3 Important Skills To Develop As A Seasoned Writer
It takes more than just writing something great to become a successful writer or putting words together to become a best selling author. Becoming a successful writer in this age is not just about writing alone. Writers have to do more than just WRITE
So what are the skills you need to possess and practice to become a successful writer?
Here are the three skills you need to practice to be a seasoned writer:
- The Habit of Writing:
If you want to be a writer, you have to write. There is no simpler way to say it. It’s important that you practice the habit of writing into your daily schedule so if you want to become a writer, you’d have to write every single day.
- The Confidence To Practice In Public: Share your work to the public . Put it out there. Let them see your work. When you publish your work, people get to see you and give you a feedback. That way you get to improve on a daily basis and get more confidence to write more and increase your poweress.
- The Art of Personal Branding: People don’t buy writing , they buy you.
The single most valuable thing you can create for yourself is a brand around who you are and whatever it is you write about.
It’s a problem if nobody knows who you are i.e if you don’t have an audience.
To attract (and keep) people’s attention, you have to give them something to feel loyal to–and that’s you.
