3 Ways to Get into Writing

It’s National Writing Day!

If you’ve been with us since the beginning, then you might know that theSprout has always been a place for you to get your voice heard — however you want.

As it’s National Writing Day, here are 3 ways to kick start your writing game, no matter how busy or uninspired you feel!

Start microblogging

Microblogging turned the world upside down in 2007, when Twitter burst into existence. It’s come a long way in the last 13 years — at one point doubling the number of character you can post in one go — but it’s become a platform for those wanting to dip their toe into a world of topics.

If you’re over 13, why not start a “Tweet a Day” thread, to refine your technique?

Here are some our favourite Twitter accounts:

Write for us

We want to see more of what you think, feel, do, have or want. And it doesn’t have to be a written article, either. Want to start a Swedish Film Club? Do it with us. Think that the Government needs to do more to tackle climate change in Wales? Hit us up with your videos, articles, GIFs, Insta stories…whatever works for you.

100% of our best content comes from you lot — the under 25s in the ‘Diff. We’ve had THOUSANDS of articles over the years, about mental health, gender identity, gaming, music, politics, history, bad films, Welsh-ness, and, well…poaching salmon in a dishwasher. (What a gift.)

Need examples? We hear you. Click here to check ‘em out.

Start a TikTok challenge

They say you should do one thing every day that scatres you. Never understood sonnets or haiku? Why not try setting up a series of one-day challenges and WIN AT EVERYTHING FOREVER.*

If you’re feeling left behind because of lockdown, or if you just need to find something new to whinge about — writing’s your key.

Who knows? You might even pen a bestseller.

*we can’t guarantee this.
