Writing is a skill. And like any skill, it can be learned. And even for those who are naturally gifted in writing, there’s always room to improve. You can learn to become a better writer –with study, practice, and commitment to the craft.
When I first started writing about a year and a half ago, I wondered how some of the best writers do it. How do they write such powerful pieces – and make it seem so easy and effortless. It wasn’t until I had a conversation with my writing idol, where she indicated she rarely feels like a great writer, that I realized the most important aspect in becoming a great writer – staying humble – and always looking for ways to hone your craft.
Any writer can be great. It just takes a little time, and a lot of effort. For anyone looking to improve their writing, here are my five best tips for becoming a better writer.
1) Become a better writer by writing more. Sounds so simple, I know. But I can’t tell you how many writers I talk to that are frustrated with their ineffective writing process. The only way to improve the process is to practice. Write, write, and write some more. At some point, writing will be easier. But it takes time, and lots of practice.
2) Become a better writer by being consistent. Writing consistently is one of the most important things you can do in order to improve your writing. Set a publishing schedule and stick with it. Being consistent will also help you build your following. And your readers are what will keep you going.
3) Become a better writer by following other writers. Find a few writers whom you admire and really like to read. Don’t ever try to copy them, but let their writing entertain you, and inspire you to continue on in your own writing career.
4) Become a better writer by networking with other writers.  Networking with other writers is a great way to meet people that have similar interests and find the folks who will support you as you move forward in your writing career.
5) Become a better writer by staying abreast of industry trends. It’s important to know what’s happening in the industry if you want to become a better writer. Trends, challenges, and opportunities are always there – you just need to know about them and be able to use that information to strengthen your posture as a writer.
