Now, I'm going to tell you the secret to writing. The secret is: believe in yourself that you can create worlds without end. Believe in yourself that you can create the most perfect (or as perfect as you can get) villains and heroes/heroines. Believe in yourself that you can create a book that makes your readers smile, laugh, cry, and sad.
All you have to Believe.
Some writers like to type their manuscript up or to write it. For me, I write it on the computer, because, my hands just type away. I don't have control over them. They release my inner anger onto my MC, they release my inner happiness and make the most beautiful world, they create creatures that have never existed before and all I do is watch. My fingers try so hard to make a world that can't be compared to anything there is before.
Other writers like to use pen/pencil and paper (I'm kind of jealous because most writers who write on paper have such neat handwriting... and sometimes they use calligraphy pens, but their work is still so gorgeous). Writing on paper for me, actually makes me have the most writers block (which is super strange because I just do the same thing I would do if I'm writing on the computer). But, that's just for me. Others have the same... what's the word... Magic when they're writing on paper, which I think is amazing.
Whenever I write, I've got to get inspired to write about what I want to. Like, if I want to write about the Civil War and I do a bunch of research about it, but when I start writing it,I don't want to write it. I'm not in the mood to. I don't feel as if this is the story I should be writing, when there is something else in my heart saying, 'I'm the one. Please story ignoring me and let our destiny be fulfilled.'
So I start a new story, and leave that Civil War story for another day. Sometimes, I have the same reaction that I had with the Civil War book, so instead I decided to do a brand new story. A story that I didn't even know existed. And it's the NEW BOOK that I'm writing. So I'm really excited that I finished a whole chapter for it in a week; and it's a really great.
But, it's that I believed in myself that I could write a story. It's the greatest feeling to actually believe in yourself and someone who encourages you enough that they have started in the path of their own dream (right now, I'm talking about Charisma and the Go Teen Writer Community. They have been such a blessing in my life that it is unbelievable.)
Not only has the Go Teen Writer Community made me a better writer, it has made me believe in myself way more than I ever had before.
