Writing, like any creative pursuit, can be as simple or as complex as you make it out to be. Should you use a word that sounds difficult and will make you sound intelligent? Or would that be counter productive since your reader won’t be able to comprehend it?
Should reading books be an important part of your day or would that be a waste of time, the time you could instead spend writing?
There are so many ideas that keep popping into your head. Should you start writing all of them parallelly?
Questions, questions all the time. But there is no need to make it so complex. Here are 5 tips by successful writers revealing the secrets of writing.
1. Just Write
“No thinking - that comes later. You must write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is... to write, not to think!” - Sir Sean Connery, William Forrester
2. Use Simple Language
"One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple."- Jack Kerouac
3. Read a Lot
"If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that." -Stephen King

4. Don’t Give Up
“It doesn’t matter how many book ideas you have if you can’t finish writing your book.” — Joe Bunting
5. Have Fun
“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” – Ray Bradbury
All you need to do, or rather all WE need to do, therefore, is start writing.
One word after another.
One sentence after another.
One page after another.
And then, one book after another! That’s all there is to it.
