Amateur Mindset V Professional Mindset

“Professional Amateur Keys Show Beginner And Experienced” by Stuart MilesYou've probably heard it before that our thoughts control our lives.

Everything that happens to us depends on what we’re thinking.

So where is your mind when it comes to your writing?

Do you have an amateur mindset or a professional mindset?

Are you planning to work as a professional writer or do you just think that if you write enough pretty words you’ll make money…somehow?

Being a Professional Writer

All successful writers have a blog (or website) and they use social media to grow their audience, get attention and spread their message.

And if you want to do the same you firstly need to have a clear message.

You need to know what it is that you’re trying to say.

And once you know what your message is, you need to get it across clearly.

When you first begin a blog, you only need to get your message across clearly, not perfectly.

Don’t wait for perfection before publishing online because clarity always trumps perfection.

If you’re still unsure what your message to the world is, then try and think of what your worldview is.

Every great writer has a worldview.

To find yours, just ask yourself what is it that bothers you that needs to be fixed?

What problem fascinates you?

Once you know your worldview then you’ll know the audience you’re trying to reach and exactly who you're talking to.

And if you’re still unsure of your worldview, ask the 5 people closest to you to describe you in 3 words or 3 short phrases.

You’ll be surprised what others know about you that you’ve never noticed yourself.

And it doesn’t matter if you want to write fiction or non-fiction. Your worldview will be visible in your writing whether you know it or not.

So it’s better if you know exactly who you’re writing to and what it is that you want to say.

Because that is what writers with a professional mindset do.
