Ten Commands For Writing Your Love Story


Masih bingung mengapa ada orang rajin sekali menulis di blog, maka tidak ada salahnya anda menyimak tulisan dari pengarang Graham Ascough.

  1. Write with a sense of positive expectancy – Believe you have a story worth telling and leave a legacy for family and friends.
  2. Awaken the writer within – Begin now! You may be surprised to find what talent you have for this task.
  3. Write to communicate not to impress – Tell people about what you think and feel and not just what you have accomplished.
  4. You dont have to be perfect – Writing gives you the freedom to express yourself. Do not compare yourself with anyone else.
  5. Write with your head and heart – it has to be believe and entertaining. Live the moment you are writing about as you convey your thoughts to the page. Capture the mood. Readers will feel that what you are sharing is important to you.
  6. Write with honesty – elements of conflicts, humour and pathos. Tell your story as it was, not how you would have liked it to be. Reveal yourself. Let people see the various aspects of you the person.
  7. Writing is simply speaking on paper – Writing as you speak is like engaging in a one on one conversation. Be chatty and choose words from your own vocabulary.
  8. Writing is hardwork – Nothing of worthwhile nature is achieved without a lot of effort, perserverance and resolve.
  9. Write at your own pace – Make it a pleasurable hobby not a chore. Be discipline in setting aside time, but do not allow the project to dominate your life. Set your goals about how much and when to write, and review these regularly if necessary.
  10. Writing is a way of reviewing your life – Take time out for yourself as you review your life. You might not think that you have led terribly interesting life, but the chances are, once you start writing it all down you will be surprised by how eventful it has been.

Writing Your Life Story by Graham l. Ascough

Author:

Hi.. Mimbar Saputro.. friend call me Mimbar. Live in Jakarta and Bekasi, Indonesia. Above 58 years old, love to write anything, but still afraid write in English. Retired real mudlogger, "promised" Directional Driller coordinator, "promised" mudlogger's Director. Since 6 Januari 2012 - been third time retired. My actual job is drilling rig "mudlogger" - a person who collect information based on drilling shit or cuttings. I like to write about drilling rig, but ones must remember the Oil industry is Tighthole Policy, therefore you cannot tell about your rig too much. After twice got "golden shake hand" another word for "early termination" - they said I am too old for such job, I am working in West Australia, the country where the older is the better. I love working here because the payment good, people nice, food superb. And they did not even bother how old am I as long as I can work, in good shape.Thats all. Hello: Nama saya Mimbar Bambang Seputro, tetapi di Pasport kadung ditulis SAPUTRO. Waktu kecil dipanggil PekBang. Kelahiran Banten Jawa Barat. Sebetulnya cita-cita sih menulis kehidupan saya pribadi sebab setiap orang pasti memiliki riwayat hidup yang bisa dibagikan kepada orang lain. Sayangnya banyak dari kita meninggalkan dunia bak sebuah orkestra indah yang belum pernah diputar karena tidak berani mencoba menulis kehidupannya. Bahkan banyak orang kalau namanya kebetulan mirip dan tersenggol - marahnya bukan main. Padahal apakah cerita kehidupan harus selalu glorius, penuh kemenangan. Banyak kan kita membaca otobiografi seperti sekolah pinter, anak Wedana, anak Orang kaya, Ganteng, ndak pernah salah sementara sayapun juga manusia, punya kelemahan. Saya bekerja di sebuah konsultan perminyakan di Australia. Namanya memang keren "MudLogger" tetapi pekerjaannya mengayak lumpur pengeboran. Setelah lumpur dibuang maka batuan yang sudah menjadi serpih ini kami tata teratur dalam baki kecil dn dilihat dibawah mikroskop. Sisa batuan lainnya kami bungkus dalam kain mori. Lalu kami jemur dibawah terik matahari. Rata-rata berat satu bungkus harus 2 kilogram. Kalau contoh serpih batuan ini sudah kering, kami bungkus dalam kantong plastik seberat 200gram. Biasanya satu set terdiri dari 4 kantong plastik. Dan kantong-kantong ini kami kirim ke pelanggan kami untuk dilakukan pemeriksaan geokimia dan analisa batuan lebih terperinci.
