Learn the craft of writing.

You’ve had that book title and idea in your mind for ages. Finally, you have decided to write. Once the decision is made, you’ll want to get started and you won’t want to stop. Halfway into the book, or maybe not even that far, you begin to feel that your book is not working.  Why?

One reason might be that you didn’t take time to learn your craft…. to learn about organization, to learn about outlining, to learn about parts of the type of book you want to write, etc.

Writing is a big topic. When I started my first book (which, by the way, is still in the closet—never to be seen by another human or feline), I wanted to write, write, write. Get it done and grace the world with a book more beautiful than the reading population could ever imagine.  A very few of us can sit down to write with no training.  It takes study and practice.

Great pianists, great basketball players, great artists, etc., don’t apply their individual crafts without practice.  This post is just to tell you that it’s important to take your time, to learn what needs to be learned and to practice your writing everyday. Through practice lousy writers become mediocre and mediocre writers become great.

Through the posts, I hope to help you relax… practice…and enjoy learning what you need to know to take your writing to another level.

Think about it and have a great day.
