I don’t know about you, but I’m a hands-on kind of person. I like to roll up my sleeves and learn the intricacies of things so I can understand them better. Recently I signed up for a Creating Web Pages class. I want to develop an official website, and I figured it was worth the expense for me to learn how to do it myself.

Developing your writing style is a step-by-step hands-on process. You can talk about being a writer all you want, but you aren’t going to learn about proper sentence structure or developing plots and storylines until you put your words and ideas down onto your paper. You need to roll up your sleeves and write.

What do you write about? Anything and everything at first. You need to get comfortable formulating your thoughts, which will eventually lead to creating stories. For some this will be an easy transition; for others it will take both time and dedication.

So grab a pen and paper or pull out your computer keyboard. Sit down and write. Gets hands-on experience so you can become the writer you’ve always wanted to be.
