Home Writing Is there an easy way to make a story? I don’t want to talk sweet to say that here you will get an easy way to write. Logically, if indeed writing is that easy then everyone would be a writer and professional writers will not be special anymore. Writing is a process of creative work that will require the uniqueness of each author. Therefore, the most effective method for writing is the way you find and develop while you write your pieces. So, what I am going to share with you here is the approach that you can do to find a way to write the most suitable for you. I have written several fiction short stories have been published in various places. Also several original plays or that I composed from short stories that I wrote myself and have been widely used in several performances at local theaters. So far I still productive in producing work in a way that I developed myself. This method is assembled from several methods used by famous writers and some adjustments that I do to keep me feel comfortable while writing. 1. Take a Closer Look on Anything and Begin to Wonder About Everything “Let’s say that he should go out and hang himself because he finds that writing well is impossibly difficult.” – Ernest Hemingway It is a fragment of a sentence spoken by a great writer, Ernest Hemingway, when interviewed by George Plimpton on best practice to be aspiring writer. At the final sentence of the answer of the interview questions, Hemingway said, “At least he will have the story of the hanging to commence with.” Sounds reasonable but don’t you start to think to hang yourself just to produce a masterpiece. I can assure you that you don’t need to do that. I prefer to think that we should always be in research mode to create brand new and fresh ideas. We have to be more creative and critical, looking for new perspectives in seeing everything. When you want to tell something big, you don’t have to always start your idea with something big like an elephant, skyscrapers, or the sun. You can write about ants, dust, or even germs, because everything will look great if you look at it from a closer distance. 2. Start by Writing Anything Then You Can Write Everything “Don’t just plan to write – write. It is only by writing, not dreaming about it, that we develop our own style.” – P. D. James The above quote is the thing that I always remember when I would start to write. There will always be doubts that arise when you will start to write, whether it’s the idea that you write or how you present your ideas in your writing. Sometimes, even when you find great ideas for your writing, you still can find the fear of your readers would not understand the purpose that you want to convey from your writing. However, if you continue to be doubtful, you will not be able to start your writing, let alone create a masterpiece. Maybe you want to think: There will always be the possibility of readers will not understand what I mean by my writing but they will be more difficult to understand if I just keep my ideas always in my head. With such a mindset I write my ideas more freely and always try to think that readers of my writings are smart reader so I will not be too bothered by how I should write my writings. But what should you write? It would be easy to start your writing if you already have an idea, right? Rest assured that every human being is unique; any simple thing you are thinking could be the thing that never crossed at all in the mind of anyone, anywhere. If so, any idea in your head is an idea that may be of interest to some people or even all people around the world. Don’t think too much, just write! 3. There is Nothing Good about Excessive “Work on a computer that is disconnected from the internet.” – Zadie Smith Good writing is a writing that is able to touch with things that are familiar to the reader, so they will immediately understand the text without having too much to think. Therefore, being a good writer requires extensive knowledge, but too much information can also be a double-edged sword. With too much information in your head, it will be difficult to find an original idea for your writing. When you read too much person’s writings, you will unconsciously imitate the manner and style of writing, including the ideas presented in the text and when you realize that, the hesitation will re-appear on the uniqueness and the originality of your writings. So, what should you do? I usually went out to find a quiet place where my eyes can see a wide. Sometimes I bring a few friends to talk because I often get a good idea for my work from that conversation. I didn’t immediately look for things that I should write in my writing, just sit there and enjoy the surroundings. If you are always keep yourself in ‘research mode’ state you will always think creatively and can see things through a new perspective, and this is what will make interesting ideas will emerge by itself without you having to force yourself to think hard because it will only make yourself more reluctant to write.

One of the major things that distinguish you from others is your voice. It’s both the sound of your voice and the way you say things. When you write you also have a voice, and it distinguishes you from other writers. In this case, it’s the way you write things. And if you write in a pleasant and interesting way that is characteristic of your personality, people will be drawn to it, and are more likely to read it. Because of this, it’s important to develop a pleasing and readable writing voice. This article shows you how to do this.
Voice is what characterizes a writer; it is something you recognize immediately, in the same way, you recognize a singer after he or she has sung only a few words. One of the most important things in achieving a pleasant voice is writing the way you talk. The problem with this, however, is that your “talking voice” may not be pleasant, interesting, or even grammatically correct. Furthermore, some people have boring speech patterns, and if they wrote the way they talked, they would also be boring. So a good writing voice isn’t something that comes naturally, and it usually takes time to develop it. It’s much like a good singing voice; some people are born with one, but most people have to work at improving what they have, and this can take time.
You likely have some feeling for what a good writing voice is. On occasion, I’m sure you have picked up a book or article with a promising title only to discover that the writing, though clear and fairly concise, was boring. It just wasn’t interesting to read, and you found yourself struggling to stay with it. At other times you may have started to read something of only modest interest to you and discovered after a few paragraphs that you were enthralled with it. And you soon realized it was because of the writing; it was almost as if the writer was talking to you.
How Do You Achieve Voice?
Let me say right off that voice is something you want to develop, and it’s worth your time to try to develop it. So let’s turn to how you develop it. Two things are needed: relaxation and self-confidence. First of all, you must totally relax when you write and let the true “you” come through, but at the same time, you must be sure your writing has most of the things such as interest, readability and so on, that appeal to readers. Let’s look at each of these in more detail.
Most people feel confident when they are conversing with friends, and the reason, of course, is that they are relaxed. We are relaxed when we talk because we do it so often, and we’re particularly relaxed when we talk to friends because we don’t worry about what we say. It stands to reason, then, that if you want to put voice into your writing, you should do a lot of writing – and indeed, this the key. The more you write, the more natural it becomes, and the easier it is for you to do. No longer will you have to sit and think about what you should say (at least it won’t take as long). Writing will become as easy as talking.
It’s important also that you relax so that your writing sounds like your conversational voice. Don’t get me wrong, though. You still have to make sure what you write is interesting and entertaining. So there’s more to developing voice than just writing as you talk. But it’s the first step. You still have to make sure your writing is grammatically correct, readable, and clear, and you have to keep these things in mind as you write, but don’t worry about them in your first draft. That is what revision is for.
I also mentioned that you have to have confidence in your ability to write, and of course, this goes for almost anything you’re trying to master. Without confidence, you won’t get far. As your writing improves, however, your confidence will also increase. Something that helps is to read what you have written out loud occasionally; listen to how it sounds. Compare it to other writing. Other things that also help will be described below.
‘Soak Up” An Author
Another technique that is useful in developing a voice is what I call “soaking up an author.” You no doubt have several authors that you particularly admire. And, as you might expect, they can be helpful in developing your voice. Begin by looking carefully at the way they write. Study their “style.” Think about how they are achieving their results. Don’t copy them directly, but try to emulate their good points. Incorporate some of them into your writing. The important point is not to copy a particular one, but copy the best of several. It’s important to remember that you are different and have a different personality than any of these authors, so you’re going to write differently. So use what you can from them, but continue to be yourself.
It’s also very useful to compare something you have written to a few paragraphs of one of your favorite authors. Ask yourself if it is as good. If you feel it doesn’t revise it until you feel it is as good.
