Tell Your Story as You Begin to Write
While writing, the first hurdle we face is choosing a topic. Many of us go for essay books that are available in the market and try to write on the same things. We even try to emulate the writing style as we tend to think that the essays in these books are examples of acceptable/desired writing styles. Actually when it comes to style, variety is the key. Each one of us have our own ways of playing with languages and are each distinguished by our own ways of dealing with topics. So it is very important to cultivate our own styles rather than adopt someone else’s.
I guess this is why i feel that writing about ourselves is a great way to start. Instead of choosing topics from books, we should just pick up the pen and write about ourselves, our lives so far, our experiences, likes and dislikes and so on. No one knows us better and each of us will have unique opinions on things going on around us. Every person will have his/her own story to tell. In addition to our writing skills getting better, this will also cultivate originality. There is no collection of essays in the market that can write about our lives. Only we can.
