1. Read your writing out loud.
  2. Read other people’s writing often–good writing (and a smidge of bad writing to see why it’s bad–you’ll learn to recognize it overtime).
  3. Listen to feedback; sift through it the best you can. (This process becomes better with experience.)
  4. Practice. (This is polishing your craft–your gems.)
  5. Repeat.

It’s been a particular busy season in my life recently. In an attempt to focus on the cores or main principals of writing, here’s five I’m offering that I tend to focus on. Try not to let your ego/pride get in the way of #3 (we all do this).

My dog would like to add a #6.) Take breaks to take us canines outside and feed us our meals on time. Wouldn’t want anything to happen to your precious drafts now, would you?

Happy writing.
