There’s the secret: you have to know as a writer. And this is why we write to educate you further if you have an idea, or known.
You have to be an expert on a topic, a creative writer, an entrepreneur, or a salesman with the experience of what people really need to read. Most readers what how to write-up than mainly stories with no factual clue, or maybe a combination of several of these.
Writing may be your core skill, but how you use it is what will make your living.

HOW TO BE MORE THAN AN AVERAGE WRITER?
- Become a blogger. Have your own website or blog to post daily.
- Use self-imposed word limits. For example, 600 count word.
- Accept all forms of criticism and learn to grow from them. I write blog posts for http://wealwayslearn.com, http://johnmarksales.com, and publishers of traditionally published books. Tens of people sent their comments either as appreciation for a work done or criticisms.
- Read what you’ve written over and over until you can’t find any more problems. Then correct it.
- Show what you write to a trusted audience for feedback.
- Outline. And then write to that outline. Edit, and edit again. Live with passion. Be open, curious, present, and engaged.
- Learn a new word a day. Get the pen and fingers moving. Write in different genres: blog posts, poems, short stories, essays.
- Read grammar books. Write without distractions. Challenge yourself to write for 12 hours straight.
- Take a trip. Road trips, beach trips, bus trips, plane trips. Watch movies. Can you write the story better?
- Read, think, read, write – and read some more.
- Talk to people. Listen to how people talk. Read lots of books. Make notes of your brilliant ideas.
- Start your writing ahead of time – not hours before a deadline. Give yourself a deadline ahead of the time given to you.
- Listen to podcasts on writing tips in the area of your niche.
- Use simple, declarative sentences. Use the active voice. Limit your use of adjectives and adverbs. Use simple sentences.
- Write for publication, even if it’s only for the local newsletter or a small blog. Make writing your priority in the evening after you have rested for the day job. Sometimes, sleep awhile, and begin after a while, you will write better.
- Tell everyone that, I’m a writer.
- Keep your book simple.
- Read from seasoned authors of your areas of your dictions or niches; be generating good ideas on their books, pages, and websites
- Read works from different cultures. It helps keep your writing from tasting flat in the doorways of your readers. Work on brilliant headlines. Join a writing group. If you can’t find one, form one.
- Have a freelancer group to learn from. For example, freelancer.com, problogger.com, and lots more. Do more research about the topic and write it new, raw, or organic, this is what will attract more readers to come back again and again.
- Map out a writing schedule for your project and stick to it. Ask someone else to proofread. Then, make a post. Some platforms cannot be corrected after a post you make.
- Break out of your comfort zone. Write on the scene. If you want to write about a beach, get a picnic rug and go write by the sea. Start with metaphors and stories.
- Socialize with other writers on Facebook, Whatsapp, Linkedin, Twitter, and other social media platforms.
- Stretch or exercise in between writing: competitions, for journals, ghost posts, and so on.
- Make a note of ideas for further development before you leave a piece for tomorrow.
For example, write out the theme, topic, or caption of the story, fiction, nonfiction, or feature to write about. Put more pressure on yourself to be able to complete it within the time you have set for yourself.
Ensure you write without biased. Write a clear English Language that a child could read easily. The clarity of your writing and its newest is what will interest your audience will read wider.
