I started a new series that covers four key writing skills. These are skills I’ve developed over the years, and they have helped me become a better writer. If you’re starting off in writing, or if you want to improve your grades in your writing classes, this series is for you.
These skills apply to all types of writing. I’ve found them just as useful in technical writing and journalism as I have in creative writing.
Here are the four skills you should master:
- Develop intellectual curiosity.
- Become a keen observer.
- Write clear descriptions.
- Develop your own style.
Notice that I’m not covering the mechanics of writing, such as grammar, spelling, and composition. These are basic skills you need to learn, and there are plenty of places to develop them.
