The Easiest Way to Become a First-Time Published Author

Updated: Jul 2


Are you someone who has always had a story to tell but never quite knew how to share it with the world? Or perhaps you've never even considered yourself as a writer, but deep down, you've always had a desire to put pen to paper and let your creativity flow. If you find yourself nodding along to any of these sentiments, then you're in the right place.


In this beginner's guide, we'll explore the exciting world of writing and publishing, from finding inspiration to seeing your words in print. By the end of this article, you'll be inspired and empowered to take the first steps towards becoming a first-time published author.


Finding Inspiration


The first step in your journey as a writer is finding inspiration. Inspiration can come from anywhere and everywhere, whether it's a personal experience, an intriguing conversation, or even a vivid dream. Take a moment to think about the stories you carry within you. What experiences have shaped you? What messages do you want to share with the world?


Remember, there are no rules when it comes to inspiration. Your story is unique, and only you can tell it in your own voice. Embrace what sets you apart and let it guide your writing journey.

Embracing Your Creativity


Once you've found your inspiration, it's time to let your creativity flow. Don't worry about perfection at this stage—just let your ideas spill onto the page. Write without inhibition, without fear of judgment. This is your time to explore, to experiment, to play with words and ideas.


Writing is a journey of self-discovery, and every word you write brings you one step closer to uncovering your true creative potential. Trust in your voice, trust in your story, and let your creativity soar.

  1. Free Writing: Set a timer for 10 minutes and write continuously without stopping or worrying about perfection. Let your ideas flow freely.

  2. Creative Prompts: Use a random word or image as a prompt and write a short piece inspired by it.

  3. Dream Journal: Record your dreams for a week and highlight vivid imagery.

  4. Self-Reflection: After writing, reflect on what you've created. What did you discover about your creative process?

Getting Started


Now that you've found your inspiration and embraced your creativity, it's time to get started. Set aside dedicated time each day to write, whether it's ten minutes or two hours. The important thing is to make writing a priority in your life.


Create a comfortable writing space where you feel inspired and motivated. Surround yourself with things that spark your creativity, whether it's a favorite book, a piece of artwork, or a soothing playlist. Find what works for you and make it your own.


  1. Set a Writing Schedule: Dedicate time each day to write, even if it's just 10 minutes. Consistency is key.

  2. Create a Writing Space: Design a comfortable, inspiring area for writing. Include favorite books, artwork, or music that spark creativity.

  3. Prioritize Writing: Make writing a priority in your daily routine.

Overcoming Doubt


It's natural to experience doubt and uncertainty as you embark on your writing journey. You may worry that your writing isn't good enough or that no one will want to read it. But remember, every writer—no matter how experienced—has doubts from time to time.


The key is to push through the doubt and keep writing. Remember why you started writing in the first place and hold onto that passion and determination. Your voice matters, and your story deserves to be heard.


  1. Acknowledge Doubt: Understand that every writer experiences doubt and uncertainty.

  2. Push Through: Keep writing despite your fears. Consistency builds confidence.

  3. Remember Your Why: Reflect on why you started writing and hold onto that passion.

  4. Believe in Your Voice: Your story deserves to be heard.
