You know, I don’t know how other people work for writing, though I’ll just say what works for me.
Three things. First, spellcheck is everyone’s best friend(I need to visit him more often as well.)
Second, is what a highschool teacher one told me when I was having trouble. Write the parts you want to first and then fill in the gaps of how it got there after. There’s a few reasons to this. One, motivation is an important factor. Two, if you have a part you want to write that means you already have an idea of what you want to do.
Then the third thing which is ironically, harder to put into words. I’m not exactly a wise mountain sage when it comes to the ways of the pen and keyboard. That being said, I’d say I’m drastically better at writing than when I was a teenager. Confidence comes with time and practice. Which comes with it’s own risk of people assuming they have nowhere they need to improve on, which has never been true for anybody.
Think of it like this: “Learning is not child’s play; we cannot learn without pain.” Aristotle
So, if even a genius like Aristotle calls learning a painful process that isn’t easy, what does that say about most of us? That improvement doesn’t come easy. Which ties into another thing thing he said. “Happiness depends upon ourselves.” So, if learning is tough and the road to happiness is one we have to do ourselves? That definitely means most of us have our work cut out for us, and at the same time, the self satisfaction that comes with it , is truly something that’s our own accomplishment. Challenging? Yes. Worth doing? Also yes.
