Hello Guys, I hope you are all doing well
Please stay in your house and stay safe
Today I would be sharing the little knowledge I have on how to be a better writer or should I say how to be a writer
I have been getting a lot of DM you are good at writing and all, how do you do it.
The truth is I’m not sure I know how to write because I see a lot of people who are better writer than I am
I wouldn’t even call myself a writer
Here are some tips i think would help you ;
1.The first thing I tell people is, write the way you talk, very important.
It will be much easier for you and you’ll be able to dish out more content.
Yeah, you can look at other writers and learn from them but never copy other people writing style because you would be a second version of someone else, a duplicate
I wouldn’t read your content if I see you trying to be someone you aren’t.. Be yourself
2. Write as if you are talking to someone physically because that is what you are actually doing and It has helped me a lot
I start the conversation in my head and I write it down exactly the way it is.
It’s always fun and its much easier
You are having a conversation with people through your writing
3. Your passion
I get asked this a lot what will I write
What kind of content will I write on. Write on what you have passion for because you’d be able to flow with it
If you write or join a particular niche because it’s the rave of the moment and other people are doing it
You are on your own
What will you write after the whole is have gone.. You’ll start looking for what to write on again
No, don’t do that
4. Use your anger and emotions wisely
This helps a lot. I know quite a number of people that write best when they are angry and hurt, that’s when they give out the best content
What’s annoying you at the moment is your content. Write how you feel, if you can’t talk to someone. Write it down
Not only will you write a good content, you’ll feel good and relieved at the same Time
5. Never make corrections when writing because if you do, there’s a possibility you’d forget what you want to write
Write and edit later not immediately
When you want to write on a particular topic, never look it up online before you start writing because you’d subconsciously be writing what you read online
Write then look it up online when you are done writing yours to make necessary corrections
6. Make use of your phone Notebook
This is very key because there are content everywhere.
You might see something while walking write it down.
A thought might come to head write it down. You might hear people talking and you catch a phrase, write it down
There are contents everywhere, it might not make sense to you at the moment.
When you are less busy go through your notebook, you’d see a whole lot of things to write on
7. Write everyday
If you are serious about being a writer then you have to write everyday, at least a paragraph if not a page
Practice makes perfect/perfection
You need to be consistent in whatever it is you do, not only in writing. If you are consistent, it becomes an habit and you get better day by day
9. Look for a writing and accountability buddy, if not buddies
This person will push you to do more and challenge you to be better because that is what a buddy does and you learn from each other
10. Lastly, read and make research
You have to read books and know how to use words correctly
When you read, you learn new words and discover amazing writer and learn different styles of writing
Make research, discover other writers like yourself, connect, create and take a break when you need to.
These are the few things I think would help you in becoming a better writer and they are in no particular order
I am not a writer, I am a content creator
