Tips for improving your skills as a writer

Our recent writing chats have covered a wide variety of topics. This week, we decided to take a different approach and have an open-ended chat.

During the chat, I answered a variety of questions concerning these topics:

  • The writing process.
  • How to move your writing to the next level.
  • Interesting and important stories that caught chat participants’ attention.
  • Questions about writing tips, tricks, strategies or tools.
  • How to effectively use adjectives.
  • Concerns about stories and assignments chat participants were working on.

We have made it easy to comment on posts, however we require civility and encourage full names to that end (first initial, last name is OK). Please read our guidelines here before commenting.

    Why would anyone take writing advice from a person who has never written anything except a subsidized textbook? Never really understood that.
