Writing is a skill which cannot be better without the two most important things i.e. reading and writing. I believe, “no one can write better, without reading and writing a lot”. It’s true and you first have to pass through it in order to learn writing like a pro and writing faster and easier. It can shine like a star in galaxy (= it can get better and even better and very faster) through writing MORE and observing others writing styles.
Yes… You heard it definitely correct! Reading and writing more, can absolutely turn you from “just another blogger” into a writer!
I believe that “impossible” is not a word but it is a sentence. How? See this:
Impossible = I’m possible
You may see, word (impossible) declares itself POSSIBLE! I know you may disagree but let me clarify it’s just my thought, idea and belief, OK? Like others do have their own. Now it’s time to dive into the topic.
I was never a good writer, a good blogger and one who does know writing better. What made me write like I’m doing right now? It’s reading and writing a lot. I know, it’s not that much better but it is. If I can, you can too. Here are some things that will let you write like one who’ve been writing from too long (but only if you do use them properly, I don’t guarantee anything)
1. Make Reading Blogs Your Habit!
Reading is what a writer/blogger needs do the most. Reading is what lets you find how others write, how you should write and you can learn something NEW everyday through this simple task. I’m already aware that most folks (more than 50%) don’t have time for it (maybe you’re one of them). Then, you cannot write nicely without this. You need time and have to find time for it. What you have to do is simple; read newspapers, magazines, blogs, books more and more on a regular basis (preferably daily). But, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t write while reading. Do write too, using comments section to express your opinions about a specific post and to make writing faster. Simple, but needs to be consistent.
Use an RSS Feed Reader to be notified whenever there’s a new post on a specific blog. Read those posts for which you’re notified by the reader. It doesn’t work itself, but you’ve to subscribe to feeds of sites which you want to read. And thus, you can read daily new, fresh and informative articles when they’re published.
Take it or leave it, you cannot be a better writer without reading tons of content.
“Writer needs to eat many books, so that they can spit out some meaningful lines.” - Romy Singh
2. Observe Others Writing Styles
Read. But not like that. Read with observing writing styles, capturing ideas, getting new words from the content you’re reading. This will enable you to grow your vocabulary and will get you new words to use them in your content. I know you might be thinking how one can observe.
It’s simple! Yes. Just go on reading your favorite blogs, like mine are; Problogger.net, CopyBlogger and others. I read them with open brain and eyes in search of new ideas to capture, new words (for me) and that’s not least. Keep in mind, why you’re reading it! What’s the reason behind it? What you’ll get? And I think, you already know the answers.
3. Join Online Forums
What do you think is an Online Forum? A place of getting your questions answered? Or something other… well, for me online forums are the best platforms where you;
- will get help from experts and professionals in a specific niche
- can learn from others and can teach others with what you know
- can build a brand, almost more than 70% people use forums just get help! And, you can be a superhero for them and can build your brand by helping them there
- can make your writings faster and better
You know what forums can do for you and what you can for them. With the exception that you can help others and can get help from BIGGIES, there’s something worth it. What’s that? If you’re someone who is new to where others are, then forums are where you can learn, help and can do the most important thing: You can IMPROVE your writing readily. Thus, you’ll get fame, help, things to learn and also improvement in your writing skills. Don’t forget you’re there for writing! So, never post a reply with few lines, write like you’re a blog post for your own blog.
Consider on others’ writing style, how they write. This is worth doing.
4. Start Commenting
To all those are not able to write faster, I’d ask them to do best commenting (=commenting not like a spambot, but like a helpful guy) on other blogs and not for traffic, backlinks and other benefits but the greatest benefit (learning, writing faster).
I’ve been commenting since I heard about it (maybe from few weeks only). But, you know I’m now going to maximize benefits from it. Why I prefer it this most? Because you’ve a great chance to show your love, opinions and you’ll have an awesome opportunity to publish something (post comment) that can improve your writing, you don’t have to do that by writing a post! Yeah. It’s what I like.
5. Start Writing Daily
Do you write regularly (=daily)? Do you? I know, most answers are NO! That’s what lacks your interest in writing and makes you hate writing, even you can’t write a single line, which is the secret of writing better (for me). If you don’t have interest, passion of writing, you need it then. But, how can you have it? That’s not being sold! Well, that’s not an HARD task, if you’ll take it hard, then it is. Take it as easy, if you’ll then it’ll be. Make a habit of writing daily! This can be done, through several ways. But, I’ll share one best of them here only, which seems me to be Beneficial.
It is 750words.com. It’s just a simple thing/site, lets you write 750 words daily necessarily. You can select a time for writing and it’ll notify, whenever you wouldn’t have written on a particular day. Use it daily, to get better results.
I did it!
I did! I written the post perhaps faster. How? Just through simple task;
That I thought it’s not HARD and took it as a simple, easy task. That’s what you’ve to do. I mean, you have to take your work thinking it’s too easy, even if it’s hard. Hopefully, you’ll do it. Some efforts are strongly needed.
