You don’t have to write a book to be a writer
It is said that everyone has a book inside them but what if you simply don’t have that elusive book just screaming to get out? However, you may well have some great bite-sized stories or anecdotes you would love to tell and share but just lack the confidence to get scribbling. So why not get started writing with the help of iScribbles.
What will your legacy be?
Do you want to write about your life and experiences or have you been researching your family history and want to share it with others? Do you like reminiscing about the ‘good old days’ or are you the main source of family stories and anecdotes? Are you a local history enthusiast who would like to start creating some articles for publication? Are you a keen traveller who likes visiting new places and telling people all about it? Have you celebrated or experienced a special day or event that you would like to share with family and friends? These are just some of the reasons why people just like you are inspired to write.
You are not aiming for the best-seller list
Although your stories may not end up being best sellers (in fact they may only ever be read by friends and family) they are just as important. It is these personal stories that in the future will provide a unique and valuable insight into how we ‘ordinary’ people lived.
May be you could write a book
OK, so at the moment you don’t think you could possibly write a book but think about it – your bite-sized scribbles could provide the building blocks for a full-length book.
It’s never too soon to start writing
Perhaps you have been thinking about writing for some time but have come up with a whole heap of reasons why it’s not the right time to start. But now is the time to get started writing – so stop making excuses and get scribbling. You won’t regret it.
