Pen to the Page: How to Become a Writer (Giveaway)

HELP!

I WANT TO WRITE A BOOK




Do you have a story inside you that's itching to get out? Does this sounds familiar?

"Writing is hard and WAY TOO COMPLICATED TO LEARN, especially since I don't know which end of a sentence to start with!"


And why do people write books by themselves in the first place? What about all that grammar? Spelling? Outlining and plotting? Yikes!!!
These are good questions and I'd like to help answer them. How about we begin at the beginning.

The process of writing, whether it be poetry or a novel, begins with a pen and paper or the keyboard of a computer. That sounds rather simplistic but it's the truth. Someone can have a multitude of sonnets and stories floating around in his or her head, but until those words find their way to the page, that person is not truly considered a "writer."



Getting Started: Can you be a writer?

The Checklist

____ Characters
____ Story
____ Words
____ Desire to Learn
____ Determination
____ Paper/Computer
____ Time


How did you do? Do you have all of the traits of a writer? The "time" thing might take a bit of rearranging, but if I can write with a full-time job, you can too. I promise.

Now, I'd like to talk to you about what I think it takes to become a writer. If you'd like to try after listening, go for it! Join your local writing association, ACFW, or RWA . . . whatever you think will help you grow as a writer. Touch base with me through my blog and I'll give you pointers as well.



God bless and always,

In Christ,

Renee
