  1. Your talent (if it exists) must learn to curb and direct in a certain direction. No one will teach you the craft of writing. Neither Lev Tolstoy nor Fyodor Dostoyevsky were taught by their teachers how to write, they only taught them how to place punctuation marks, but neither of them heeded their teachers and placed these signs as God would have it.

    You must somehow organize your literary process. First, set yourself very simple genre tasks: “Today I will write a small children's fairy tale, where there are only three characters – a donkey, a cat and a pig.” And write it and see what happens. Tomorrow, write a little mystery story with vampires, the reanimated dead, and terrified children. Try all genres from slapstick guignel to bloody military action, from sitcom to space utopia. See what you do best and what exactly you like to write yourself. And gradually, of course, an understanding will be formed-what to write, how to write and to whom to address everything written. Remember – absolutely all writers organized themselves and did not ask anyone for advice.

  2. It is believed that during a dinner in the company of friends, Hemingway offered a bet – “he is ready to compose a short story that would have a beginning, climax and denouement, if each of the participants puts $ 10 on the line.
    He won the bet by writing on a napkin:
    “Children's shoes are being sold. Unworn”
    True, today the authorship is disputed, but it doesn't matter.

    Writing is just as much a craft as anything else.
    He needs to learn. There are different schools. For example, a journalist is a quick writer. It is important to decide on the genre. Collect information on the topic, be able to work with archives. Create your own file of facts with an indication of the original source.

    At the same time, you say correctly – You need to write about something, and not stupidly dirty the paper.
    We need to look for themes, plot conflicts, despite the fact that as you know, there are only 36 of them in the theater. �
    You need to communicate with people, many of them have interesting stories, but they don't know how to write.
    I'm one of them. I started my acquaintance with this site with the question:
    Not a single person responded.

  3. Just get started, and in the process you will understand what works and what doesn't, what you should work on and what you should leave as it is. Since neither writing nor any other art form has definite boundaries and limits, everyone expresses themselves and their vision, the main thing is to express, and the rest will direct and “carve”itself. And yes, find a couple of people who understand this, do not hesitate to show your work. Criticism is the engine of progress.

  4. Here you need the idea itself. Even if a person has a very competent literary style, what else can you put by studying someone else's literature and honing the art of transferring thoughts to paper, but no one will teach him how to come up with the plot itself. The plot itself often appears in my head during the process of writing a work. Here the main thing is just to start, and then something should go by itself.

  5. You can write about anything. If you say that you have a good imagination and inspiration, then fantasize and be inspired. Even a lint on the rug, even a handprint on the window, you can be inspired by everything. Write about how you feel, let the flow of words carry you further and further, gradually unraveling the tangle of thoughts that are tangled in your head. Write about some event from the past that has affected you and other people. Write about what you think of other people. The main thing is that you are interested. If you're not interested in reading fiction, it's unlikely that anyone else will like it. And show, share with people, look for criticism, at first it is very important.

  6. The writer usually �collects material �and studies �some �theme �is a profession that is also �can help �in writing .Chekhov was a doctor in addition to writing, for example. I was” aware of “diseases” of that time. This” was useful to him ” in writing the story “Belated Flowers” and not only.
