Discover Your Writing Gifts

by Marjorie J ~ . Filed under: Increase confidence in your writing skills.

Each of us has the gift of writing because writing is, after all, telling our stories on paper instead of verbally.  We try to make it much harder than it really is by putting the smoke screen out there that someone might not like what we said on paper and if that happened, how could we take it back. 

Not much different than having a verbal conversation really when you think about it.  In real life the person you are talking to can ask for an explaination to further their understanding.  On paper you need to be more thorough in communicating your idea.  Adding extra information to allow the reader to more clearly understand becomes easier the more you do it. 

There are many different kinds of writing so to help you clarify what type you like the most, I have provided online exercises to help you get a sample of various kinds of writing.  Doing the exercises will help you narrow the choices to find your favorites and allow you to become more creative in developing that area or genre of writing.  You can join me at to discover and experience your writing gift(s). 

Get your writing tools ready and learn to express yourself on paper.  There is something very empowering about writing your ideas down and even more fun when other readers can connect with your point of view.
