How to Become a Better Writer



Best put not all words are equal, there are writers who take an idea or thought and drag it out while others can make words literally dance on the page. Most people who have a basic education at one point or another received the keys to becoming a good writer, but they still have not learned to drive.

For years I have heard the only way to get better at something is by repetition. The silly thing is if you repeat writing nonsense then logically you will just get really good at writing nonsense. What is it that separates the great philosophers and writers of the past and the idealist intellectuals of our time? Could it be that while we verge forward and transcend into a more modern era that writing has lost its individuality.

We are taught from a young age to take words and structure them in a way that can easily be compared to abuse. There are so many published writers and their style of writing is regurgitated nonsense. What many people don’t realize is that you absorb a little bit of everything you read.The great debate that reading will make you a better writer is far-fetched. Reading and writing sleep together but there entirely different entities. I am not nieve enough to think I am the only one who has unearthed this discovery.

Tie me to a cross and set it afire, not all words are equal and neither are our minds. Not everyone has the ability to become a great writer because it’s truly an art. Writing is the most intimate and expressive art form I have yet to discover.  Being a successful writer comes down to looking at the world in ways others are not.

  1. I’m laughing so hard at the bookshelf that I can’t dictate my comment, so I’m typing it instead. Feels weird to type more than a letter or two.
