Writing, like our speech, is a reflection of our thoughts and feelings. People can find out what we are thinking or feeling through our writing. Through our writing, people can understand what kind of topic we are interested or concerned in. Through our writing, people can get informations, inspirations or motivations. Through our writing, people can also judge what kind of person we are. That’s why we shouldn’t write something carelessly.
There’re two main things that must be obeyed by every writers : honesty and efforts. Many good writers really poured their heart into their writing. Their writing can be inspired by their own experiences or their circumstances. I know that there’s no 100% or absolute originality in writing because the idea of writing is actually a combination of various ideas that we rewrite again in our own writing style. Same ideas, same topics but different perspectives, different writing styles can make a distinction between one writing to another. You are allowed to be inspired or cite from other’s writing, but, plagiarism is not permitted. You are also not allowed to write a lie (e.g. fake news). Once you write a lie, people will see you as a liar. So, honesty is a must.
Although you’re still an amateur, although you still learn how to be a good writer, although you only write something based on what lies in your heart, you still need efforts to make it done. Do not ever make a writing carelessly even though you just post it on your social media (including your private blog). Do not ever make a writing carelessly just because there’re not many people read or click ‘like’ on your post. If you want to write an analysis about some of serious topics, you should read some references and even look for valid data to support your argumentations. Even you just write a fiction, you still need to read some references from other writers. Reading and writing are complemented toward each other. You can’t get rid of one of them.
If you want to post your writing or submit it to mass media, you have to do editing first. You can check if there’re typos and grammatical errors or not. Make sure there’s no contradiction between the title and content, each paragraphs and even each lines of the paragraph. Don’t underestimate the efforts even if it’s the smallest thing, because we’ll never know what will happen next to our life.
Writing requires persistence, patience and caution because your writing can show who you are. Whether people’s judgement of you are right or not, you still have to be careful of what you write. When you write a poem about heartbreak, people can assume you are broken hearted person. When you often write about culinary and travelling , people can assume you love to travel a lot and food lovers. When you write in a formal style, people can assume you as a serious person. So, how’s your writing says about you? Can you guess what kind of person I am or what I’m interested in based on my writings?
Have a great day everyone! Don’t forget to be happy
