Becoming a Writer

Once you’ve been a speaker for long enough you may decide that you need to move on from becoming a speaker and share your thoughts invoice with the masses. But you also may be wondering how you can do the transition from speaking to people to becoming a novelist or a best-selling nonfiction writer. And you should you should be able to share your insight and your wisdom.

But now you may be wondering how you can go from becoming a speaker and putting your words into current.

Step One

My first suggestion on transitioning from speaking to writing is to learn the right and craft. Find books that will educate you about writing styles writing technique improper grammar. One really good when a shrunken whites elements of style. While it may be a book that people Scott fat at school, it has the most important grammar that you will need in order to write a book. I’m not saying that you have to be the best writer in the entire world in order to be a successful writer, but you have to be able to express yourself in a way that people can read it.

Even the greatest editors of the world can’t edit garbage.

Step Two

Once you’ve mastered some really basic techniques on writing styles, which you may have even learned in school but everyone needs to brush up on, you only need to be able to formulate your ideas and a cohesive manner. The easiest way to do this is to form an outline. If you’ve been a rockstar inspirational speech or for students for quite a while, you should have some kind of PowerPoint presentation or some kind of outline that you follow even if it isn’t written down when you address the students and to perform a speech.

It may be easiest just to use the outline that you’ve been using for your speeches as the outline for your book or even if you just want to be a blog writer use it as an outline for that. You’ll have your introduction you’re about yourself page or chapter in your book. You’ll have the background of why you were speaker and how you got into what you’re speaking about.

When you decide that you want to sit down and write make sure that you were in a quiet location with this few distractions as possible. Some writers find the coffee shops are the easiest place to do this, because they do not commonly have television sets and there usually quiet environment her to the lake to drink their coffee and read our quietly socialize. Another location would be a library. Or even if you’re trying to write when this in the summertime you could do it in a park or somewhere outside that is nice and quiet. Of course easy’s place would be to do it at your own home, but you have to make sure that you were away from the usual distractions of your electronics. Do not turn on the TV do not turn on social media, and if you have children, I would be ideal to get your writing done when they are otherwise occupied or sleeping.

Some good tools to have when you start writing would be the method that you want to write. People find out laptops or regular tower computers, are the easiest to type on of course. Some people do you like to stick with the traditional paper and pen method, but you are going to have to transcribe that onto computer in order submit it so that it can be published and be formed into a regular book. So I would really recommend that you start a rating on a computer first and not have to transcribe it from paper onto a computer later.

Do remember that everyone has their own voice and writing and how you rate is not necessarily going to be the same as how anyone else is going to write. We still need to be able to communicate effectively and do it so that other people will be able to understand you, but use your own voice. While it is tempting to try to emulate others, you have to be able to stay true to yourself as well or it may not wind up making sense or come out of smoothly as it would otherwise.

Communicating with Students

So you have decided that you want to write for teenagers. But the question is how can you interact with the teenager when you’re not when? Sure you think that hey I’ve been a teenager once myself, but it’s really not that easy. While we have all gone through the teen years communicating with the teens of today as well as remembering what it felt like as a teenager, can actually work against you. What you’re missing is that once you get beyond that hormone fueled stage of your life, you’ve learned from your mistakes and can look back and see the error of your ways as a teenager. The teenagers are in the throes of it and they don’t understand how they will come out the other side. So when you’re writing to motivate teenagers or speak to teenagers another plane of existence, you have to consider how they feel that their motions well silly to us, are extremely real to them.

arabic-class-for-grade-1Step One

The first thing that you need to do when you’re going to dress teenagers, is understand that the stereotypes that you have heard, while you might feel are accurate, are not how they feel about themselves. There is some kind of assumption that is been going around for years probably deck it’s really the teenagers are lazy they don’t work as hard as the people that came before them and they have no idea what real hard work is. People seem to view teenagers as playing video games all day hanging out with friends and absent from what the idea is to work hard. But you have to understand that teenagers do you like to work heard they just need to be motivated to do it. And the motivation to do it is often misunderstood by adults. Kids need more incentive than just a little bit of cash or some kind of video games or some price if they win for being good, that’s just really not how works. You have to inspire them to look further then their monetary things. Look toward the future, look toward helping people and becoming successful adults. Teenagers want to feel significant and they want you to show that you care about them and how they feel. A lot of the problems that they suffer from today is because their emotions and needs are not being addressed as a priority.

Step Two

When you’re writing for teenagers you have to understand that they want to have their say and be able to make decisions in their own lives. They do not like to be told what to do they like to be given the option to make the responsible choice. In writing this means that if you’re addressing the teenagers you’re not just using words and telling them what to do like any other adult would, you need to be explaining things to them without telling them what to do so that they understand that it’s their own personal decision.

Step Three

Life is full of distractions. Teenagers can easily get distracted and go off course. But you have to understand that that is normal thing and still something that parents and teachers will suffer with. So when you’re ready for them don’t just write words about what they’re expected to remember and work off of, you need to find other ways to reiterate thoughts and concepts. Use visual aids, find other ways to explain the exact same information, or even, in a greeter world, you’ll have an app that will work on your mobile device that accompanies what you’re writing. This will not only remind them of the information and keep relative to them. But it will also make an accessible on a more technologically relevant plane of existence.

Debunking Motivational Speakers

There seems to be this assumption among students about motivational speakers. Well, to begin with, they are all called to an assembly that they assume is going to be lame. They roll their eyes as someone they don’t know is going to tell them to stay in school, don’t do drugs, be independent, don’t succumb to bullying, be an individual and so on and so forth. So is it that motivational speakers are just all fluffy people full of false dreams and empty words? No, they are more than that. Especially if it’s someone who is actually talking from experience.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re now thinking that the person who is speaking from experience is the exception to the rule. That no one else’s life will turn out the same way. But you know what? It can happen to anyone who wants to make it happen. Teach yourself to be yourself, learn how to say not to the things that will only hurt you in life and say yes to the things that inspire your dreams and let you be who you truly are. Still think it’s empty speak?

slideshow-1What are Motivational Speakers?

Well, look right there at the title. They are people who speak in order to get their audience motivated to do a certain action. Whether it’s to be the driver of your own life, or to simply get a job, motivational speakers drive to inspire. Usually they have a degree in something or life experience to make them “qualified” so to speak to profess their wisdom upon the young an impressionable minds of the audience.

What Makes a Good Motivational Speaker?

Passion! That is what you need in order to be effective. If you are not involved in what you are saying, no one will actually care and follow your advice. Or they may not even think that you personally believe in what you say. So you need to care about what you’re talking about while being able to effectively articulate your thoughts to the audience.

You also need to know what you’re talking about. If you are trying to deter kids from doing drugs, you first need to understand how kids get addicted to drugs. Where are the gateways into it? How can it be prevented? It is helpful, though not required to have some experience with the topic as well. So in the case of drugs, it would be helpful if you have education in drugs, have a history with addiction yourself, or experience in some other way. Otherwise, you will not just be blowing smoke, but the kids will all know you are too.

maxresdefault (1)Also make sure what you want to talk about is something that people want to listen to. Or at least should want to listen to. So while kids may not want to be listening to you ramble on the benefits of higher education, the teachers in the school want them to get that message, so it’s important. If you are a motivational speaker trying to help small business owners, your message needs to matter to them. You can’t just be a motivational speaker about whatever you want, because you won’t actually be able to find anyone to listen to you. It’s like if you had some crazy art project and thought you could motivate people into joining you, you would be hard pressed to find people who would actually be motivated by you.


No you cannot expect to get any money as a motivational speaker. Maybe if you were really good someone would be willing to pay you, but certainly not immediately. That is, unless of course you are already famous. But not all of us have that benefit when we get into doing speaking tours in schools. And seriously though, if you are into the school circuit, it’s about the kids, which means you should be doing it from the goodness of your heart and not from the hunger of your pocket book.
