25 Writing Tips For Writers, Editors, and Authors (Part 6)

A long overdue post on tips and tricks about writing (well, mostly).

Once again, I post these on my Facebook and Twitter as well.

Enjoy and have an awesome day.

  1. All wonderful things take time to cultivate. Novels are no exceptions.
  2. Be proud of what you write.
  3. Shock your readers. Scare them. Make them cry. Anything. Make them feel something.
  4. Writers must learn to forgive themselves.
  5. Open your heart. Open your mind. Let everything into your life.
  6. Give the readers a reason to read on.
  7. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Don’t let a negative opinion bring you down.
  8. Every writer started somewhere. Find your start, know your finish, and work hard from beginning to end.
  9. Leave your readers wanting more, not less.
  10. Filter everything. Filer information, voices, and opinions. Keep what’s useful and discard what isn’t.
  11. If you continue to work, you will eventually succeed.
  12. No piece of writing should contain unnecessary words or sentences.
  13. You can fix your first draft later.
  14. In the writing world, you need compliments as much as you need criticism.
  15. You are a writer, not a miracle worker.
  16. As confusing as grammar is, it’s even more confusing when you don’t employ proper grammar in your work.
  17. Something is better than nothing.
  18. Never fear making mistakes. Your fear will only hinder your creativity.
  19. Write to please yourself but to satisfy your readers.
  20. Make every paragraph meaningful. Make every sentence matter. Make every word magnificent.
  21. When you write, you spew. When you edit, you craft.
  22. Persist and you shall succeed.
  23. Failure is preparation for success.
  24. Anyone can write but not everyone can do it well.
  25. Never underestimate the intelligence of your audience.
