What makes a good story?
Writing is an art form that allows us to express our thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Our words become the brushes and pencils we use to cover the canvas of each blank page. But what makes a good story?
Find your unique voice
When it comes to writing, your voice is what sets you apart from others. It's your unique style, your way of expressing yourself. Finding your voice is about being honest with yourself and embracing your story. A story that deserves to be told in your own words.
Why does writing matter?
Writing is a powerful tool. It has been around for a very long time, a way for people to express themselves and document their experience of living. Whether it's joy, sadness, anger, or fear, writing can help us gain perspective on these emotions. Embrace the highs and lows of life and infuse them into your writing.
What do I need to start writing?
Don't overcomplicate it, maybe doodle it.
People tend to overthink writing, often leading to 'writers block'. Writing should be simple. If you don't feel like writing down your thoughts, maybe try to doodle or draw it. Our thoughts are often visual, but we communicate and process information mainly through words. When you were a child, you would draw pictures to illustrate what you might be feeling or thinking.
Why not try doodling your ideas next time you feel the words are few and far between.
Writing is an art that allows us to express ourselves and connect with others. Your story is unique, and it deserves to be told in your own style. Embrace your story, your style. Just start. Pick up your pen, open your notebook cover, and let your story unfold.
