Write Like Leo
There is a belief that there are people with congenital writing talent. Perhaps some humanitarians did better than people with a technical mindset. However, writing skills can be improved and honed and you do not have to be reborn for it.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind no matter what text you are going to write.
Apart from these tips, you should also pay attention to the very tips of Leo Tolstoy which he mentions in his diaries.
Many have heard of Leo Tolstoy's advice for those who want to learn how to write. But did you know that the famous writer once wanted to give up literature?
In the spring of 1859, Tolstoy took a sudden decision to stop writing. After leaving St. Petersburg, he settled in his residence "Yasnaya Polyana". This was the period of the writer's crisis in the life of the genius author. That is how he described his condition: a keen sense of religious and moral impasse.
Hard to believe, but such brilliant authors as Tolstoy can be critical of their works too.
As I came to the village and reread it, turned out to be such a shameful stuff that I can not recover from the shame and it seems I will never write again. But it ("Family Happiness") has already been published.
It is interesting to know how the writer coped with the crisis. The best way for anyone who is faced with creative burnout is a switch on other activities. For example, Leo Tolstoy began to teach peasant children to read and write in school, which was created by himself in his estate.
In fact, Tolstoy renounced literature several times but found the motivation and the strength to return to it, resorting to a method of distraction – teaching and pedagogy.
In conclusion, it is necessary to note: to write well, first and foremost you need patience and practice. If you feel that you are too tired and lost inspiration, try to do something completely different. Tips and advice listed above will definitely help you write a really worth reading work.
