Everyone Has a Story

Is yours a Comedy or Suspense Novel?

I hear that everyone has a story to tell; everyone is a writer, and because of it, anyone can write a book. What do you think? Would you write a best-selling suspense novel or a child’s book? You see, everyone has a story, but mine is a mystery. Writing a book isn’t as difficult as you may think. It’s a matter of writing down some ideas and outlining specific events in your life. Then you develop the story from your thoughts and key points.

Everyone was born with a talent, some more prevalent than others, but those with the gift of gab or pen can tell engaging stories. The way a person uses his vocabulary makes all the difference in the world. It makes the story come alive for the audience.

With modern technology, it’s so easy to write and publish a book today that avid writers flood the world with novels, publications, and essays. You don’t need previous knowledge. The application does all of the work for you; follow instructions. So, how does that make anyone a professional writer?

Everyone’s story is different. Honestly, when you decide to write a piece, the best topic is the one you know. With any luck at all, it’s the same topic you love to discuss. This is how writers become professionals and how the story unfolds.

You won’t have to dig for the right words or the illustrations. It will come naturally, and the flow will take off like a stream of rushing waters. There’s one thing, however, about writing a story. You must take responsibility for it even if it’s your opinion or based on facts.

Words have power. What you say may influence someone else, so use your words carefully. I find myself repeating statements that changed my life to others in hope the thoughts may have a profound effect on them. It’s a strategy plenty of mentors use to encourage their proteges.

“If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.”– Orson Welles

How to Write?

Since we’re writing about what we know, be candid, and invite inner conversations. I mean, give the reader something to think about. It’s okay to be vulnerable in your writing. Everyone has their own story so everyone can relate to most life’s situations or circumstances, and showing empathy or sympathy can go a long way. It doesn’t make you a weak person contrary to what you may believe. It shows strength. Not only that, but we can connect with others on a different level and, as a consequence, build a healthy relationship.

Writing is more than a verbal act. Since every person has a story to tell, vivid descriptions give people the chance to visualize their own story and set their scenes. Sometimes, writers become inspired by glimpses of images, and another tale evolves before you know it. Or you may see a blog, and it gives a writer the idea for another story that may eventually turn out to be a novel or white paper.

If you decide to publish your works, it could be the start of something. You could find yourself on one of those pages. Once you do that, your goals will change. You will then have to decide your next step to accomplishing them. Remember to set them small or at least make them attainable goals to avoid disappointment.

You know the rules, so without further hesitation, blow the dust off your keyboard and start pounding. Everyone has a story to tell, a lesson to teach, and wisdom to share. There’s someone somewhere in need of your story and lessons or learn to laugh at life and themselves. We must share our knowledge responsibly, and if we can help someone at the same time, you could inspire someone to become a better person, teacher, driver, mother, father, or fellow human being.
