    writing is hard. dipping your finger into hot butter is even harder.

    Just because your brother didn't like it it doesn't mean your writings shit. You can get imagination and inspiration from things around you and from the things you like and enjoy or even the things you hate

    well my first rule is not writing from first person unless you are some splendid author.

    i really think i could, tbh i can't show my work because what i write is in french but i never have "technical" problems
    i know how to express myself well but i have no ideas
    whenever i have at school a story to write on a defined subject i get 20/20

    you're so lucky
    i've never had cool shower thoughts, i just think about my problems and how will i detangle my hair

    to be honest, just reading helps a lot. and the only thing after that is compiling up a playlist and getting yourself cake and eating and writing violently

    then get a small notebook or an app and write every idea you stumble upon. Might be useful, you can write interesting things too. Then you can look after few days and decide if they are worth continuing or not.

    like other's have said, you're brother may not have liked it but that doesnt mean it was bad. besides sometimes brother's just tease there siblings he may not have been serious.

    what was that short story about?

    start by searching up writing promopts those can be very helpful for beginner writers as they find what intrests then and melds with their writing style

    or some people like to write continuations of their dreams

    good luck :)

    Think of things that inspire you, it helps me being in a place that is at home, park, or a library. Just think about the topic first and then go from there.

    I don't know if I can help or give you good advice, but I usually have two approaches.
    The first approach is taking one word or one object, and just analyzing/thinking about everything that may relate to it.
    The second approach usually happens when I'm doing something that's somewhat mundane such as driving, walking, working out. I'll think of a topic or think back to an experience I had, and think about how differently it could've gone or an alternative ending to it.
    Try it :)
    But, don't let anyone determine how good your writing is.
    As long as you can take your thoughts and feelings and put it onto paper, that's you. It's your mind that you're reflecting onto the paper (or screen), so don't get discouraged. All writing pieces are beautiful in its own way.

    Hunter S. Thompson claimed he learned how to write by copying the Great Gatsby several times. I have been working as a writer at 12HoursEssay writing service for 7 years and I can say that many authors did not intend to be writers, they had other careers, but something compelled them to write.

    my advice is to read a lot
    once you read a lot of stories you like you'll understand what you like and what kind of subjects you like and find entertaining
    then you can write about those things
    i was always reading fantasy romance so that's what i started writing. i write stories that are like the ones i like but with my own storylines and done my own way

    do agree, before writing, the most important thing is reading
