Many authors question their writing ability and wonder if it is truly worthy of being read by readers. They are always seeking ways to improve on their writing skills. A writer enjoys writing but often refuses to let others read their work. They might beleive that it is simply not good enough. Here are a few ways that I have found that might help you to improve your writing.
1. Write a blog- Nothing can help you more than writing itself. A blog has to be added to on a continous basis. One has to search out new content to be added that might engage the reader’s interest.
2. Read websites or blogs about Writing. One can find useful information about writing, writers tips, writers block, good grammar and punctuation tips, how to get published or write a synopsis, writers’ habits and how to improve on writing. Here are some interesting websites and blogs about writing that I have found.
3. Join a writing contest. There are several sites that you can join that offer contests. Here are some that I found recently.
3. Read! Nothing helps more than to read someone else’s work. It might bring you insight on what you are not doing. Or give you pointers on how to write your story. Lastly, it might show you how to tie together your dialogue, characters, plots,etc…
I hope this helps you with your quest to become a better writer. A true writer always strives to improve their writing skills and embarks on new challenges daily.- Tracy Kauffman
