Five Things That Made My Writing Journey Simpler - Guest Post by Sudhām

Don't all of us have a friend or a friend of a friend who at every party you meet has a "What I really want to do....." tale to tell. Well yours truly used to be that guy. The good part; I always said I wanted to be a novelist. Trouble was getting started!

 
Now that I have, I can only tell you what has worked for me. You can call that a disclaimer of sorts but here are my writing mantras.


1. THE FACE IN THE MIRROR

The first thing is to take a look at the face in the mirror and have a conversation with yourself. They say that you invariably end up with the honest truth if you ask why five times. So ask yourself if you really want to be a writer, then ask yourself why you want to be one followed by a few more whys. If you find yourself answering them convincingly (to yourself) then you can be assured it's not a fleeting urge and it really is something that you are passionate about. It also will bring to fore any doubts you may have with regard to your intent, ability or both. Remember the point is to be honest.
 
I found myself delaying that conversation for a long time. I wish I hadn't though since it was this hard look inside that really made me understand how important writing was to my being. It was (and still is) my outlet, my warm blanket. Writing makes me happy. When somebody reads what I have written it makes me happier. If my writing manages to evoke a reaction it makes it special and makes it memorable when someone talks about it to a third person. I guess any journey that starts at happy is bound to get better!
