- WE READ ALOT: It isn’t new to us that the best writers read alot. What I love to do when I’m not writing is read, Not just Educational, Non fiction, Memoirs but I also love a good novel, poem and magazine. Readers tend to have low level of stress, have a sharper memory, think more culturally and Exercise and most of all reading helps to expand our Vocab. The difference between a hobby reader and a Writer when we find new vocabs is that we tend to write them down, check them in the dictionary and starting making use of them. In this case curiosity keeps the cat very expressive, empathetic and sharp.
- WE ARE ALWAYS TAKING NOTES: I think I am really guilty of doing this. My Notes contain my raw and genuine thoughts.Most times these thoughts come when i am seeing a movies, reading a book, listening to music, in the shower or simply taking a walk. I take notes either in my note book or on the Note app in my phone Or in situations when I can’t write those ideas because my hands are busy… I make voice records or notes.
- WE ARE TOO HARD ON OURSELVES: This is also known as imposter syndrome, that feeling when you are not sure about what you are doing but everyone else looks at you like an expert and you’ve got everything on point and this leaves you feeling like you are about to exposed as a fake or a fraud👻. Yea it’s terrifying and feels real but its just a fiction. Generally about 70% of people experiences Imposter syndrome but for writers you are stuck with it forever😵, talk about being married to insecurities💀. The thing is You experience this when you are out of your comfort zone and yea you step out of your comfort zone whenever you are a writer who is growing and putting your work out to be viewed, critiqued and judges … Because the more you grow, the bigger your goals and the bigger your fears/doubts.
4 . WE THINK TOO MUCH: Our minds are super crazy and we tend to think about almost everything or even analyze the craziest things. We are the ones who will sit and Observe not in a weird way though. This helps us understand people more and also leads to empathy which helps us connect and relate when we write.
