Need some suggestions
 
I am one of those people who can write something only when they have something in their mind. But I want to be one of those who can write on any given topic.Please guide me how can I begin.

Why?

very true.. that i am young and it is not possible to know everything.
but then another stream of thoughts starts.. what is more important- experience, imagination, research.. to write on a topic...
Just thinking :-)

You go to Hawaii, and you meet this guy named Eli. He's a young homeless man. And he looks at you and he says,

"My hair is like this, My eyes are like this. My genes are this way and it's all for her. But she isn't here."

Go from there...

Hmm... maybe you should think of your mind as a constant stream of thoughts. Only a few thoughts stick around for a second think. If you have one that sticks around for more rethinking, maybe that's the one to think about. (lol. that was fun to write.)

On a more practical level, you can't have a thought unless it's fed to the mind. So... read, read, read, experience your life, question everything, carry on an internal dialogue with yourself, don't hold back but jump into the unfolding reality in front of you. ie, FEED YOUR MIND! Doing this will overwhelm you with possibilities to write. PS: Don't let other people think for you!

Depends on the type of writing you want to do. Journalism requires an attention to detail, a willingness to research and dogged determination to find the facts. In fiction imagination is probably more important; it's about creating a world your reader can inhabit. But for that world to be authentic you need experience to base your perceptions on.

I personally find writing to be an emotional experience. It's difficult to write a love scene when feeling angry at your spouse.
An accomplished writer once said, 'Keep writing, and don't delete.'
It's not easy but it helps get the words flowing.

Okay, you are now at 5 posts.

So this is the time when you lay your stuff on us, right?

thank you all for your useful tips and suggestions :-)

you have to have passion for writing.

Magealexstra 09-10-2016 12:08 PM

you could take a more practical approach. Just write. There are several free writing approaches to this question that could be valid here. I find that if I have trouble with something. It's better for me to just do it, until I'm good at it.

I have found, the hard way, when I get to the place where I "don't have anything to write about" I write a letter to someone. It's surprising how quickly it will get me back to working on a short story, poem, or whatever. It comes down to getting words on the page. miki

Do yourself a favor and don't start. Instead, get a degree in something profitable. i.e.—Doctor, Lawyer...Indian Chief.
