I have received some comments asking for writing tips or that I explained how I started writing. I am grateful for this, because it is evidence that I have successfully communicated my thoughts and experiences through my writing. After 7 days without internet I will write about it. What I will do is talk about my experience as a writer on the web. I am not a professional writer, rather I am an amateur. So everything I will say here is based solely on my experience.
Through the following verbs I will try to show what I could call "my creative process" to write. These verbs are selected given the nature of my articles: my life experience in Venezuela, my life as a cook and baker, recipes and also some social and political criticism, and some articles on cryptocurrencies and blockchain. I start.
Lives. That's right, living has been my best writing tool. Before I started writing on Steemit or YOURS, I would have liked to blog on political issues (I always liked politics and social issues) but life took a complete turn at the moment when we really hit bottom in my house and I had than going out to earn a living and bring food to my house. In the end, all those experiences have helped me to have topics to write about. I am a little embarrassed, because, on several occasions I directly asked for money because my financial situation is not easy (I have come to receive insults and accused of being a beggar), however, I did not give up and I was learning to write better and enhance my experiences of life through my writings.
Read. When I was a teenager I had the habit of reading. I read several political and social books. Although I have lost that habit, it has helped me to have a certain style when it comes to writing. Also, to get an idea of how my articles should be written and to express each idea and thought.
Investigate. Many of my articles on Steemit are recipes for which I should have investigated the origin of some dishes, I like to know the origin and why of things and transmitting that to me is important. Also, I had a good article about the war in Syria and it is important to cite reliable sources to give credibility to your arguments.
Feel. In my articles I always feel what I say, either because I have had a bad time or because some recipe causes me some emotion. Many times before writing, I listen to music that brings me closer to the emotions I want to express in my article or music that locks me in my head and just being able to write.
To write. Write, write and write. Many times I write just to drain my feelings, other times I like to think about something and write what I think about it. But, you will never know how you count your ideas and thoughts if you do not write it. Let those fingers flow on the keyboard!
