Writing Tips

Here are some writing tips that I have come up with and like to share:

  • Write every day. If you get into a rhythm, a scheduled program it will be easier and easier until you may be able to whip something off once in a while.
  • Everything is right. When writing first drafts, nothing that comes into your imagination is wrong. First drafts can be anything or do anything. If you don't like it later, you can edit it out. But keep every single crazy idea that comes to mind in your first draft.
  • Be attentive to the world around you. Everything that writers write is based off of something that they have seen or experienced before. 
  • Write well. Pay attention in English class, because spelling and grammar really matter if you plan to submit something to a contest or publisher.
