In yesterday’s post, Top 10 Commandments for Writers, we went over 10 of the top writing rules that should be in every writer’s notebook. Today, we’re looking at 5 quick fixes that will dramatically change your writing.

 

 

Write Daily

Being a better writer takes practice. Even if it’s just a few paragraphs, the only way to get better as a writer is to actually write. Keep practicing.

 

Try A Prompt

Sometimes we get stuck and need others to help us get our creative juices flowing. Prompts help us think in new directions. Still stuck with writer’s block? Try a few tips from our 16 Ways to Banish the Dreaded Creative Rut article.

 

Read Your Favorites

Read authors you admire: don’t try to be them, but learn from the choices they make stylistically.

 

Join A Writing Club

Remember all the stories about Fitzgerald-Hemingway-Stein? The best writers have other writers around them. Surround yourself with other wordsmiths and you’ll have a fantastic new resource for feedback.

 

Take A Course

You may be motivated to be more experimental in your writing, learn about other writers, or at the very least, strengthen and sharpen your writing ability.

 

Now let’s get writing!
