How do I write fiction?

Getting ready to create anything is hard but writing can be fun. Often we think of creative writing as something only certain people can do; However, anyone who has a love for words can enjoy writing. It's all about being dedicated.

Here are some simple steps to help you get started.

Find a writing group in your area. I cannot stress how important it is to communicate with other writers. Check out your local library. Sometimes there are writers’ groups that get together and critique each other’s writings.

Write everyday! Get a notebook or some writing gear that you like, it helps promote a good feeling toward your writing.

Read, read, read.... the types of books you are interested in writing. This will help you to identify the type of writer you want to become and sets examples of the layout and writing syles.

Read, read, read.... books that are opposite of what you want to write. Sometimes if we read books that are not in our usual scope, reading other styles and stories can help with writer's block and to get creative ideas.

Don't be critical of yourself, that is what edits are for,just write. Tell yourself that you’ll come back and edit later. Let the ideas flow. You will see things you would like to change every time you read your work.
