I remember how fun writing essays and feature articles and short stories were for me, and how easily the words flowed from my mind to the pen/keyboard. At one time, I felt that if I could, I’d write forever. I don’t know what changed– it could have been my busy schedule jam-packed with academics, org and council duties, and whatnot — but I found myself writing less and less, until the prospect of having to write out what happened during the week seemed more of a chore than a hobby.
Now, I constantly look for writing tips around the Internet in the interest of rekindling my passion and love for writing.
If you’re anything like me, here’s a link to Ann Patchett's 7 Writing Tips so that you can gather some tips about writing, too. She even included links to tips given by award-winning authors such as C.S. Lewis and Margaret Atwood!
I’d have stopped writing years ago if it were for the money.
