    Sadly, there is a lot of truth to your statement.

    Just write what you want, but first you must read the information about the topic that you want to write. After then, you will have bacsic information and you start to. However, may be the first time, you will see that may be in your paragraph you write will have wrong word or wrong gramma, but you must practice more and more. I believe that you will be a better writer.

    Does anyone see the irony in this post? There seems to be a lot of it going around lately.

    Duh, are you saying practice makes perfect? If so, it seems you need LOTS of practice and you should consult a lexicon when you write, ESPECIALLY when you are expounding upon the subject of how to write.

    I have NEVER seen a GOOD writer that was not FIRST and FOREMOST a voracious READER. Not just about the subject at hand, but about anything and everything. Readers tend to AUTOMATICALLY know about good sentence structure, know about good grammar, and know when something is not spelt rite, oops, correctly.

    When I don't want to write, I start reading something about the topic I want to write an article on.
    Lots of websites, some videos if I can find any on the subject.

    Then I wait for a while, let all that info sink in.

    After a while I start getting desperate to write it all... LOL

    That desperation that you experience is passion. Those who don't have it never make it as writers. Passion and lack of passion is what separates the writers from the want to be writers.

    Rightly said friend! I feel the same about coding too... Would not have lasted over 15 years as a freelance webmaster without that passion.
    I do regret taking down some of my old websites though. Should have kept them alive...

    So true. I would like to work as a copywriter, but I'm afraid that because of my desire and unwillingness to write, that change each other from time to time, I may lose a job.

    As a non native speaker of English myself I can tell you this with utter conviction. If you plan to pursue a career writing in English you need to improve your skill set. Frankly speaking friend, your command of English just plain sucks.

    Nobody "wants" to work. We "have" to work.
    I love coding, really love it. If I don't code up something for 2-3 days, I start feeling as if I am drowning...
    Start loving what you are doing, or do what you love. Will make things a lot more easier for you!

    It is usually hard, but you just have to start and after a while it will go by itself. If not, it’s better not to write anything today.

    If one makes a living by writing or is under contract, then deciding when to write or when not to write may not be an option. Clients usually don't care if you are not in the mood to write. They want their content quickly. If you don't deliver the goods they will go to another writer.

    Hello! There is no good or bad mood for a writer. You are always in the mainstream. The whole thing is that you just give all your mood and thoughts to paper. Even if there are any technical texts, you simply build yourself preliminary notes and diagrams, small drafts, preliminary boards of topics:oops:
