My Dear Future Readers,
Recently, I was asked where I get my ideas from. An interesting question really. Which is why I want to write this post.
Have you ever heard of the phrase, ideas are everywhere”? I find that this is more true every day. It is not about finding ideas really but about finding inspiration to write those ideas down on paper. Or,in my case on this post. Sometimes, it admit it is hard to find one idea to write. But, I try to think about what I would want to read and that helps me write. In some cases, it takes longer time but it really doesn’t matter how long it takes, what matters is that you have ideas.
For example, the ideas I am writing down now in my book came really unexpectedly that I me. Those are the best kind of ideas if I were to be honest with you. Sometimes, the euphoric ideas are the ones that help you write faster. Now, that is not to say that every author has to write only when they get a euphoric idea. I’m saying that a euphoric idea helps to add words to the story faster. Authors should write everyday no matter what. It helps to come up with ideas faster when you are already in the process of writing something.
Passion about the things that you are writing about is also important. Why? Because if you are passionate about the subject you are writing about, you can find more to say about it. Passion about anything makes a person seem more interesting. For example, when I talk about my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love or another book that I am writing in the series, I begin to sound different as though I can talk about my ideas for hours if I am not stopped. That is what passion is. I think that many of us forget about this because we find less things to be passionate about in today’s world. But it really doesn’t matter what you are passionate about whether it is art, music, dance, literature, reading, writing or something else, passion is a good thing to have.
I think if you are writing or making art you also need to learn discipline. Now, it does not mean you have to force yourself to sit and make art every day for the fear that someone will come and beat you with a ruler like in the old times. No. I mean that you have to devote time to the activity. Enough time to accomplish something that you can be proud of later.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
