Writing

Writing is Hard ?


How does writing tips? Easy but it's hard, hard but it's easy. Yes, writing is tricky because for some people writing is a difficult job, but for some people write has its own pleasure and very easy. Like  a flowing water, a string word by word, sentence by sentence composed woven into a meaning to the rhythm of the mind of the author.

So the first principal of a writer is the willingness and motivation to write. How big is the desire colleagues want to write? why should you write? For whom I write? What would I earn from writing? Without a strong willingness to write and motivation to write, guaranteed all colleagues will never be able to write. So dig a willingness and motivation to write it first. Furthermore, a senior writer says writing takes ambition. Because desire is not enough if only limited without the spirit that drives the desire to write. There are who write for idealism, there are also motivated because business / economic needs, and some people are motivated become a famous. It relies desire and motivation in writing colleagues. So without a strong why, writing feels like work to saturate and difficult.

The second principal in writing is the writing skills (ability to write). Of course, for we have the ability to write requires the exercises. Not only the ability in the language (language writing & journalism) but the ability to observe, examines phenomena s that exist in the brain or mind or feelings in our minds.

So, how tips to write? Very simple, first dig a motivation to write, then dig the idea and gather materials / references / referrals when needed and most importantly, start writing. There is a subtle hint for beginner writers from Stephen King, ” the first failure of a writer is when he first stopped writing.” So keep practicing writing and writing. So simple isn't ? (Drie~)

Know the Types of Articles

writing, articles, know the types of articles, writer, writing world, author

Every day we often read such articles, whether in print or electronic media. This article is different from writing fiction because it is factual (non-fiction), although both have a goal to deliver the message or information from the author, but both have features, characteristics, style, and structure of writing a different language.

The typical structure of the writing of the article usually begins with the background, problem identification, problem analysis and ultimately in the form of conclusions. Although it is not raw but basically have the same structure {no introduction (lead), content (contain), and the closing.
 In broad outline for the article in several types, including:

* Explanative Articles
This article aims to explain the contents of something as clearly as possible to readers, so       readers know, understand    the purpose of the proposed author.

* Descriptive Articles
This article aims to describe (to DESCRIBE) something to the reader.

* Predictive Articles
This article has predictive tap point to the predictions, forecasts, estimates of something in the future.

* Prescriptive Articles
This article has the characteristics emphasize something to the reader to do something.

Distribution of types of article it’s does not mean that in the writing must have certain characteristics of one type of article only, because the articles in the mass media often combining these types. So do not let this kind of division even hinder us in writing, make writing so easy for you, right? (Drie~)

Amazing World of Writing

amazing world of writing, writing, write, author, books, articles

World of writing does have its own magnet for publishers, authors, and readers. For an author, in writing like a world that can be entered by anyone, anywhere, anytime. “ Writing world is limitless job opportunities, like a company that always receives a new employee ”, wrote ELJEHA team (1999) on their article. As an example without having to work in publishing, an author can send his work at any time because publishers basically are happy to receive manuscripts from author. In addition to convey his thoughts (ideas, opinions about various things), writers get the money in cash (when choosing the payment off system), honoraria (for work in the media), royalties  and popularity as well.


Another interesting for a brilliant writer is usually contracted by a publisher to submit their work periodically for writing articles or books. Especially with the development of information technology today, the author can any time to write and so easily to  send data to publishers. Or simply the process as follows Write – Send  and Money was coming.

Furthermore, there are my colleagues who are focused on the world of freelance writing as a profession. He is not tied to any company, not bound by time and work place. His  income obtained from their written works which are sent to publishers. So instead of the limited job opportunities and narrow, that slogan seem does not apply in the world of writing. Very inspiring isn’t it? (Drie~)
