Writing is just one step in a much larger process

Writing is just one step in a much larger process

  • Budding writers should not be afraid of writing, but should experiment it as a form of free hand sketching.
  • They should spill out their brains and then build, fix or arrange the content in a creative way.
  • Writing does not just happen when we write something, but also happens when we are thinking, talking, seeing, listening and texting.
  • One needs to fall in love with writing and not think of it as a task to be accomplished.

  • The struggle, ego and insecurity are part of the writer’s block that simply disappears if we love the process of writing.

What is a beta reader?

Writing is Thinking

What most people don’t realize is that it’s often not actually the writing that is difficult. It’s the thinking behind the writing.


“Writing is thinking. To write well is to think clearly. That's why it's so hard." - David McCullough


Writing is essentially a robust tool that enables us to clarify and communicate our thoughts. While writing, you are forcing yourself to think critically and exercise parts of your brain that are typically on auto-pilot.  As Einstein once said, “If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.”
