Do you want to be a writer?

Becoming a writerHow to become a writer

Do you yearn for long days in front of the laptop or with a paper and pen? Or do you feel like you just have to write? Is it something that is in you and needs to come out regardless? 

If you know what you want to do but don’t know how to start, then this website is for you. Hopefully I can take you through the, sometimes troubled, ultimately rewarding journey that is writing for yourself.

Take note of those last three words – writing for yourself. If you write for other people or because you want to be rich and famous, then it just won’t be the same. Not in the final result of a manuscript or in how you feel about it.


Write from the heart. Write because you need to. Write because nothing else matters.

If you don’t know where to start I have a few tutorials on the left here that will help to get you going. There is help on how to get started as a writer or novelist, how to get your book published and technical notes on grammar that everyone gets in a pickle about.

Just a couple of notes before I let you get started. Firstly, the more you read, the more it will equip you to write. It doesn’t matter what the subject matter happens to be every genre is useful. Secondly, always have some sort of notebook with you (including at night). I’ve lost count of the times a perfect turn of phrase or idea will come to me and it’s gone in the blink of an eye (sorry about the cliché!). Finally, just write and write and write and write. The more you practise a craft, the better you will become.

Happy writing
