I love describing what we do in the writing workshop I teach. I like to start small and then work on building a larger piece. I like to use a variety of images and write about them. I like to use a variety of tools to help me write with and then use the writing as a foundation for the larger piece.
Writing is a lot like painting. Some of the best advice I’ve ever received on getting good at it is “just do it.” I mean, no one is going to make you do it. The only way to learn it is to do it. I once had a client who was so adamant that she was going to be a writer. She was so concerned about the process and what she was doing that she was so frustrated with the process that she was ready to quit.
That kind of self-doubt is why I’ve always felt that I’ve been a bit of a perfectionist as a writer. There’s a lot of pressure to make sure that I’m the best writer I can be, but I don’t think it’s a bad thing.
No one is going to make you write a book. No one is going to make you write a book. If you want to write a book, you have to do it. You can’t just create it in your mind and then sit back and say youve done it. Writing a book has its challenges too but there’s no reason to feel that you have to write a book.
The idea that Ive made my life easier by writing a book is that I can create a book that I cant read and then feel Ive needed to write it. Writing a book can make a lot of people want to read it so they can put it in their lap and then say “wow. Ive done it! Ive done it!”. That can make you feel better and it keeps you from feeling like a fool.
Ive done this so Ive got a better brain and Ive got a better head, it just can’t take the pressure off me.
Yeah, Ive written a book. It was a long time ago I was reading and then I threw it away. I had a bad habit where I would read books that I thought I wasn’t really going to like. I would then write a book about it and then it got better and better until it became a major part of my life. I can’t tell you how many people Ive met through my writing career.
Ive read a lot of your posts on the topic of self-awareness, but I have to say it has to do with your writing style. It’s also not a good place to start because there are tons of other things you can do which also get harder to read. If you have to be with people who do get too much of your thoughts and actions, you have to be very careful with your writing and your writing style.
You’re probably right about that. If you’re writing about your own self-awareness then you’ll need to be very careful about how you write about yourself. I have to say I have a few of the main things that I most tend to do that I use much more often. I don’t think that self-awareness is the primary reason, but the fact of the matter is that it’s a lot more important than anything else.
I think it’s because that writing about yourself gives you an opportunity to do it in a way that you may not have been able to with your own thoughts and actions. It also gives you an opportunity to show how you’re different in a way that may not have been possible before. Its not that self-awareness will make you be better at writing, its that writing about yourself will make you better at writing. And in some cases its not as easy as you would think.
