20 Of The Best Writing Tips
Posted on December 22, 2007 by Scott Belsky
Melissa Donovan at "Writing Forward" publishes some of the best tips for emerging Writers.
- Do it. Write.
- Read as much and as often as you can. Remember, every writer is a reader first.
- Keep a journal or notebook handy at all times so you can jot down all of your brilliant ideas.
- Make sure you have a dictionary and thesaurus available whenever you are composing.
- Be observant. The people and activities that surround you will provide you with great inspiration for characters, plots, and themes.
- Grammar: learn the rules and then break them. Stop procrastinating. Turn off the TV, tune out the rest of the world, sit down, and write.
- Read works by highly successful authors to learn what pleases publishers and earns a pretty penny.
- Read works by the canonical authors so you can understand what constitutes literary achievement.
- Join a writers’ group so you can enjoy support and comradery in your craft.
- Create a space in your home especially for writing.
http://www.writingforward.com/...ters-proof" title="Writers Proof">Proofread everything at least three times before submitting your work for publication.
- Write every single day.
- Start a blog. Use it to talk about your own writing process, to share your ideas and experiences, or to publish your work to a live audience.
- Use http://www.writingforward.com/...-exercises" title="writing exercises">writing exercises to expand your talents and explore different genres, styles, and techniques.
- Let go of your inner editor. When you sit down to write a draft, refrain from proofreading until that draft is complete.
- Allow yourself to write poorly, to write a weak, uninteresting story or a boring, grammatically criminal poem. You’ll never succeed if you don’t allow yourself a few failures along the way.
- Make it your business to understand language. Do you know a noun from a verb, a predicate from a preposition? Do you understand tense and verb agreement? You should.
- You are a writer so own up and say it out loud, “I am a writer.” Whether it’s a hobby or your profession, you have the right to this title.
- Write, write, write, and then write some more. Forget everything else and just write.
