THINK BEFORE YOU WRITE

Do you remember as being a four-year old, how you wrote the characters of your name?

Anyone can write! We learn it early. It seems good news that everyone can do it, and everyone does it. But there is a difference between just writing and writing thoughtfully.

We learn writing at a very young age. But thoughtful writing is only taught in the last years of primary school. Then you start thinking about something like a story, a coherent set of text.

At an older age you learn that different types of texts exist and have different goals. For example, an informative text is highly different from a poem.

That's why I start with one important advice: Think before you write!

Before you realize, you've already written forty pages, but perhaps don't know what it's all about and, if you're not happy with it, have no idea how to improve it.

To avoid confusion it's important to know for what purpose and why you write. It's necessary to think before you start. Writing begins in your head.

In other words, you can already be working on a blog or a book while you're working in the garden, sitting in the sun or taking a shower - that's why writers have such a good life (...)

As a writer or blogger you actually lives a double life!

I've seen some start to write because they can't think. Others write as they think. But thinking before writing works best for me! Thanks Desmond! You have a barrow in the market place! Lol!

It all starts in the head Desmond :)
Thinking a little bit here and there.

Indeed Papi, but unfortunately it sometimes sounds better in our head than reading it on paper.
