A Beginner’s Guide To Writing

Courage 2 Create

Many of the questions I receive in my e-mail inbox are from writers who are just starting out. These questions are from writers who have recently had an epiphany that they were meant to be writers; or they have always known they were writers, but had always postponed it and now have finally decided to embrace their passion and take it seriously.

So, today, I’d like to address these beginning writers and answer their most pressing questions.

Here we go:

“Hey Ollin, I’m a beginning writer.”

That’s awesome! Welcome to the writing community. It is a very supportive and loving community, as you will soon discover. Sure, there will be some bad apples, but don’t pay them any mind. Most of us writers are really cool people.

(Oh and by the way: just admitting that you are a writer is a very brave step. You should be very proud of yourself!)
