How to write…
There’s a ton of information about writing online. You can find thousands of good blog post on the subject, and also a ton of good eBook. If you look on Amazon, you can find a lot of books on the subject.
With all that information available to you, why should I make a post on that subject?
It’s because, I want to share with you what’s on my mind.
I think that you can learn all you want about writing (You can read and read). Nothing is better then doing while learning. You need to write as you learn to make it better.
You can keep on reading about writing. It’s ok to do so. But you need also to do the writing.
I’ll give you some tips:
- Develop the habit of writing.
- Choose to dedicate time to the actual action of writing.
- The best would be to do this every day.
- At first, start with 20 minutes. A real 20 minutes where you do nothing else then writing. After 30 days, you can raise that time if you want. Don’t underestimate the amount of writing you can do in 20 minutes a day.
“The desire to write grows with writing.”
– Desiderius Erasmus
Yes, there’s a lot more to do after the creative moment. But if you can manage this part, the rest will be easy.

You are right, Mage1999: just the commitment to write twenty minutes per day will at least produce words on paper for experimenting, excavating for deeper meaning, exploring for corollary ideas, etc. I see you like quotes! Perhaps you already know it, but here’s one from my collection about writing: “To write is to embark on a journey whose final destination we do not know. Thus, writing requires a real act of trust. We have to say to ourselves: I do not yet know what I carry in my heart, but I trust that it will emerge as I write”–Henri Nouwen.
