From Our Readers: How to Be a Better Writer
"Write 500 words a day to be a better writer."
This is a good tip that I read while browsing the internet. Should I give it a try? What should I write? When and where do I start?
I will start by writing words one at a time each day; whatever pops into my mind, I'll write on paper. Words that may not be read today, but will make noise someday. Words that may be meaningless today, but others will find meaning in someday. Words that today may be boring but someday to the right people will be inspiring. Words that may be trash today, but will be treasures to people someday. Words that may not be good enough today, but someday, with the right people, will be the exact words they'll need and want to hear. Words that today may be useless today, but someday will be best for the right people. I will put these thoughts into words because they sincerely come from my heart.
One word at a time. I will write one word at a time. I will start writing now...until I reach 500 words. Because I believe that every great thing started with a single step, so I will write little by little, word by word.
"Do what you love, Love what you do." This has inspired me to be a better writer.
But how do you know what you love exactly? What should you be doing right here, right now? What is your purpose? What is your reason for waking up each day? What are the right words to say?
I'm still searching, still trying. I'm still creating myself. I am hoping that someday, I will leave a positive mark. It may be a mark that's not big enough, but it will be a positive mark. I will be braver, unstoppable. I will express what is on my mind, and try to be the very best I can in what I do. Other people may criticize me because they will always have something to say, so I will just do what I feel right in my heart.
I will keep writing, learning, expressing, living, growing, evolving, and moving forward. I want to inspire other people with my own words and own thoughts. I am not perfect, nor am I an expert but one thing I know for sure is that I am blessed. I am blessed with this talent and passion and I know there's a greater purpose for that.
