Writing: 73 Ways to Become a Better Writer

Monday, December 27, 2010 Posted by Unknown , , No comments
The Copyblogger has posted up their 73 ways to become a better writer which is something every struggling writer should read. It's a pretty thorough list of things that either help improve your craft or just your perspective on life, and all 73 are notes of wisdom that writers should take to heart and mind. Here are some of my favorites:

3. Accept all forms of criticism and learn to grow from it.
8. Live with passion.
9. Be open, curious, present, and engaged.
24. Listen to how people talk.
34. Be inspired by other art forms – music, dance, sculpture, painting.
61. Break out of your comfort zone.
72. Take risks – don’t be afraid to shock. You are not who you think you are.
