Ideate a lot, write even more and don't sell your craft for cheap
|Apr 27||Public post|
It’s true, everyone’s a writer. Everyone with a computer is a writer. Everyone is a writer because it is so easy to be a writer — all you need is a word processor. You have that, right? So even you are a writer. And once your building watchman has finished watching all videos on the Internet thanks to his carrier’s unlimited data plans, he’ll become a writer too.
But that’s not a bad thing. I love that everyone’s a writer because it shows them how difficult it is to be a good writer. Let’s not even talk about being a great writer; you’ll get there once you start being at least a good writer. So, what makes a good writer? Let’s see.
Ideate and then ideate some more
No grammatical errors, please
Read, write, repeat
Focus on the context
Write about what you know
Don’t sell your craft for cheap
Use the words that you actually know
Support arguments with data
Forget about the world
