How To Be an Amazing Writer?

“Ultimately, it’s not about how smart or experienced you are. It’s not about the design of your blog, neighed the fancy effects, pictures, and the perfectionism. It is not even about giving extraordinary and applicable tips and tricks, facts and hacks that your readers can benefit immediately from.

It all comes down to the way you make your readers feel.

Do you want them to cry? Or laugh out loud? Or get red with anger? Do you want them to take action?

Whatever you write, make them feel alive!”  


How to be an amazing writer?


When I decided to start this blog, I was not sure how am I going to make it. After all, there are thousands of blogs out there already and many more coming up every day. I am not the only writer in the world and surely not the most amazing one. How can my blog be amazing, unforgettable, outstanding? 

How?

Everyone has their own hidden dreams, desires, fears, and challenges. And once in a while, their emotions come out. You just have to find out how to bring them back into the surface, I thought.

The other day I was walking down the road on my way home after a busy day and was trying to soak at the moment. I was looking at the people, and my eyes started capturing little moments.

The bored old man got his hands on a kid’s ball in the park and his eyes started shining. A tired mom looked at her baby and started to giggle and laugh like she’s a small girl. The lonely old lady on the bench received a phone call and her face got all smiles. A guy at the bus stop put his headphones on and fingered an air guitar in excitement when his song started.  

Then I started thinking. People are full of emotions and reactions. In one moment they are all quiet and dull. The very next, their eyes are shining with emotion. In one moment their body doesn’t move, their skin is gray and the very next moment, they are full of vitality and glow. It’s like they suddenly come to life, a spark comes out. Because there is a spark there, buried deep inside every person.

Your job as a writer is to find that spark and turn it into a fire! That’s it! I said. For that, you have to watch the people closely. You have to talk to them and study their reactions, just like an observer. 

However, peoples’ emotions are something very funny. It’s hard to get them started if they have not been out for a while. Oftentimes, it takes something to give them a boost, to take them out. It’s just like with the old lighter. If you don’t give it a spark, it won’t lit. And whats the job of the writers? Well, their words are that spark that touches the emotions and takes them out. The tricky thing is, knowing where exactly to touch.

That’s why studying your audience is so important. You have to connect to the emotions of your readers, to understand them so that you can give the spark that can light them up.

Words mean more than you think!

Every piece of great writing is not just pixels on the screen or ink on paper. It has a certain vibe to it, energy in printed form. But where does that energy come from? Of course, the writer.

Think of it, when you read something, you can’t help it but feel how the writer enjoys telling his stories, how he totally sinks into the words. You can almost feel his passion or the lack of it. His anger, his criticism, his doubts, his fears.  This is how the connection happens. His text tickles your emotions. While you are reading, a wave of feelings takes you over, you get so much inside the words, that you almost feel like you are there, inside the picture, inside that story. You feel the way the writer does. And that connects you both!  I am sure you can immediately come up with a name of an author that has probably made you feel this way.

In fact, if you are a writer, or you are looking how to start, you should ask yourself, what kind of emotion do you want to trigger with your writing?

What kind of emotion do you want to create in your reader? Cry, laugh, get mad, get sad, beat your keyboard if it need be. Create that emotion inside of you and then let it flow into your words…into the ink on the paper, the pixels on the screen. Your readers will feel that and it will light them up. And they will remember you. Words mean more than you think!

How to be amazing?

Ultimately, it’s not about how smart or experienced you are. It’s not about the design of your blog, neighed the fancy effects, pictures, and the perfectionism. It is not even about giving extraordinary and applicable tips and tricks, facts and hacks that your readers can benefit immediately from.

It all comes down to the way you make your readers feel.

Do you want them to cry? Or laugh out loud? Or get red with anger? Do you want them to take action?

Whatever you write, make them feel alive!

Maybe you can recall that great concert that left you shaking from excitement, or that movie that made you feel a little different, or that comedy that made you cry out of laugh that day.

The amazing writing can do the same! It can shake the reader. And the best thing is that it has the power to affect people on a global scale. We live in times when one single blog post can reach thousands of people in a few minutes!

Can you realize what an incredible impact can this have?

It can change somebody’s life, literally!

That’s why take your writing seriously! Don’t just publish another random blog post, another tip, another hack, another short story…

Set your audience on fire! Don’t give them just text to read, give them an amazing reading experience! Write with so much energy, enthusiasm, and passion that they get charged and hungry to Learn.Inspire.Share.Thrive.
