It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means! Guest post day! This week’s guest poster is the lovely Rachel Poli who answers the question “Why do you write.”
Why do you write?
by Rachel Poli
I think anybody can write. While it’s not an easy task or even easy to get into if you take it seriously enough to have it your full-time career, I do believe anyone can be a writer.
Whether you write in a journal before bed each night, you recreate your favorite characters through fan fiction, or let your imagination lose in a notebook for your eyes only or online for the world, you’re a writer.
Today I’m going to talk about the Three P’s of writing…and no, they aren’t Pancakes, PJs and Procrastination (totally should be though, right?).
Have you defined what your writing goal is? If you want to be a professional writer (get paid to write) then it’s a good idea to think of it as a business. Having a goal is important.
Following on from my first post about becoming a more organised writer. If you missed it, you can check it out: How to be a more organised writer (pt.1).
Great! The world could always use more writers.
I’ve been writing since I was 8 years old and I’m now a lot older than 8. I have seen my work improve and I feel that over the many MANY years I’ve been writing, I’ve gleaned some personal thoughts on what (I think) people need to know if they want to be writers.
