How To Make Writing Fun For Anyone

Written by Geoffrey

If you consider yourself a would-be writer, as in you would be a writer if only you had the discipline or the imagination then this is the recipe for you. This can be done anywhere by anyone because everyone has some discipline and imagination or else you'd never have learned that complicated and abstract thing called language.

Step 1: Start Writing

You first want to get the pages moist with ink, as it were. Start writing about the fact that you are starting to write, if that's all you have, but you can't finish unless you actually begin. If you already know what you want to write, but don't know if you can stick to it then that might be because you haven't found the fun in it yet.

Step 2: Write About Yourself

Describe, comment, praise or even advise yourself, but write about your favorite subject: You. Maybe even write about things that aren't true yet, but that you'd like to be. There is great power in committing thoughts to words on a page. Don't worry about overall structure just yet as that may only slow you down before you've even begun.

Step 3: Read Your Words Aloud To Yourself

There's a music to language and you should be the first person to benefit from that. Besides it can be a quick way to notice any problem spots that still need some clarity.

Step 4: Simplify

Go back over what you've written and cut out those parts that are a mouthful or are hard to picture. If you really like those parts than simplify the descriptions so they are easier to read and imagine. The important thing is to streamline so don't fret over any one part too hard.

Step 5: Stop Writing

Let your head empty out after all that thinking and do something else.

Step 6: Start Re-Writing

This is when you start from the beginning again turning your thoughts into words, but with a little more structure than the last time. Rewriting doesn't have to mean patching the holes of a previous draft, but can be about starting anew with a little more direction. That means you can't be afraid to throw out everything you've already written. The goal here is to turn writing into something fun and if you chain yourself to a previous draft just because it contains a few favorite phrases then you may wind up frustrated and stalled once again. Don't worry about all that. The phrases will still be there later if you do find the perfect place for them, but for now just enjoy the process of giving form to your own personal imaginings. That's the real fun.
