Negative Traits as Positive Traits for all Writers

Writing in a wide range of subjects and writers have many positive and negative sides to telling a story, and to inform you, the reader, of such creativity from their great minds. You think you write, you imagine and write from your perspective.

Whether in storytelling or in the form of an article writers provide you with information that improves your knowledge of a specific topic. This can be from lying to you about a topic to having a negative character and getting you to like their work.

Writing is a way of life for some writers.

Some writers see the negative trait as a positive trait in writing.

Bad traits actually encourage some writers and the outcome can be a good one.

This is called a negative trait that provides you with a positive trait for writers in their art of writing. Most writers will find this creative tool encouraging, while other writers will find it discouraging to their writing.

Sometimes you are told, ’’you are too much for that person.’’

Also, others may look at you as a weird or crazy person. While a few won’t come near you for their own beliefs. It is such characters that are able to create stories that are out of this world.

Their minds work wonders and you won’t see it that way. Being passionate about writing means good. Some writers may be too much for you in sharing their aroused emotions and minds with you.

Other writers do what they are passionate about to prove to you that their work is intense.

Some writers jump right into the fire with both feet.

In haste and worry later about their mistakes. You know it works for you without hurting others. Information you provide, your research and going all out means that you do not waste time writing your story.

Being neurotic means to feel what you write. You write poetry to express your emotions. Whatever you are feeling, you put this down on paper.

The negative energy you are feeling is put into words and expressed in a positive manner. Leaving you with a clear mind and at ease.

Negative traits have taught you to focus on what hurts you, but to get you to see the trait from both sides. Nosy people become good writers from their negative experiences.

There you are feeling bored and decide to spy on your neighbour. You are no stalker and neither are you a nosy person. Being nosy to fulfil your time creates a positive character in your life. The negative trait is spying on your neighbour.

Using the negative trait as a nosy person and writing about it brings light into your life. In other words, you’re using the neighbours from a few doors away as characters in your story.

In this world, you hold on to what you have experienced, in connection to other people and create ideas from an intriguing story. Most writers do not organize their desks or rooms, giving them the inspiration to write.

It is what gives writers a negative trait but a positive comes out of that. To write about their disorganized lifestyle is part of what they accomplish from a disorganized room.

This negative trait puts you in a corner and will inspire a writer to keep writing.

Writers need to focus on what they may think is only writing, and to get away from anyone or thing that will cause a disturbance.

Multi-tasking for writers doesn’t allow writers to achieve their goals. It is a distraction, but somehow most writers find this negative trait to be a positive trait for them.

Writers are liars!

Fiction stories are made up of stories and it is what makes writers write at their best in this way. The positive trait that comes out here is that great fiction stories sound factual and feel like reality too. The negative trait in a writer brings out a positive outlook in telling lies in their stories.

How Many times have you been told to grow up and stop acting like a child?

A writer knows how to get into a child's head with their creative stories. Your great imagination leads a child to think about the characters in your story. You use the negative trait to create a positive trait from your well-told stories.

What other writers see as negative traits of a writer you see as a positive traits.

Traits from writers can be good or bad.

You know writers from your judgement. Whether good or bad you must be sure of what you are trying to say about writers.

You want to be valuable to readers as a writer and not be misunderstood by what you are providing to an audience. Every idea you put on paper is of value to a reader. Ideas matter to readers not an article of a few thousand words and without the value of an idea.

Provide a reader with the quality and the main idea of that article. Any idea you provide creates a larger audience.

Do you think writing has one form?

The many forms of writing such as Academic, journal, and technical writing are some of the forms of writing. You fail to pay attention when focused on writing.

What is the value of your writing that makes it outstanding?

Your writing must be good enough to provide a worthy article to readers. Writers have different styles of writing and feedback helps, so don’t ignore that.

Who thinks they are bad writers?

If you feel you are a bad writer and compare your work with other writers, you are stealing your joy of writing away from you. Your ideas are good, but your writing may appear bad.

Most people first learn from writers who don’t provide good ideas or good writing.

Avoid labelling yourself as a bad writer!

Great ideas matter to readers and so does your presentation of your article. Use a logical flow for readers to understand what you are trying to say in your article.

My focus is on the structure of the article, the value of the content and the style.

Do you have to write in one Sitting?

Write and edit your work to achieve the best work at hand. You must think of a reader reading your work to make the process easier.

Writers can write better if they think of themselves other than writers. Your character changes all the time and you need to know who you are writing the article for as an audience.

You learn from all the lessons of writing. Time is required to present a good article. Remember that anything good comes out of patience, but nothing good comes out of haste and impatience.

A newbie won't hesitate to ask others for approval about their work. I don't blame the newbie for acting out that way. It is different and they feel insecure about their first article.

A beginner wants to receive the best feedback and doesn't realize that is not the way writing works out when writing for an audience.

FlourishAnyway from USA on July 06, 2021:

I certainly haven't thought of writing quite this way. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Mary Norton You are more than good enough and this comes with practice and a lot of thought. Thank you very much for sharing your opinion.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on July 05, 2021:

You have interesting thoughts on writing. I think inside of me is a thought that I'm not good enough as a writer. This hinders me from writing many times.

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 05, 2021:

Nithya Venkat Thank you for sharing your view here. Writers need positive minds and to create what they wish to Your comments are most helpful.

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 05, 2021:

Denise McGill Every writer has their own ways of sharing their work to an audience. It is interesting to know feedback on this subject. I appreciate your time thank you very much

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on July 04, 2021:

Interesting article about how negative traits can bring out the positive in writers. Sometimes we tend to compare our writings with others. We can learn from this comparison and improve our writing skills.

Denise McGill from Fresno CA on July 04, 2021:

I may write the way I wish to but I also compare my writing to others I admire. I strive to be better at the craft each time I write. The same with my art. I also use every failing and every bad situation in my life and experience as something to write about.

Adrienne Farricelli Thank you for stopping by. Writing has a some benefits and so does reading books. Me too I prefer non-fiction.

Adrienne Farricelli on July 04, 2021:

Hi DDE, great observations! I enjoy learning from others and discovering new styles of writing. I have attended a few courses on creative writing, although I always enjoyed writing and reading non-fiction.

manatita44 Thank you very much for comments Take care

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 04, 2021:

Misbah Sheikh Thank you for your interest in commenting here. I so agree with you. Without an escape in reading fairy tales lives would be more depressing and less sociable. So much has changed in regards to writing and genres. However, writing gives a place to be and to get our minds in a better frame of mind.

manatita44 from london on July 03, 2021:

A thought-provoking piece and well written article DDE. Excellent work!

Misbah Sheikh from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on July 03, 2021:

Hello, Devika. You've made a lot of good points. People that write in a creative manner have always piqued my interest. In reality, if we look at ourselves closely, we will notice that we have been reading fairy tales since we were children, which keeps us away from the actual world and allows us to live in an imaginary world until life gives us a harsh kick. Many people do not want to open their eyes in the actual world after obtaining that jolt. There are many psychological benefits of living in that imaginative world.

As Mr. Bill stated, I agree that many creative authors are liars, but that lies are not meant to wound but to bring delight. As I previously stated, there are several facts that go into creating such stories, and they have a favorable impact on a person's brain and memory.

I believe that authors that write in a positive manner while using negativity as fuel for their writings are fantastic and should be praised.

Thank you for sharing!

Blessings and Love to you

Rozlin Thank you kindly for all comments. Writing for me is a pleasure,

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 03, 2021:

Chitrangada Sharan, I write about my experiences and reading the work of others allows me to comment. It is interesting to know bout writers and what they have to share here. Thank you

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 03, 2021:

Bill thank you very much I enjoy reading your work and have learned lots from yours.

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 03, 2021:

Peggy Woods So true and I do believe that every writer has something to show for from their hard work of writing, be it articles, a novel or a fiction story. Thank you

Devika Primić (author) from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 03, 2021:

Pamela Oglesby Thank you very much I wish you a lovely weekend.

This is a very interesting article, Devika. Thanks for sharing. Even I write as I wish and this make me happy. Stay safe and healthy always.

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on July 03, 2021:

Hello Devika!

You make some interesting points about the writers and their writing.

Writing for me is an enjoyable experience. It gives me pleasure to put my thoughts into words. A positive feedback from the readers, is of course always a pleasure. But, while writing something, I don’t think about that.

Thank you for sharing this insightful article.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on July 03, 2021:

All true! I love the part that said writers are liars. Yes, we who write creatively are liars...I prefer storytellers, but the main point is true. :)

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on July 03, 2021:

Those photos of books and your captions are so true. Books do improve knowledge while also providing an escape from reality. It all depends upon what a person reads. I have loved reading from the time that I was a small child. "So many books, so little time!" That rings true for me.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on July 03, 2021:

I enjoy writing and I write as I wish, not comparing myself to other. I do admire other writers, however. This is an interesting article, Devika.

John Hansen from Australia (Gondwana Land) on July 03, 2021:

Very interesting Devika. I need to go back and reread this to properly understand all the points you make.
