This has been a challenge for me, and I believe is also a great challenge for many writers.
After all writing something that is worth reading is never easy. The web is flooded with so many articles that are either worth spending time to read or a total waste of time to read.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. ~ Ben Franklin
You can write about anything you want, whether fiction, non-fiction, a novel, a short story, a micro-fiction or even a poem, but would anyone read it?
Would anyone spend time, even just 5 minutes to read whatever you have written.
This is what I am struggling with. I am content if there is only one person in the whole wide world who would read my work.
First of all, I would ask myself, how can I get people to read whatever I have written.
I found that most people read my work because they are curious about what I have written. If they love it, they would come back, if not, they won’t.
Secondly, they read my work because I have written something that they can relate to. I don’t know how they relate to whatever I have written but for these people, I do appreciate them for keep coming back to read my writing.
After reading a post on Pick The Brain, I realise the most important tip on how you can write something worth reading is passion. As mentioned in Pick The Brain, writing without passion is a sailboat without wind.
I would say writing without passion is like driving without direction.
Passion in writing is like the food that fuel our life. Without food, we die. Without passion, our writing is dead and definitely meaningless.
So here I am, awake in the middle of the night, struggling to find the words to fill the silent night, hoping for a miracle that I can be a millionaire overnight. I love writing in the middle of the night.
So, is this post worth reading? You decide!
