Writing is a discipline and the more you apply yourself the better you will get. All you need is commitment. Some writers feel the most difficult part of writing is dreaming up characters, perfecting sentences or learning story structure. The hardest part of getting some writing done is just… doing it. Enthusiasm is not enough – it takes discipline, pure and simple.
Commitment to learning – commitment to writing.
The only way to reveal your true talent is to dig deep and live a disciplined writing life. And when you do, it will be a fulfilling life. And it will be a victorious life.
Discipline is directly linked to motivation. If your motivation for sitting down to write is strong, then the discipline will follow.
One sure way to fail at writing is to NOT do it!

Things I learned after writing 60k words in a month
- A lengthy sentence can be trimmed down to a few words by using the right words – words that carry accurate meaning and proper weight.
- While editing think about the message you are trying to deliver. Don’t force your reader to drag on through lousy writing.
- Write freely and publish it without second guessing your material. As a writer, with every word written you are growing, your opinions are evolving, your understanding is developing. Let the reader grow with you too.
- You can write everyday if you want to. Strive for quality. Like any other art, writing is a discipline. The more you write the better you will become.
- Focus on your message and you will nail it’s body and form. Systematically get the order of points which supports the explanation and carries the story forward.
- The topic of conversation does not matter as much as the narrative does.
- “All great writing is rewriting.” Every time I revisit my in-work manuscripts, I see scope for some form of improvement .
- Work on your grammar. Improving your grammar improves your writing significantly.
- Write down your whole story, then later on, develop those points into a full form piece. Arrange, rearrange and change the points as needed.
