TITLE: How To Be A Good Writer

A picture paints a thousand words. A well-crafted piece, too, paints a thousand words. It is more often than not that a good piece of writing leaves a certain impression that would encourage the writers to write in an even better manner in the future.

A good piece of writing is what writers are aiming for. A well-taught and well-researched work is truly like a gem. When it is well written, it glitters like diamond. Many beginners want to learn how to write, but a good piece of work comes through constant writing. A good writing course would be something to aim for.

However, I have a recent experienced where I pay more than I should for a writing course. I was disappointed that the course contents did not match to what it was first advertised at the web. The lessons were short and scrappy, and there were hardly any hard facts and skills to learn from. The examples shown were limited and it hardly triggers the creative mind to think. There were just simply no ‘meat’ but a weak course that I felt that I did not learn much from. It hardly calls for my creative juice to be at work.

What keeps a writer going is to write everyday. This gets the creative mind to be functioning at its optimum and forms good creative thinking that keeps on improving. One of the ways to keep the creative mind working is to log the mind with good observation around us. We can use real life situations that paint more pictures than what we can hardly cope with. We can hear, see, feel, touch, and taste the situations around us with a quickened mind to grasp and use these experiences to create a good piece of creative work. Listening to other people’s conversation is also one of the ways that can help us create a good dialogue scene. Hearing them cause us to write naturally in those situations and circumstances.

Writers have a world of their world. In their own lives, there are one and a hundred situations that happened that can be used to create a well-written piece. Good writers use incidences and circumstances in their own lives to write and inform others about their thoughts and thinking. More often than not, lessons are learnt from the experiences. Writers do have a rich source of information to disseminate to others. They come with a real gem of gold and they are priceless and worth learning from.

A good writer is one who listens and put to heart what she/he wants to communicate. Listening helps the writer to sense where the situations and circumstance are heading at, and to put thoughts and ideas to that situation that can help readers to understand where the writers are coming from. It pays to have a good listening ear and this is where experiences are being picked up.

To be a good writer is to be admired. A good piece of work leads to pleasurable reading, and this is what writing is all about. We are filled with happenings all around us, and if we are quick to use these problems and experiences to write, we can truly be a prolific writer.
