Ideas on Being a Good Writer

mhY3004

What makes a good writer? Well it’s certainly not getting in front of a computer and typing with no concept of what you’re writing about. There’s no written strategy that is concrete, but there are things you can follow to achieve becoming a better writer. For me, I know when I get a book that I cannot put down, and also intrigues me to keep turning pages, it’s clearly written by a good writer.

A point to keep in mind is you want to grab the reader’s attention from the very first page. Another thing would be when you create your characters, make them come alive and pop—if you can get the reader feeling emotion you’re on the right track.

I’ve heard that the best thing about writing is being able to express what’s on your mind; a comment that I have to agree with whole heartedly. My early years in school, I was never one to be able to communicate the way I wanted because I was extremely shy. However, through my writing I excelled. Writing was my refuge in which my thoughts fluently poured out into bright vocabulary. No awkward moments or sounding stupid; just me being creative and insightful.

I will say that new writers can learn from experienced ones, and all it takes is simply reading. The more you know, the more you will improve in your vocabulary and your writing style, among other stuff. That’s what I think it takes to be a good writer. My advice for someone new starting out would be never give up and strive for the best.

Have a great weekend!

  1. The best writers ‘engage all of the reader’s senses’ allowing him to become immersed within the pages and eliciting feelings, positive OR negative!
