To Write, Not To Be A Writer


If you want to be a writer, write.

When you are dreaming of being a writer, it means you are still sleeping.

Wake up, get the hell out of your comfy blanket and get shit done.

If you have a trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself this:

“I have to go to work, as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for, the things that I brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To cuddle under the blankets and stay warm?”

There is no other way to do it.
Creating so many ideas without writing one is a waste.
Ideas do not make the sentence, words do.
And words are not going to write itself if you only think about it.

Get out of your mind.
Face a blank sheet of paper.
Start type anything.
The inspiration will come as soon as you write.

Because the hard thing is not dreaming big.
The hard thing is to write when you don’t feel like doing it.
The hard thing is to write when you have no inspiration.
The hard thing is to write even no one is reading your work.

It’s not “Who do I want to be in life?” but “What it is that I want to accomplish in life?”

Published an article or two doesn’t make you a writer.
What makes you a writer is that you write. And still doing it.

Accept when your writing sucks.
Be quiet when someone critic your writings.

Just continue to do your work.
You will get better at it eventually.

But only if you still write and publish your work.
Not only dreaming and thinking about writing.

Because you don’t have to be the best writer in the world.
You only need to write the best that you can.
