Not surprisingly, creative writing is most commonly considered an art form. The creative arc of a plot line and narrative voice draws a natural link between the pleasure of writing and the artistic world. Work to achieve the artful blend of tenses, cursive and discursive consciousness, rich character development, and illustrative backdrops. This is the key to creating a kaleidoscopes of literary textures and tones.

Craft is a purposeful choice of vocabulary, sentence formation, voice, and tone.

The craft of writing is not just about words and sentences, it’s about knowing how to put these words and sentences together in a compelling way. Reading anything and everything opens a world of possibilities. By reading, with a critical eye, writers can learn the elements and techniques that established authors use to meet reader expectations.

Seldom have prominent writers waited for their “Eureka” moment to pen their thoughts. If you look at the lives of successful authors, they have dedicated a routine and set goals to make a career out of writing.

Like all crafts, writing requires the labour of love, repeatability, and consistency.

It also requires skill and dedication. You can learn writing. You can get better the more you write.

Your readers love you because they know what to expect from you. Rightfully so, because you have put hours into researching, writing, and editing your work for your audience to read.

The art lies in the way you tell a story which will be unique to you. Not unlike an artist, it is your consistency and dedication that will define you as a writer.

with compelling characters,

intricate worlds,
