1. Read before Writing

If you love to read, then you are already a step ahead. Reading is very crucial for starting something as innovative as writing. If you already have a topic in your mind, do read everything you can get your hands on about that. Or if you are still wondering with a blank page, like many of us are, reading widely can help you find inspiration and ideas.

The more you read, the more you expose yourself to different writing styles, tones, and techniques. This can significantly improve your own writing abilities. Reading allows you to understand what makes good content engaging and compelling. Pay attention to the word choice, sentence structure, and overall flow of the pieces you read. Identify what you find effective and try to incorporate those elements into your own writing.

Furthermore, reading expands your knowledge and vocabulary. The more you read, the more you learn – about the world, about different subjects, and about the nuances of language. This wealth of information will shine through in your writing, making it more authoritative and insightful. So if you want to be a better writer, keep reading. It’s one of the most fundamental and valuable habits you can develop.

2. A Basic Structure

Just like a good painting needs a good base, an interesting read needs a solid framework. Imagine how to start, will it be a simple day to day occurrence, description of a character or something else? Maybe you have imagined only a certain section of your creation, don’t be stressed thinking about how to link everything together. I know many great writers who started off after thinking of just one sentence. But the story was gripping, nonetheless. So take all the time you need and start writing a good solid foundation for shaping your future masterpiece.

3. Don’t Repeat

Repetition is strictly prohibited. You won’t be able to leave your personal stamp and readers will lose interest in your work early. Avoid utilising the same syllables again and over, whether it be in a word, a phrase, or an event. Incorporate as much paraphrase as you can. It will improve your vocabulary and make the reading experience more pleasurable.

4. Write Everyday

Create a regular writing schedule to increase productivity. Set a precise objective and achieve it every day, whether it be a word count or a time restriction. This will increase your ability to write regularly and include discipline. When you set aside a certain time daily, your brain becomes accustomed to be creative during those specific hours and overtime it becomes simpler for your creativity to flow when that time comes.

5. One step at a time

Don’t let too much work overwhelm you. As we’ve already talked, you need to have a strong structure. Build it up piece by piece. Now begin to put on various colours of life. Try to relate as much to actual life as you can. In this manner, readers will be better able to identify with your tale. Write something. All the best, from us.
