False Poets????

surprised-man-looking-at-his-left_1149-1195

Yes…Believe it or not false poets are out there but we are often so caught up in our own little worlds that they become invisible.

But the questions is ‘Who is a false poet/writer?’

A person who….

Hahaha thought I was going to tell but I want you all to find that out for yourself. Drop your comments below.

Moving on…. lets get to juicy part of things

Ways in which a person can be seen as a false poet/writer

Stealing the works of others –  In other words PLAGIARISM!!!! demeaning the value of someone else’s work by claiming that its your own without even giving any credit to the author. My! I wonder how people do it and still feel good about themselves hmmmm.

Another thing is writing just to impress someone. Maybe you don’t think you are talented enough to write a piece of your own but if you take another person’s work source it!!

Stealing ideas

Writing anything that comes to mind and calls it art just for the money – This commonality isn’t just opened to poets but writers as well get caught up too. You could be a poet but putting numbers on a page and calling it a poem is ridiculous. Then again you could be a writer and binding blank pages with no cover and calling it a book is even worst all in the name of art. This certainly isn’t fooling anyone but yourself.

Money shouldn’t be your ultimate goal when writing but embracing your art and adding value to people lives should matter more. Its not all about the money young writers!!!

Yes after putting in tons of hard work you would want to see some monetary returns but don’t let rise to your head.

Money

 

 

The Rich overusing their power –  This point may turn some heads but its a fact. The ‘High Class’ people as some may say, misuse their power just to make a name for themselves. But how is that fair to the people who are actually working hard and trying to live their dream. Not because your family may be billionaires or have a well recognized name gives anyone the right to overuse that power when the area you are forcing isn’t your field of expertise. Its not just unfair but wrong to the persons who toil day in and day out to honestly make a difference in this world.

What were the first writing tools?

The best part of moving forward is being able to remember where you came from and value that history. Which brings me to today’s topic “What were the first writing tools?”

As young writers we are so inclined to create the next best seller that we often forget how important roots are. Be reminded that learning of the past will keep your mind opened to possibilities and realities of what made the past so iconic.

Imagine if there were no tools to write the world’s greatest ideas? What if those ideas were forgotten and never recorded in history?

Thats how important writing tools were to history and they still are to present day. Even though educationally inclined people have created more advanced ways of documenting there complete oeuvres manual tools have stood the test of time. 

Around 3000 BC the scribes were the first to use thin reed brushes to write on papyrus scrolls.

As the times aged the Romans used a metal stylus in which they scribed into thin sheets of wax.

It was until in the 1790’s pencil lead was invented by the Australians and French. After a great amount of Technological advances roller ball pens that were invented in the 1980’s preformed with improvements as time aged.

I believe that opening one’s self to such inspiring information is important when as a young writer you are sharing your work to give feeling and motivation to the readers.

Writer to Poet

Can a writer be a poet?

Can a poet be a writer?

These two questions have been asked so many times by countless young writers that I think it’s my duty to educate my young talented readers on the difference between these two statements based on my own knowledge.

A “writer” is the basic term used to define a person that creates written language. They can produce works from literary art to creative writing to communicate a desired idea. Other skilled writers would use graphics and illustrations to enhance the way there work is showcased to the audience.

Being a writer means you have a desire to open a world of possibilities, opportunities, comfort, learning and much more to readers through written words. Most times there is a burning light within to add excitement using various techniques that trap the mind. But the big question is can a writer be a poet? In my opinion not every writer has the ability to concisely arrange there thoughts to paint a picture, create a mood and unravel real emotions that a poet can, not to say that writing a novel doesn’t create this feeling because it does. Which brings me to a type of writer called ‘novelist’ one who writes novels create plots, invent characters and resolutions that keep the mind engaged throughout. This form of writing stands unique to play writes, screenwriters, speech writers, biographers, editors, researchers, journalist, bloggers and the list goes on. Each of these individuals have specific fields of specialty but generally they are considered writers. In which they can use these talents in different areas and obtain a desired effect on the audience.

On the other hand a poets would describe themselves as a mere writer of poetry that would simply performs their art in front of an audience. They have the ability to make you dream, fantasize and analyze by just using a few words divided into stanzas. They create cognitive effects, exploiting properties and languages to give a cinematic vision in your mind. Can a poet be a writer?  This goes half and half since with the right techniques and expanded vocabulary a poet can create a very mind blowing novella. Many would say that writing a poem is ‘hard’ because of the time taken to create the a specific mood and exhort the correct tone but just like fiction writers with the right use of words in each line, a poem or novel can stand out just the same.

I hope this article shines some light on any blurred lines that you may have about these two questions. Follow this blog for more articles like this

Back To The Basics Of Writing

Hi readers and writers seeing that our opening post was a welcome and invitation to get started with this blog let’s get down to business and solve the task at hand.

Since the purpose of this blog is to advise young writers there steps to writing better in there various areas of interest, it only seemed best to commence your learning at a common topic “The Art of Writing”.

What is a piece of writing?

Written material done by a writer that describes their considered style and vision.

The Art of Writing is all in what you think and feel. Writing a book is not all about just using words that make sense but it’s about using attractive words and deep thoughts, expressing your deepest fears and fails into words and thoughts that make a person. The art of writing exposes your character and who you really are inside.

Think about why a person writes. Someone once told me “If you wake up in the morning an all you want to do is write then you’re a writer”

Many times we all struggle with believing in ourselves but just a little nudge every now and then would help the cause. 

I believe everyone has an inner talent of writing but it takes a dedicated mind and heart to go beyond what they can feel and write about it.

“Just be you at everything you do”
