Writing From The Heart

Written for: The Write Tribe Tips for Writers

Dear Friend

Today I thought I would share with you my views on writing with the hope that it will inspire you to keep writing or take up writing if you haven't started.

Write from your heart because when you do that, you write with passion and those that read can feel that passion.

Keep your posts short. Sometimes we have a lot to say but long posts can be draining for the reader. If you do have a lot to say, break them down into 2 or 3 posts.

There are those that will like what you write and those who won't. You can't please everyone so please yourself instead and you are sure to please some others.

Every where you go you'll see the Don'ts and Do's for writing. My view is, cultivate your own style and forget about those Do's and Don'ts. It's not in keeping with the norm that extraordinary things are born!

Personally I like real life stories rather than fiction. Real stories have a depth to them that fiction somehow lacks. And this quote sums that up very nicely:

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. 
~ Anais Nin

And in keeping with my own advise, I will keep this short and end with these words:

Have fun when you write so you can enjoy those moments and from that enjoyment will come the passion. Look forward to reading yours.

Be inspired, Stay inspired, Inspire someone.

Warm Regards

  2. Write from your heart................
    This is vital for every writer.

    At times SOME long posts take the fun away from reading. Your advise about breaking them down to 2-3 posts is necessary.
