WritingRelatedFridays: An inspirational quote (tip) for aspiring writers

Hello, everyone and good evening to you all. My Writing Related Fridays post is going to be especially short today. I just wanted to place this quote here for all my aspiring fellow poets, writers and bloggers out there. Read the quote below and please let it sink in:

“Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.”
– Barbara Kingsolver 

Even as a writer, I must keep this in mind as well. I believe that this is because once you try to figure out what you think someone might want to hear, you lose your originality and what makes you different from the rest.

Honestly, anyone can become a writer. It greatly depends on how much is their desire to write and what you have to offer.

Author: Angie's Inspiration

My name is Angie Ignacio, I currently live in The Netherlands but I am originally from a very small five (5) square mile island in the Dutch Caribbean called Saba. I enjoy learning new things, meeting new people, dancing, singing, watching anime and reading manga comics. I also enjoy listening to Asian (Japanese, Korean and sometimes Chinese) music. I am trying to learn the Japanese language since I am such a big fan of Japan. I am also a published author of two books a poetry book called I'm Only Human and children's picture book called Baby Toucan.

  1. This reminds me of another quote by a writer that stuck with me, though I don’t recall who it was:
    “Don’t write what you think other people want to read. Write what you want to read.” Or words to that effect.
    Anyway, the two quotes seem to me to be of the same nature. Thanks, Angie!
