Writing Myths

One common element whenever citizenry gathers is that the got to talk and share experiences. Often that requires turns into something a touch more fun, a touch more dangerous — “gossip”. “Gossip” is usually fun but it also can be dangerous because it spreads quickly (because it’s fun) and sometimes distorts or maybe completely avoids reality. Gossip creates myths in many fields and professions, and therefore the field of writing is particularly prone.

The top five myths about writing are:

Writing is easy for some people. Let me tell you that’s almost the most important myth going. I have been a knowledgeable writer for happening two decades now. I also know many other professional writers of varied ages, experience, and income. I don’t know a writer who will tell you that writing is straight-forward. Writing is brutal, diligence and there are times once I think it might be easier to easily open a vein as Red Smith said. However, there is something known as ‘experience’ and ‘practice’ which can make many writing tasks easier. There are some writing tasks that I can almost accomplish on autopilot because I even have written that specific format and/or topic tons.

Writing requires talent. I won’t lie. ‘Talent’ is something which can certainly help and ‘talent’ is what differentiates between a great writer and a good writer. But the reality is that talent isn’t enough to form a writer great or maybe good and talent isn’t a necessary requirement to be an honest writer. Writing may be a skill which will be learned, developed and honed. If you practice your craft if you read the writing of others to find out more about your craft, and if you seek and accept guidance and suggestions about your writing then you’ll improve and grow as a writer. Dedication harnessed with talent can create amazing results but if I had to select only one then I might accompany dedication. An important aspect is ‘dedication’ through which you can always increase your skill level.

Writing isn’t a useful skill. I have made my living as a writer for my entire business life but albeit you don’t shall make you’re living with words you’ll need this significant skill. There simply isn’t a profession that doesn’t involve writing. Perhaps the shape will vary, but written language is that the cornerstone in every professional field. Your writing ability will often impact landing employment also as advancing in your career. Today written language is even more crucial in professional and private relationships.

Writing cannot be the only source to earn your living as a writer. I can remember once I told my father that I wanted to be an English major in college. He was very worried that I wouldn’t be able to support me. The truth is that I even have never had trouble finding employment and today I own my very own business due to this versatile and important skill. Not only are you able to make a living as a writer but writing is an important tool for several other careers and professions.

MYTH 5

Writers’ block is alive and is torturing writers as you’re reading this. I’m not dismissing the difficulties inherent in handling writers’ block but whenever I talk with writers purportedly affected by it they fall within two general groups. The first group actually creates their own block by insisting on the right place, mood, or alignment of planets so as to write down. This is beyond ridiculous. One of the various benefits I gained from years of newsroom experience is the ability to write down in almost any condition or mood. Deadlines will teach anyone the way to give writers’ block short shrift. The second group I even have more sympathy for as their problem really is internal in nature. Usually, the matter is that the actual story (whether fiction or nonfiction) they need to inform isn’t yet finished cooking in their brain. In this case, while the writing could also be stalled I don’t agree that it’s blocked. The writer must hear that inner voice and respond appropriately. Sometimes the thought needs longer to percolate and sometimes more research and/or planning is important. Once the right adjustments are made the writing will begin to flow again.
