On the 57th episode of the Write Effing Now, the podcast that helps you Master Writing, Marketing, and Publishing One Byte at a time, Hilary Jastram has some insight about how to improve your skills as a writer.

Today we are in a society where the majority of people think becoming a writer is difficult. In today’s episode, Hilary focuses on the four key guidelines of writing. One of the many things you’ll learn for example is:

  • What does it truly mean to critique your writing?
  • When revising and doing a final edit, are you making sure you have someone you trust read it over and give you honest feedback?
  • What levels of readers are you targeting?
  • Why it’s never a good idea to focus on your opinions in your own writing and how they can be negative to your narrative and what you’re creating.

Here are a few things you can apply to your writing moving forward:

  1. Make yourself uncomfortable when writing in general to maximize your creativity.
  2. What is your reason to re-write and edit your piece?
  3. Who is your target audience and what style of writing should you be using to get their attention?

Watch the number of adjectives you use in your writing and recognize how the overuse can impact your writing negatively.

As Hilary speaks throughout this episode, she is going to break down writing as a whole. What is the purpose? Why are you writing? Who is your audience? What truly makes a good writer is not the use of fiction.  It’s the knowledge they gather about what they are writing about.
