Determination: Key Writing Ingredient

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.


Determination is the key to any
writing project. It involves
organizing, allotting necessary
writing time and topic knowledge.

It's determination that will
stir-up your creative process
to start a writing project. It
encourages you to organize.


Organize what you'll need to get
prepared for the writing project.
Pick a writing time, day or night.
Three hours before you begin the day?
Set your alarm clock two hours earlier?
Use the time just for writing. Perhaps,
midnight works better for you? Dusk?

Bring everything you'll need to ignite
your creative process. Don't give yourself
an excuse to leave your writing project.
Need coffee, bring it. Orange juice?

Writing Time

Effective writing requires, at least,
two hours. This means your full attention
must be devoted to writing for no less
than two hours.

If for some reason, your mind drifts- stop.
Stand. Take a deep breath. Let it out slowly
through the mouth. Better? If no, try another
deep breath. Go back to your writing project
when ready.

Topic Knowledge

Topic knowledge demands understanding of the
subject. Topic knowledge, often, means research.
Ask experts.

Do you know someone who have experience with a
topic, lived through it?

A degree or certificate isn't necessary to
qualify one as an expert. A person who works
with a product, used it for years, can qualify
as an expert.

Determination is the key factor to inspire a
look, dig and find in producing writing master-

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
