LOWER YOUR STANDARDS AND KEEP GOING

By On 20:53:00
As a member of YALI West Africa, I remember taking a course on Greenhouse Effect and its direct consequence, global warming which melts the ice caps, and 'flooding' happens, which overwhelms us.
 
I shared a few lessons, but sadly we often don't take things the way they are, rather we take them the way we perceive them until evident impacts arise.

As a writer, you always have two situations beckoning on your attention. One tells you to start writing; the other tells you that your writing may not be good enough.

“There is no such thing as writer’s block for writers whose standards are low enough.”
-William Stafford

Would you rather let your ice caps melt and flood you off the shore? Remember that sharks are real. You may never return onshore to correct your mistake.

Whether you write or not, you are right. But when the heat of guilt strikes you on having left undone what you would have done to help humanity, you will start even under heat.

What's that fear that grips you about starting out to write?
Fear of failure?
Fear of not being able to sustain writing?
Fear of grammar?
Fear of construction?
Fear of competition?

Perhaps you think you don't have anything new to write about, which has not been written already.

A child cannot walk without toddling.

Just write, and gradually get better at it. 

You are good enough as a writer, now.

DEALING WITH WRITER'S BLOCK

By On 14:13:00

Every writer once suffered or would suffer Writer's Block.

Just as the bra firmly straps the mammaries to ransom, so does the writer's source of flow get strapped and cocooned from creativity.

You may not readily create content in that state. But you certainly can.

When you are unable to produce content, you just have to be confident, then robe yourself with DETERMINATION.

"Planning to write is not writining. Outlining…researching…talking to people about what you're doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing." - E.L. Doctorow

Determine to write, then write.

One of the problems you may have about starting to write is that you want to write what people will read and applaud. You do not want to appear vague and unusual to your readers. It is normal for a writer to want to feel approved by his readers. But the truth is, you do not become a writer by being an expert. You rather become and expert by writing.

"A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit." - Richard Bach

If your audience want to read what they would love, then they go ahead and write it. And even if they do, critics will always have a role to play. You could be one.

Just know this:

"Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer." - Barbara Kingsolver

As a writer, you are a creator. The users of creation only make do with what has been created.

Just get started already, start creating a word, then a phrase, then a sentence. Hone your ingenuity to a flow, but be ready to suffer the disease of creators. Be ready to become creatively constipated when the flow begins.

Write about anything. Think of a problem and write about the solution. Write about just anything imaginable. Free yourself of distractions, take a walk, go for a run, chat with people, listen to serene lyrics, write a letter, look at the news, see movies, write in simplest of words what your core message is; that's a filthy draft that will spur you.

Ideas are embedded in those.

Writers are ruthless and shameless! If you're too careful about what to write and how you write, you may find writing very complex and miss the mark, hence the block. Be liberal, write the unusual, and gradually carve a niche for yourself.

If this has helped you, do share your thoughts.

RANTINGS OF A LETTERED MIND by Emeka Nobis

RANTINGS OF A LETTERED MIND
By
Emeka Nobis
84 pp.

In life, thoughts are real and are continual occurrences. We live to think. Thoughts fill us and direct our beings.

We encounter life amidst random views. We think we got it right, or perhaps they did.

We roam in our realms of musings and we wonder how thoughts resemble and differ. Yet the world hangs on the lines of the products of our thoughts.

Every man has his thoughts about anything that be. How one uses them defines ones life to some extent.

RANTINGS OF A LETTERED MIND is a random collection of the thoughts that roam the minds of men on a daily basis. It hinges on the things that go through our minds, the way we perceive life and to what extent we wield control over the events of our lives and career.

Emeka Nobis did it again as he always did, structuring and lacing his words in beautiful draping that fingers our minds.

If you want to master your thoughts and stay in control of what your life churns out, then get this book.

GROW YOUR PLATFORM by Emeka Nobis

GROW YOUR PLATFORM 
by 
Emeka Nobis
61 pp.

Everyone in the world has need for solutions to the problems that plague life. Even the most successful people thrive because they find help around. 

By getting solutions to the problems of life, from those who can offer them, you grow to be able to offer same to those who need them to grow. That's the growth cycle.

Many touch lives daily, yet fail to grow. By the simple act of touching lives, you exude growth. And as a contributor to growth, it must not elude you.

The growth you need, and the wealth you crave for are all in the hands of people around you. Keep them, and you have all of it.

Create and sustain a community of like minds. That's a tool in the making of your kingdom, discovering your core message, offering your gifts to humanity to an escalated proportion, and growing sustainable wealth.

To many who do great stuff, and those who hope to break bounds, GROW YOUR PLATFORM would be an insightful tool-in-hand.

If you're looking to grow a formidable community that will promote your works and grow your brand and wealth, then GROW YOUR PLATFORM is a must-have.
