I get asked all the time, how do I get started if I want to write. I have no magic words but I do have some suggestions.
1.Why do you want to write--passion or hobby or you have a story you want to tell?
2. What's the story you want to tell and why?
3. Whose your audience--who would be interested in reading your story?
4. Is your story fiction or nonfiction?
6. Is your story a memoir?
7. Can you make the time to write?
8. Can you accept feedback--the good and the bad and make changes to improve your story?
9. Do you have the patience to write even when you hit a roadblock?
10. Sit down and write.
