1. Know how to read.
2. Know how to write.
(The best part is that if you’re reading this now, that means you’ve got at LEAST step one completed.)
3. Get a piece of paper, and a pencil. You don’t need complicated, expensive software. That’s all you need.
4. DO IT.
Seems too simple, doesn’t it? Guess what, I’m going to let you in on a little secret:
IT IS THAT EASY.
Everything else that you need to know, you will learn through practice, trial and error, and a little bit of research every now and again. But the very first thing you need to do? Commit yourself to it. If you truly, TRULY want to write? There is nothing in this world, no force on Earth, that will hold you back.
Take it. It’s yours.
