Five steps to being a better writer:

When it comes to writing some people going T confused as to whether they're writers or not. So let me break it down, if you write poetry, short stories, articles or motivational articles you can consider yourself a writer. It doesn't matter if you're a published writer or not. Often times writers encounter what is known as "writers block" (I will treat this in my next article)which leaves them feeling stuck in their writing and when you encounter this, it's not easy writing; and as we are aware when it comes to writing you can't force it. It has to congee natural otherwise it will come off as tacky, uninteresting and not "rich". So how do you become a better writer? 1. Avoid making errors - Nothing turns a reader off about reading your article more than errors. It could be grammatical errors, spelling or punctuation errors. So as a writer you need to have some "writing tools" to help you churn out better and error free articles (watch out for my article on some writing tools every writer should be familiar with). 2. Avoid too much emphasis - I know sometimes you want to stress a point or a part of your article that you're trying to draw the attention of your readers to but avoid making too much emphasis as it will make the article look too repetitive. 3. Read Everyday - Yes that's right!. I know you're the writer but you have to do a bit of reading yourself as well. Reading broadens your knowledge and you also get inspirations for better writing as well. So as a writer, you should also be a reader. 4. Write Everyday - Consistency is key when it comes to anything. To be better as a writer you have to stay consistent, write everyday. It could be short articles, a bit of Journaling or even poetry. So write everyday and you'll notice that you'll be better at it. 5. Skip Sections - I know I stated that as a writer, you have to read everyday but with reading comes the need to know everything and not miss out on any information, the fear of missing out on informations could lead to brain overload. So when it comes to "long read" articles, you can skip to the end and here's a secret regarding long reads: in case of doubt, skip to the conclusion. If it’s worthy of understanding how the author got there, read it all. If not, congratulations. You just avoided wasting time. So these are tips to being a better writer, practice them and watch your writing take on a new level of professionalism.
