How to be a Great Writer!

“Being a good writer is 3% talent, 97% not being distracted by the Internet.”
—Anonymous

Becoming a talented writer is a hard job. It’s not easy to figure out how to write a plot with the perfect twist, characters so vivid they could walk off the page, dialogue with ironclad believability, all with a voice that captures readers and keeps them coming back for more.

Maybe you have days when you think about all you’ve written and wonder whether it’s all doomed for the rubbish pit. Having days when you question whether writing such drivel is worth it, or whether you should simply throw in the towel now.

Here’s the thing, though: the key to becoming a skilled writer is to write.

Wishing you were better won’t cut it. Neither will waiting until some future time when you hope you will be.

Want to be a good writer? Close Facebook, Twitter, and all those other pesky internet distractions. Shut the door so you can’t hear the TV blaring in the other room, or the clanking of pots and pans. Sit down. Moreover, just write.
