PUBLISHING

1.Write down 3 ideas every day.

Just like every other part of your brain needs to be used or it will get rusty. The more you use it, the faster and better you will get writing ideas. Keep Ideas.

2.Read – At least 2 chapters every day.

Read, read, read. Read everything — classics to new releases, and see how they do it. Just like a trades-person who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! Then write. And If your writings are good, you’ll know. If not, start reading some more. Get Reading.

3. Get “words of the day” and grammar tips.

Good vocabulary plus good grammar = a way higher chance to get published. Words on Pinterest.

4. Write at least once a week.

So people will tell you to write every day. And if you can, that’s great. So unless you have nothing to do but write- i don’t know how easy it is for you to write every day. So set goals for what you can achieve and you will succeed. Once a week, twice a week, every day. Write around your lifestyle by put writing in your to-do list. Remember – Goals are dreams with deadlines. Start now.

5. Join writing groups.

Social network groups are a great way to find writing partners, get and give encouragement, promote your work, ask writing questions and get feedback on your work. 7 Facebook Groups Every Author Should Be a Member of:

6. Act out scenes in your head.

When you act out a scene in your head you discover voice and tone and which words to use. Once you have a feel for the scene, it’s easier to write everything down and making it sound natural- because it IS natural. Clear Your Mind.

7. Try reading and writing different genres.

Why? Because you expand your horizons and broaden your talent by pushing past your comfort zone. The more you know, the better you will become. Must Read Novels.
