6 tips for your writing trip

6 tips for your writing trip

So would you like to be a writer? Congratulations! Writing is not only a great way to express yourself, but it can provide you with an income. Keep in mind that not all writers make a fortune, some still cannot quit their daily work.

1. Start writing

Well, then this advice is obvious. For some, it is a matter of what to write, for others how to write. Write how and what you want. Fiction, Mystery, science fiction, how to make books? How about articles, reports, maybe you are interested in journalism? Whatever the case, for your creative juices to flow, start writing! Do not worry about how it sounds, grammar or other errors, you can fix them again.

2. Join online and offline groups 

If you already know what you want to write about, consider joining groups of writers at your local library, or online groups, along with message boards and chats. It is an excellent way to establish contacts with other writers and published authors. It is also a good place to share your work and receive comments. Many places online are free, some require a membership that usually consists of a username, email address and password for your username. Some request more information, such as a name, address and sometimes a phone number.

3. The library

You've probably heard about some books that writers refer to, this could be writers markets, e-book publishing, desktop publishing and, in general, how to improve your writing. But what do you do when you can't buy these books at your local bookstore or online? A trip to your library is the key. Many libraries have resource books for writers, which if you have a library card, are free. If you live outside the area, the library may require a membership fee. The book you are looking for may not always be in your local library, however, libraries borrow from other libraries in and out of state. The method of receiving external books is called a loan between libraries. Later, if you think the book is a great resource, you can buy a used copy online.

4. Investigating

Internet is also another good resource for information. Keep in mind that not all resources you find online will be a good honest resource. It will take time to resolve which websites are useful. Most of the information is free, so you can sit back and investigate in the comfort of your home. If you don't have a computer with Internet access, check your local library and see if you can use one of them.

5. Workshops

The workshops taught by experts are an excellent way to learn from professionals, but only if you can afford it! Make sure the theme of the workshop is based on your interest. For example, if you love fiction ... it would not be a good idea to go to a workshop based only on nonfiction. It is a good idea to register early to secure a place at the event. Bring a new legal notebook, plus some writing tools to take notes.

6. Contents

After writing a moment, you may want to enter content. Some require an entrance fee. I suggest you stay away from the content of the registration fee until you have entered some other free ones. That way, you can get an idea of   how contests work. Take some time to write and rewrite your entries. If you have written your entry in approximately 5 minutes, the judges will notice immediately. You will not want a reputation for careless work.
