In all the writing I do, I’ve puzzled out that there are six basic steps – not just for changing the world through writing, but for writing in general.
So I wrote up a present for you! And asked Pace to make it pretty (and to help me with formatting this post for you).
This is a no-catch, easy-to-get, free downloadable ebook for you to snag, read, and share with whomever you like.
I poured my heart into it; I hope it touches yours.
The Six Steps to World-Changing Writing
First and foremost, you need to write. After all, you can’t change the world with your writing if you don’t write anything. We’ll show you how to develop a writing practice that works well for you and allows your words to flow.
2. Find your voice.
Next, you’ll need to find your voice. The best writing – the writing that deeply connects with readers and changes the world – is done in authentic, clear, strong voices. Everyone has a voice. We all have our own style, our own perception, our own way of sharing what we experience. Even if you have stories that feel like they’ve already been told, the way you will tell them is unique.
3. Find your audience.
Next, you’ll need to find your audience, since you can’t be a world-changing writer if no one reads your writing. Luckily, finding your voice will help attract your audience to you, and we’ll show you how to make that happen.
4. Find support.
You’ll need support. You need a supportive environment that will lift you up, make you laugh, help you reconnect with the world you’re working so hard to make better. What kind of support? Friends and peers, a solid routine and programs to get your writing done, a place to write, comfort, and safety. We’ve got each of those covered.
Next comes growth. Growing provides a constant stream of life experiences to write about, while constantly stretching your edges. If you’re growing, you’re fully living your life – if you stagnate, you’re prone to bouts of writer’s block, depression, even unhelpful navel-gazing. In order to grow, you need to read, learn, engage, and experience, and we’ll help you find ways to integrate growth into your writing practice and your life.
6. Set your intention.
Lastly, you need to set your intention. You’re here, and you’ve read this far. That already says volumes about the strength of your intention. All the learning and growing, all the writing, all the support in the world won’t make you a writer. It won’t make you a world-changer.
Here’s where you can get the whole cookie!
Yes, I know it’s usually the whole enchilada, but I prefer cookies. Sweet, sweet cookies.
I wrote way more about each of these steps. I told stories about them. And I found awesome, awesome pictures to accompany them.
This is just the tip of the iceberg! So (and now I’m mixing metaphors), to get the whole cookie, all you have to do is click here. Download it.
Read it. Share it (if you want).
Easy as pie (yet another metaphor; it’s getting messy in here)!
I hope it brings you much writer-y goodness!
