Are you having a tough time in writing good content?Does nobody read your Content?Do you envy other successful bloggers and writers with loyal readership?Are you desperate for earning some bucks from your writing?If you have Yes as an answer to any one of those Questions then keep reading.You won't regret it , I PROMISE.

Following are the 5 Tips to improve your Writing Skills.

Be Confident

If you do not believe in yourself then who will?Eliminate all the fears of getting no positive results. Be confident and keep writing no matter someone reads it or not.

“Whether or not you write well, write bravely.”
-Bill Stout-

Write Daily

Lets take an example of Driving.Nobody becomes a good driver just overnight.On first day, you are afraid and nervous.Next day, you are less nervous and far less afraid.You keep driving regularly and one day you start feeling comfortable with your car and that driving stuff.So make sure that you write Daily.

"Anyone can become a writer. The trick is staying a writer."
-Harlan Ellison-

Proofread Always at the End

Forget about proofreading when you are writing.Just let the words and imaginations flow through your mind.Don't try to block them.Because Writing and Proofreading can never work good at the same time.So first write without any limitation and then proofread in the end.


“I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.”
-Oscar Wilde-

Keep Readers in your Mind

You are not writing only for yourself, right?
Your target is your readers. So always keep their interests in your mind when writing. Write useful,simple and easy to understand content.

“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
-John Cheever-

Read a Lot

What you going to write when your mind is empty?.You need to read 100 pages for writing 1 good page.So read a lot and try to learn from successful writers.Like how they convey their meaning in just a few phrases and how they explain something very complex in a quite simple way.

“For all I know, writing comes out of a superior devotion to reading.”
-Eudora Welty-

Last Words

By a Good Writer,I does not mean the one who can write long and complex sentences.Good Writer is the one , who writes as simple that a 12 Years Kid can understand him.

"Easy reading is damn hard writing."
Nathaniel Hawthorne

Yeah, I too agree that one should practice daily to improve their writing skills. Afterall practice makes a great impact on skills.

Further reading on daily basis will help one to be updated with the knowledge domain. This way one can present information more effectively. And this will lead to creation of valuable and qualitative content.

And as u mentioned about proofreading, I too think that error free and uniquely presented content plays well in blogging as well as for other writing purposes too.
Anyways thanks for sharing. I found it shared on kingged.

Hi there!

I find it helpful since it allows readers to know that each of us has a room to grow, a room where to improve our skills just like writing.

I believe in blogging, using heavy English isn't obligatory even though it is used world wide, however, it is not other the worlds native language.

I always have the need and want to improve mine and definitely, these simple tips here will help me, and so with other readers.

Writing daily, proofreading, and reading books are effective practices. I also agree about the last words you've shared. Write-ups should be easy to comprehend.

Writers aim to write an epic content, which is indeed helpful and valuable to their readers, as well as content that can give back their desired benefits. But perhaps sometimes some writers have a quite struggling situation to write great content.

As for me, it requires time, space and skills in writing good content. You need time to think, you need good space to be comfortable in writing and you need skills to write.

These tips shared above on how to improve your writing skills are valuable and helpful.

Often writing and reading content will surely improve the quality of your writings, as well as your skills.

Thanks for the shared knowledge! I've indeed had a good read. :)

Best,
Ann07

Hi
Last point is very important to improve our writing skills. We usually don't give it much importance and just assume ourselves idea factory and just keep writing. After awhile we feel monumental writer's blog and in some cases quit writing in disappointment. We should know that if we keep expressing without imbibing new ideas after sometime we don't have anything new to write and we would just be writing another post without much quality.

The writing tips given in this post, though looks like a basic ones, but it has itsown value. These tips are very important to be noted while writing for anybody for that matter a newbie or a vetran.
if follow these tips while writing surely one can create a well-balanced content.
Writing daily and proof reading at the end and of course the reading lot of stuff is the main key for a writer. In this speed age some neglect reading, and that will really affect in their writings too. Read read and read is antoher important thing writers should make note and practice to improve their writing talents.
Your apt quotations along with the write-up is really interesting and noteworthy. I liked the quote by -John Cheever on reading, it’s really an interesting one! :
“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.” -John Cheever
In this post you covered all needed ingredients in few words. Great Going!
Keep writing.

Your advice for writing well is exactly right on! Initiate writing with abandon. Proofread over and over again. Keep readership in mind. Voila! Excellence in writing comes along in time and with practice.

I was attracted to your bio, as a Greek was my former husband. I make a dynamite baklava, leaving little of it for my guests! And I measure on the tests as an introvert, except when I write. There I speak volumes!
