A Fascinating Perspective on The Journey to Write About Different Things at Different Times With Different Purposes & Stories Behind Each New Post on Medium

Be Patience and Stay connected till the end.

Life is a journey. Live and learn each day.

“I only write when I’m inspired, so I see to it that I’m inspired every morning at nine o’clock.” Peter De Vries

Writing is my philosophy even though I think it's the philosophy for everyone. Anyway, it's my thinking about it. you can disagree its OK. in the end we are different human beings with different gender, personality, and mindset.

The Philosophy of Writing:

Writing anything like a poem, article or book is not rocket science but it has a process most of the time writers just write according to their knowledge but as we know it’s not enough to make an impact.

“I kept always two books in my pocket, one to read, one to write in.” Robert Louis Stevenson

We have already covered the importance of the writer’s notebook, but we cannot overlook the equally important aspect that is reading. it gets our minds working across different areas.

You Have to Be a Reader If You Want to Be A Writer

A writer must-read books both for pleasure and with the mindset that they’re investing in their own writing craft. The art of reading like a writer does not come instantly; A writer must work at it.

“Reading is the springboard to writing.” Joyce Carol Oates

Reading allows a writer to study other writers in order to shape their own style. Joyce Carol Oates is a firm believer that reading other writers can inform and elevate one’s own work.

Our most important job is to deliver great stories to readers.

The hardest part about writing is… well, writing.

By making reading a fixed part of their regular routine, a writer can continually expose themselves to new ideas and techniques and recharge their creative juices for their next writing assignment. The truth is that reading is most productive if it becomes a daily habit.

The best writers are masters of their minds . this is how they use mind mastery to create fame and fortune.

Writing is a learned skill, a writer doesn’t leap out of the womb, pen in hand, shouting, “Get me some paper quick, before I lose this brilliant idea.

Writer and reader can all learn from each other.

First, a writer has to learn how to form the words, then they have to learn to link them together, and finally, they have to make the whole meaning. The learning never ends for professional writers. This is particularly true when it comes to online content creation because the internet and the different platforms are constantly evolving.

“When you have wit of your own, it’s a pleasure to credit other people for theirs.” Criss Jami

Words, ideas, language, and communication, these are vital components of writing.

They have to think of themselves as a curious researcher bent on continuous and never-ending knowledge accumulation. And they have to continuously put their knowledge to work by exercising their fingers on their keyboard.

Write & Publish on an Online Web Platform:

The web is the most broadly utilized source for sharing and assembling data. On the off chance that there is an actuality or assessment about anything, there is a decent risk we can discover it online. There are a couple of particular advantages to composing articles and posting them on the web.

The Best Web Platform; Medium:

Medium is the best blogging platform of them all and it is an open platform and a publisher. Anyone can write a piece on Medium and, as long as it’s not in violation of their (medium) rules, have the potential to find an audience. Medium is one of the largest bundles of the original content of its type, so it’s a great value for readers.

Why do different people want to write?

Before we decide on anything in life, we normally have a ‘why’. Questions can be Why do I do this? Why do I value this over that? Why am I not happy when X happens? The answers to this can differ from success to leaving a legacy behind, having a positive impact on the lives of others, and more.

  1. A novelist may write because they are inventive and see the world as inspiration for stories to tell.
  2. The writers of articles want to make specific points. What kinds of points they make, through the medium of the article format, are indicative of each writer’s needs and desires.
  3. Some writers write because they believe that there is a problem they should write about and use the word as a weapon against things.
  4. Some writers are informed about something that has a message and uses words for the empowerment of self or others.
  5. Some writers use writing as a form of therapy and write journal-type articles which lay bare their symptoms.
  6. Some writers write them because it’s a way to occasionally make some money with their skill or knowledge, or because it’s a way to pay their bills or do other things to live a better life.
  7. Some writers simply write them to express their love, appreciation, or criticism of the things they care about, like food, movements, literature, or whatever.
  8. Some writers write for self-expression, to be heard, to find kindred spirits, or in the best of all possible worlds, to attract fans.

What is mine why?

I know why I am here, I mean on Medium. I often wonder if Medium understands why I am here. I loved the platform and the idea that we could make a few bucks while doing something we enjoy!

It offers a voice to everyone, it’s elegant, and it is free to join as a writer.

After a couple of months on Medium, I am realizing that competition and striving for excellence are not why I am here. I do want to improve as a writer and explore other types of writing. That seems to be a pretty reasonable goal. Being “the best” is not a priority.

Goals could be:

  • clear misconception about Islam and culture
  • learn new different things and change mindset
  • I try to write about things I think are amazing to me because I want to use the word to give power to the things I valued.
  • Sharing knowledge and showing credibility without sounding arrogant
  • I want to help my readers learn something. And that something almost always has to do about writing fiction or nonfiction.
  • I enjoy writing and I love my current career and i love to learn new technologies by self-taught and also want to write about them for two main reasons. First, write about those things which we learned recently can be remembered for a long time and the second main reason is I want to build my theory-based knowledge and share it with others who are interested to learn for their professional career.
  • I wish to serve others by sharing my experience with different things.

“If you wait for inspiration to write you’re not a writer, you’re a waiter.” Dan Poynter

I always wanted to be a writer. And, having a medium to publish my articles and get noticed by people was amazing. And, every time I decided on a topic, I would research a bunch about it and this helped me in gaining a lot of knowledge on different topics. It even made me start reading the news every day.

My Journey of writing :

I fell in love with writing in 2018 and started my journey by writing poems in English and publish on allpoetry.com but actually, it's my childhood dream to write a book on some hidden interesting facts about different religions and countries and how people live their life according to their religious teachings and culture and how they celebrate their different religious and some other festivals and so on.

How do I arrive on Medium?

I started writing for Medium around January 2021. First, I was just reading other writers’ work which I liked and inspired from their work. A few months later, I decided to start writing here on medium instead allpoetry. As I told earlier Any writer who wants to write and publish anything there, just can do it one time within 24 hours but we can write and publish without any restrictions on medium. In one year in medium, i did not find any restrictions like others. So, we writers can write and publish how much we can and want here in a medium.

For me, it is freedom and I liked it.

My first purpose was to write about a tech blog here in the medium after learning any new technologies and some of those things which I already knew and have experienced about them but I wrote a couple of articles with different contents. But I made a few mistakes that could’ve easily been avoided in the beginning.

I write what I want to say, hit publish, walk away

I started some series of articles on different things most common and important series about Islam. Being Muslim and an ordinary follower of Islam I had some bad experiences, especially after the Afghanistan war. I noticed at different times that most people from western countries have a lot of misconceptions even sometimes some biased and rude People called me different bad words which hurt me.

Personally, Belief, Positive something thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.”

  • Read about Religious Holy Sacred Text Like Quran & Sunnah which are two main and primary sources to know about Islam
  • Some Sacred Conversations between these Abrahamic religions in a positive environment

Final Thoughts:

Life is an adventure that can best be experienced with an open mind. The joy of writing is sharing what I have learned, some firsthand but mostly from others.

Being the best is fine if that is what we desire. I have something else in mind and invite you to explore it with me.

I was in a whole new world, and I was loving it.

What I really want is to share my inner world. I want to have some meaningful interaction with other writers, and other thinkers. That is the main thing.

The greatest asset of a new writer is that you can write without fear

I developed a habit of reading my articles and stories out loud. Then, once I heard that my writing was making sense and it was flowing reasonably smoothly I moved on to publishing in the medium. It’s a great place for writing community, mentorships, friendships, and great content when we learn how to sift through the not-so-great content.

And all praise and thanks are due to Allah, without Whose help and guidance nothing can be accomplished. May Allah bless you with happiness, success, guidance, health, and knowledge. May Almighty Allah give us the strength to follow the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and make us part of the group who is among the most righteous! Ameen.

Be patient with yourself. And Keep learning!!

Yeah, don’t forget to follow me for more amazing content. Happy Reading!!!

If you enjoyed reading, learned anything interesting, or know anyone who should read this, please feel free to recommend or write a response. I’m always excited to hear from others and learn.
