For years now, I have been in search of that elusive skill called writing. After reading thousands of articles and blog posts about how to write, I still haven’t come across the secret that will turn me into a superhuman writer overnight.
I searched all over the internet, in every nook and cranny and left no rock unturned but then I finally found it, right under my nose. The secret to becoming a better writer is just write.
Just write, you ask?
No matter how many classes you take, articles you read, or people you talk to, the secret to becoming a better writer is write and write often. Are you going to produce a novel or viral blog post every time you write? Chances are no but each time you write, you will get a better. All of that writing adds up and after a while, guess what, you will be a better writer.
Before you know it, the ideas will flow like rainwater running down a downspout. Your use of words will improve, your grammar will improve and you will develop your own writing voice.
What is your next step? The answer is simple, stop reading and start writing!!
