I recently found this blog post where a teacher discusses the difficulties of getting her young students to enjoy writing time.
Perhaps you feel the same way. That’s okay! Not everybody enjoys writing. This blog post, however, discusses some tips to make writing more enjoyable. Give some of these tips a try!
Watch this video on writing by Lucy Calkins. Lucy Calkins – author of the Units of Study for Reading and Writing series – offers words of wisdom on how to approach writing tasks to produce the best compositions possible. She discusses revising writing, reading your own writing, paying attention to detail, and other aspects of being a good writer. It’s a really interesting watch!
Whether you’re writing in a notebook, or keeping some lined paper in a folder, decorate it! Make it your own. Decorate or personalize in a way that motivates you to write.
Find a place where you are the most relaxed. Find ways to relax even more: light some candles, spray a relaxing scent, wear comfy pants – whatever it takes. The point is when you associate writing with relaxation, you’re more likely to have a positive view about it.
4. Share It With Others
This is totally an optional step, and if you don’t feel comfortable sharing your writing with others, that’s okay! A great place to share your writing is on a blog site like WordPress. You could even post some of your writing on Wattpad.
Hopefully, these tips will help you to not only enjoy your writing but see improvements with it as well! Do you enjoy writing? What other writing tips did I miss? Let me know in the comments down below!
