My thoughts on writing tips found online and in published works (with some random thoughts thrown into the mix).

Want to Become a Better Writer?

While browsing the Copyblogger Best of 2012 list, I came upon this graphic. The creator had wanted to show writers that there is no easy way to become a writer. There are no magical "10 Steps" to follow that will turn you into an instant genius. There is no quick trick to become a world famous author. You have to work at it, which is the point he illustrates here. While there are other things that are important to writing well (such as reading a lot and doing your research), there is nothing that can replace experience. You just need to keep writing and writing to develop your own style and improve your craft.
