YOUR WRITING MENTOR

Creative/Fiction writing trainings

Everyone can be a writer, but not everyone can be an author.

What's the difference? Well, a writer is someone who writes whether they are published or not. An author is someone who is published.

Not all authors are passionate about writing. For some, being an author is all about collecting a pay cheque. However, writers are passionate about writing. They write regardless of being published. They write because they are compelled to do so and can't imagine living in a world where they don't write.

Whether you're a writer or an aspiring author, it's a mistake to think that good writing just happens, or that you don't need to learn to learn the craft in order to produce quality content or manuscripts.

Have you ever downloaded a book from Kindle and been shocked at the quality of the writing? The plot holes? The bad spelling? The cringeworthy grammar? The characters you couldn't care less about?

 

Bad writing sticks out.

 

The truth is, creative writing is about more that just getting words down on the page. It's about structure and criticism and ongoing development. Writing fiction creatively is like painting a picture with words. It's an artform that requires some level of instruction or training, especially if your goal is to become a published author.

More importantly, publishers and agents expect your work to be high standard before sending it to them.
