Ideas for Lockdown – Blog 12: Writing a book?

Writing a book and telling stories go hand in hand in life. As a lot of people have more time on their hands, due to the Lockdown, why don’t we use the time for creative writing and storytelling, that’s what today’s “Ideas for Lockdown” blog is going to be about!

Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

Today’s blog is the twelfth blog in “Ideas for Lockdown” series and is going to be about writing a book and telling stories! Writing a successful book is a dream for so many people across the world, but we never get around to it due to the lack of time that we have in our day to day lives. As the Lockdown has resulted in many people getting a lot more time on their hands, why not try and use the time for writing a book?

Do you want be the next Rick Riordan? Jacqueline Wilson? Jane Austen? You never know what you will be capable of if you don’t try after all!

Writing stories is something that comes so naturally to people, if only they took the time to sit down and put pen to paper. If you give your creativity some time, you will watch the ideas and results flourish, right before your eyes!

One of the best things about writing your own book too is that you get to decide everything. Do you feel like starting to write a short book? You can! If you want to write a longer one? You can too! You get to decide what genre you write too. Do you want to make a horror? A comedy? An adventure? It is your book, the choice is all yours!

On this page I do always like to practice what I preach, as some say, so I started writing my own book too! I am 18,000 words into my first book and am really enjoying it! I find it is a good way to switch off from the world for a little bit and just see where the flow takes you!

If you are concerned if the book is any good or not, ask for some advice too! You can always send a version of the book to a friend and ask them to take a look over it for you, that’s what I did! You know what they say, you never know unless you try! Why not take a few hours out of your day and let your imagination go wild! What’s there to lose?

That’s all I wanted to talk about in today’s, “Ideas for Lockdown” blog! Thank you all for reading, what do you think? Have you ever written a book before? Are you going to start now? Is there a certain genre of books that you like to read? What are you doing to help get yourself through the Lockdown? Is there anything that you want to see me cover on the page! Let me know your thoughts, either in the comments below, or through our Facebook page!

Thank you all for reading and I hope you have a great day!
