ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: Reading leads to writing – Be your best self – #SmashYourCeiling, change starts from within -Business & Lifestyle Experimentation for #TheWomanAlchemist


Hello everyone!

Welcome back!

Time flies and today we will be exploring the art of writing!

It has been two weeks since the launch of my new book, Gabrielle, and again, I am overwhelmed by the support from my fans, friends, and fellow ladies. I know that many of you have questions, and there has been quite a bit of discussion regarding the change that happens to our lead character – but, unfortunately, I can’t discuss too much here without revealing spoilers for those who are still mid-way through, or yet to get started on it.

However, you can still purchase the book, if you haven’t already, directly from moi, simply by clicking here.

As this, is the month of the writer, with the NaNoWriMo tag being thrown around on everything – it does inspire us to write novels of our own.

As a published author, I can tell you first-hand that writing begins with reading.

So, pick up a book, and start there. That is tip number one!

Of course, I am not one to stop there, so here are a few more tips to get you started on your writing journey.


To write

To write, most certainly, begins with passion. But experience and judgement also play a vital role in the authenticity of your work.

Begin by writing what you know. And believe me, writing what you know could be anything, from a simple recipe to a gardening hack. It could be about the best times to call for a taxi in a quiet suburb, or the way you’ve dealt with a difficult neighbour.

Writing is powerful, as it is from within you.

And that power can be unleashed only when you listen to yourself.

So, to begin here is a prompt for you to get you started. Think of the first five things that you absolutely love to do.

List them.

Now try compile a short story (even if it is just a page) about how you would do all five of those things in one day.

Try to write by hand, rather than on a laptop, and whatever comes to mind, without thinking of grammar, etc. In the industry, this is known as freewriting.

Trust me, you’ll be surprised by the result.

I will follow this writing tip blog post with another before this month is up, so be on the lookout for it.

All the best, and happy writing!

See you soon x
