You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit mikesententia.com.
I started this blog two years ago today, and I’m so glad I did. It’s exposed me to new ideas (thanks for the comments, everyone), and I’m better at writing and explaining magick because of it.
If you’ve thought about blogging, but you’re worried you don’t write well enough yet, here’s my advice: Get started. No one wrote well at first, except for professional authors, who already went through the pain of learning to write in books. The way to solve that problem? Write, get a friend to give you feedback, and write more.
Also, thank that friend for giving you real feedback instead of empty encouragement like “Looks great.” They risked making you upset and put in honest work because they care about you.
Don’t believe me? Check out my first few posts. They’re awful. Each one took me hours to write.
Two years later, I’m somewhere around decent. A “non-bad writer.” Which is really all you need for non-fiction.
You can do it, too. It’s just a matter of putting the time in.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
