Assalamualaikum and 안녕하세요!

Anyone who writes is a writer, but that doesn’t mean they’re a very good one. So let’s talk about how to become a better writer. We’ll begin with the basics — here are seven key lessons:
  • Writing is simple, but not easy.
  • Before you get a larger audience, you have to get better.
  • Practice makes you better; it’s the repetitions that make it effortless.
  • Until you put your work out there, you’re only screwing around. Write for real.
  • You can’t practice without discipline. Keep showing up and persevering.
  • There will always be resistance; type through it, anyway.
  • Get over your excuses and do the work.
Here is a list of 10 essential tips on writing:
  • Write every day.
  • Make sure your writing is effective.
  • Don’t be lazy; do your best to avoid sounding stupid.
  • Stay focused! Distraction is the enemy of all great art.
  • Stop worrying about being a good writer; just write.
  • Forget about fame; write what’s worth writing.
  • Get over your perfectionist tendencies.
  • Don’t write to get published.
  • Write with conviction.
  • Read.

Here are 10 basic tips on blogging and building an audience that will help you get published:
  • In order to get noticed, you’ve got to be intentional.
  • Narrow your focus to broaden your audience.
  • Learn from copywriters, and write for scanners.
  • Engage with readers (get more comments on your blog).
  • Be intentional about growing your blog traffic.
  • Build an email list (like, yesterday).
  • Use guest posting to tap into new audiences.
  • Write great content, but don’t stop there; build relationships, too.
  • Expect haters.
  • Help people.
