10 Valuable Things Every Writer Needs to Know

The following information is a list of beneficial and valuable advice for anyone wanting to start writing.

1. Take heed the sentimental haze

Don't get caught up in the fluffy words, vowels and sibilants.  But won't withstand the rigours of everyday.

2. Wipe out self-doubt

Nobody likes hearing about self-doubt, people want to feel, hear and taste your words.

3. Always give your readers the truth

Listen to your innter voice and what it tells you, let it flow naturally.

4.  Never take advice

Advice can be really hard to take sometimes.  You'll get all kinds of helpful criticism pointed out to you showing you all of your flaws.  By biting the bullet and accepting their advice you will grow stronger as a writer.

5. Don't be too concerned about your mistakes

You learn from your mistakes, and we all make them.

6.  Recognize your audience

This is often about knowing yourself and your audience.

7. Family and friends not your real audience

You're better off joining a local writer's club than listening to your own family.

8.  Read as much as you can

It doesn't matter what you get your hands on, read it!  By reading things no one else does, you'll discover things no one else has discovered.

9.  Communicate and observe as much as possible

The more you use words in your communication with others the greater your understanding will be.

10.  The big question, why do I want to write?

Yes, why am I writing?  People usually write because they're passionate about something.

Happy writing!
