract, but not everyone writes because they want to be published. In today’s digital world, publishing contracts aren’t the only or necessarily the most effective best way to spread a message. The best way to improve your writing is to write. Write often. Write on scraps of paper, your computer, your iphone…anywhere. Well, ALMOST anywhere! Have a conversation using the written word. Don’t let punctuation, grammar or spelling impede the writing; these actions come later. Don’t worry about how many words or pages you are writing, in fact, don’t worry. Writing should be a therapeutic time. A time to get what’s in your head and in your heart out where you can see it. There’s no requirement to share what you’ve written; in fact, don’t share it until you’ve shaped the words that convey your message in a clear, engaging manner. Editing comes later.
