I think I’d like to write something

Home / FAQ / I think I’d like to write something

What do you want to write? A movie? A short story? A book? A TV programme? An article in a magazine? A stage play? A computer game? There are many different types of writing, and WGSA concentrates on performance writing., which means we do no actively work with prose writers like novelists, journalists or short story writers. But there often is an overlap between the different writing genres, so you can approach WGSA to help you get in touch with the right people.

Please also note that writing is not about being rich and famous. It’s about needing to write, about having something to say and doing it, even if you have to work in the middle of the night with an empty stomach.Writing is hard and frustrating work, the hardest you might ever do, but in the end it is also one of the most emotionally and creatively satisfying occupations you can get.

As Stephen King said, “I think that writers are made, not born or created out of dreams or childhood trauma – that becoming a writer is a direct result of conscious will. Of course there has to be some talent involved, but talent is a dreadfully cheap commodity, cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work and study; a constant process of honing.”
