7 tips for aspiring writers

We recently received a question from Essay Map, "How do I learn to write well?" It's a tough question because there's no one-size-fits-all answer and no one-size-fits-all plan. But if you have a similar question, here's where to start:

1. Reading

To learn to write well, you need to read a lot of good books, articles, and blogs. This seems obvious, but for some reason is often "pushed" into a far corner by beginning writers. Through reading, vocabulary increases, grammar improves, and literary taste improves.

2. Is there progress?

You should read not only professional materials, but also your own old ones. The main thing is to soberly assess their pros and cons. It not only helps to figure out what you need to "tighten up" and leave better, but also to evaluate your own progress. Don't be too critical of yourself, but don't hang in the clouds either: praise yourself for progress and draw conclusions from failures.

3. The Eternal Student

Don't stop learning. Look for tips, books and articles that will help you improve and find new "tricks" for writing. 

4. Stay close.

When it's hard to write about assigned topics, try to just relax and be honest with the reader. Tell a personal story. You don't want it to be personal, write about what you see. About the snowfall outside your window, about what you heard on public transportation, about a situation you noticed on the street. Such texts are always easier to write and easier to understand.

5. Practice

The theory is not enough, you need practice. It's like in sports: the more you practice - the better you write. No one is expecting a brilliant text from you. And don't promise it, either. Just write my essay for me cheap, write as much as you can, and you'll get there.

6. Habit

Try to write at the same time every day. Let it be just a record of what you dreamt, how you slept, what thoughts you woke up with. In the beginning you won't notice any changes, but after a while the effect will be achieved: you will be able to write without waiting for inspiration.

7. Go beyond the ordinary.

It's hard to gain writing experience without having a life experience. Travel, take walks, go to exhibitions, go to plays, spend time with friends. Anything that makes your life fulfilling makes your writing so, too.
