 Five Ways To Become A Better Writer
Hello Writers.

Writing is just like love. Its complex, it's beautiful, it's liberating, and it makes you feel relaxed. All in all, writing is an artistic version of love. It is something that can make you travel in parallel beautiful worlds.
However, again, just like love, writing needs polishing too. A writer might have been born with the talent of writing, but the skills in writing should be updated and bettered constantly.

I hope this article will give you some insights into how to be a better writer so that you can have a blissful writing experience. 

  1. 1. Read, Read, Read

    "Readers make better writers." And no, I am not saying that; it is an advice that has been passed on between writers for centuries. Reading a lot of books gives you great imagination and creativity, teaches you new words, gives you an insight about sentence formation, character development, and many other things. In short, reading does enhance your writing skills.


  2. Technical Skill Writing
    Writing is not just about flowery emotions, poetic verses, and romantic scenes, or intense tragic situations that will warm and move the heart of the readers. Writing is also about the language and grammar you use. I once found this article about Feminism on some blog, and because I enjoy reading this particular subject a lot, I started reading it, and much to my disappointment, I found out after reading a few lines that the article was written in an extremely poor language. Needless to say, I lost my interest all together.

    If you want to develop your skills in writing, blog writing, language, grammar, punctuations, use of tenses, the kind of vocabulary you're using matters a lot. Readers will lose their interest if they won't be able to comprehend what you've written and they'll not come back again. 
  3. Outlining & Planning
    Whenever I want to write, be it a novel, a short story, an article, a quote, a poem, or anything at all, I always make an outline of that subject on a paper. For example, before writing this article, I had already listed all the five points, researched this topic, accumulated all the necessary information required to write this down. In short, before implementing the final piece, I had created a little roadmap of what happens how and what goes where.

    When you have a clear outline of the piece you're going to write, it would be easier for you to pull it off beautifully and clearly. When you have a brief plan for your project, the chances of confusion are less.  
  4. Editing

    "No one is perfect and nobody is no one."

    As humans, you and I are bound to make mistakes, and as humans who write, we are bound to make even more mistakes. 

    Writing is a tedious and ongoing process. We might take days or even months and years to finish a project, and when we do, the work requires meticulous editing, in the technical areas, and the plot. Sometimes our work needs an addition, sometimes it needs a deletion and sometimes it needs a total change. Editing does change a lot about your writing skills and style. 

    Just like there is an eraser for every pencil, there is editing for every writing.  
  5. Continuity 
    "Practice makes a man perfect", and guess what, practice makes a writer write better too, if not perfect.

    Writing, just like any other thing, needs time, patience, efforts, a lot of tries, constancy, continuity, consistency too. If you're going to write one article every six months, then that's not going to be enough. You need to write, and you need to write a lot. Write every day, even if they're just few lines or paragraphs. Write good, write bad, write horrible, but write. Don't procrastinate.  

Hey Guys, I hope you liked the article and would definitely inculcate these methodologies too to enhance your writing skills. 

Happy Writing!
