Writing a book is a huge project. It can take anywhere from one to ten years and there’s no guarantee that it will become a best seller. This may sound discouraging, but it’s not. It’s the truth and if you want to be a good writer then you need to start with the facts. Today we’re going to be going over the things you need to know to be a good writer. Let’s take a look.
Books do not write themselves.
The single most important thing you can do to be a good writer is write. That’s it. That’s the whole secret. Write every single day and one day you will be a good writer. Discipline is worth more than all the talent in the world, because it’s absolutely essential to producing a complete work. Without a strong commitment to sitting down and actually doing the writing, it really doesn’t matter how good your ideas are. You have to actually put them down on paper for them to count. So, take some time every day to do a little writing and you will be shocked to see how far your will progress in a short time. Even if you’re just writing down the things you did throughout the day, any and all practice is good practice.
Become a good reader.
One of the best ways to get more familiar with literary mechanics is to experience them. Dig up your favorite books and read them again. What did you like about them? What was it about the author’s style that made them so compelling? Was there anything you would have done differently? If so, what? These are all helpful bits of information that you can take into your own writing. You should also push yourself to read authors that you think are complex or highly acclaimed. Even if you don’t necessarily love the books, you may find yourself learning something important.
