Are you a writer? Or are you not one? Do you see yourself as a writer?
Have you fallen in love with the written word? Have you ever savored a story, wondered how words came together, longed to see your name on a cover?
Have you ever thought you’d like to create something, anything, with words, but you don’t know how?
The first step? See yourself as one. Then, as you get used to this new “identity”, you can take steps to physically and emotionally set yourself up to be productive. This will mean creating a writing space, organizing your time, seeking inspiration, and writing regularly without fear.
Think Like A Writer In 10 Minutes A Day is for the hesitant writer who hasn’t made that jump yet from non-writer to beginner. This book is for that critical first step: to think like one.
The three sections in it: Logical Thinking, Emotional Thinking, and Resistant Thinking gently helps the wannabe organize their space and time, rein in their emotions, and fight discouraging thoughts. Each section has several exercises, all short and doable in small increments of time, so that newbie writers can work at their own pace.
“Everybody is talented because everybody who is human has something to express.” If you have a desire to write, even if you don’t have a clue what it would be, then the next step is to see yourself as a writer, think like one, and begin your journey.Brenda Ueland said in If You Want To Write
