How do you become a better WriterSo how do you become a better writer?
Attempting to be "good" gives other men and women the right to keep you back, to keep you from being who you are: a novelist. Yes, you're a novelist. Someone to write. You don't have to become "better". You' ve got to begin by speaking the honest game. If we tell our truths, we open up the part of the subconscious self that we are scared of, the part that men need.
This is what you can imagine as your souls; whatever the name is, it is what the kind of union that makes humans need, the kind that changes life. Most authors first look for the agreement of others and then hunt for their artwork - if it's the other way around.
Even heartfelt, no, especially if it frightens you. When you do this over and over again, when you don't practice in secure places, but in the open, where your failure can be seen by others, you will become better. To join a fellowship of authors who courageously share their tales and want to tell the honest tale, look at the Tribe authors that have just been reissued.
How to become a better writer
I briefly opened my Tweet-DM' last week-end and asked them to ask me about traveling or blogs or, if that's not possible, begged them to just mail me feline difs. Surprised by the reaction - scores of folks answered, no one took the chance to tell me I was an angry arsehole, and the GFs were wonder.
There was one thing that kept popping up, and because it is one that I get often, I wanted to tell the answers here on the web. What can I do better? However, I realised that I was not asked how to become a great author or even a good one. (WHAT IS GOOD BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW).
All they asked was how they could get better. Cause I' m not great, but I' m much better than I used to be. I' began this diary almost nine years ago. If you go back and see some of my early contributions, they're not. It' clumsy and stalked and doesn't even ring like me.
And I didn't even really know what a good blogsost was. I' m getting better. I' ve found out how to create a blogs entry. I' m still keeping up these early contributions, because I think it's important that folks see the progress of this site and know that things aren't improving over night.
I have done two things that have helped me to become a better author. You just keep typing. And the way we get better is to do it over and over again. Why do we think then, that this is not the way to write? - I suppose it has to do with the mechanism of the letter itself.
One badly designed phrase and one large phrase are basically the same. It is often obvious that one is better than the other. However, it is not so obvious when it comes to typing. If we see a nicely worded section, we simply suppose that the author is gifted. It' s difficult to see in the final result, especially as we are sometimes able to produce something sparkling right away.
This makes us believe that all typing, if we were really good at it, would be easy. It'?s not good handwriting. There is no straight line between moderate and good handwriting. It didn't seem at first sight to have anything to do with the other things I had to do.
You see, I had to go through all this useless shit to get that good line. You want to improve your typing, stick with it. Knows you'll do things you like. Do you know that for every single awesome phrase you keep, you could put twenty that you do.
You know, just go ahead and see what you wish you'd done. When something is beautiful, when something makes you pale with jealousy because it is so good and you really wish you had done it yourself, then that is exactly what you should do. It'?s no different when it comes to typing. Look at the phrase layout and the wording.
This is not about copies or plagiarisms - it's about learning the mechanism of typing. Thinking about Dorothy Parker doesn't necessarily give you a blue print of how to be bright, it could make you more attentive when you' re typing and make you look out for things you wouldn't normally do - and all this will make you a better author.
- I also found that it can be unbelievably inspiring to study beautiful things, especially in the types we would like to do. Think about how often you've heard something, heard a tune or seen a film, and then your mind just goes into an overwrite?
Plus, it's a great way to fight writer's inhibition. When I have problems understanding words, I try to eat something marvelous in the hope that I could not vomit something atrocious. You want to improve your typing, stick with it. If you want to be a good reader, you have to be a good reader.
