Tips for Learning How to Write Well
Writing is a way for us to exchange information. While speech does the same thing, writing stands the test of time and creates history. Have you ever noticed that some people are more effective speakers than writers and vice versa? This section is dedicated to help you narrow the gap between those two. The easiest single way is to write as much as you. Of course, if you do not work on reviewing and editing your work, it is difficult to improve. I find that if you take as much time to edit your work as you took to write it, growth comes very quickly. You should also read the work of accomplished writers to help you develop your own style and that make sense to you. Research is key to putting together strong pieces. Just like writing, research takes time to do well. You will also learn a style or strategy for research that works for you. Use of vocabulary is a means for authors to stand out from their peers. I find you can often vastly improve this by using a thesaurus while you write.
