Hey Guys! It has been a while since I have posted writing advice and I guess I just got my head drowned in books this past week and trying to see what other designs I can do for my blog. So before I start I just wanted to ask if anyone has any great sites for blog designing that is free because I just want something more to my blog design.
One day in dance class, we had a guest teacher Alex Wodja from So You Think You Can Dance. She told us to be a strong dancer it's all about contact. Make contact with the audience, to not be afraid of looking at the mirror in the dance studio.
So I asked myself, what makes a strong writer?
It's hard to define a strong writer, it's not just if you are a bestselling author or not I feel a strong writer is someone who stands out and knows their game. The writer I want to be would be focused, unique, fearless, and most importantly, she will know herself as much as she knows anything else in the world.
So I actually looked up stuff online about being a writer, and it was as boring as my fish jumping out of its bowl. Okay, well the fish thing was pretty cool but all the stuff online had a bunch of grammer chiz that I doon't want to read. So here are my own ideas of being a strong writer.
Have A Voice, a Meaning
A strong writer has to have a personality, you have to sound like a person. This is what makes you unique, and gives your writing a purpose. Along with your voice, what do you want your writing to change? Why would people want to even take a look at your work? What is your purpose?
This world doesn't need anyomore nonsense writing, in this century it will almost take a miracle to get your work accepted, because that's the thing. Your meaning or purpose will take you apart from any other writer. Don't settle to be a common bystander.
Know Where You Stand
I am a thriteen- year- old who loves to write but still struggles in her goals and tries to help other people like her. I don't feel lke thirteen, I want to do more. But I'm still young, there's still time for me, and I don't want to push myself too much.
Where do you stand as a writer? I think this is extremely important to realize because it's different from where you stand any where else, know your player in the game. But don't let it get in your way, this is for you to remeber who you are and why you write.
Do I really have to explain this? Be fierce, bold, confident in your writing, comfortable with who you are as a strong writer. Fierce does not mean fearless. Fierce to me means making the strongest point of you stand out in your personality. It's not a feeling, it's an action. No matter if you feel like writing or not, write without fear of yourself.
Does that make sense?
Where Do You Want to go?
I'm talking about goals here. I felt like this should be included. You have to have heard them everywhere I'm getting kind of sick of it, but it's not something you should ignore. Goals are commitments, they are your promises.
Nothing much to say other than, MAKE YOUR GOALS!
What do you guys think? I just thought of these things right from the top of my head. Did I use that idiom right?
