A Great List Of Tips For Writers I’ve Taken From A Great Book, 365 To Vision

As an aspiring writer I love to learn new tips and tricks to improve my writing. Here is a great list that helps me.

I recently got my hands on a book titled, “365 To Vision” by Ron Lieback. (Here is a link to his Facebook page) I’m only one chapter in, but I’ve been able to pick up so much information that I believe to be transcendent as I continue my journey to become a writer. Here are some notes I’ve taken from the first chapter. Hopefully these notes can be as helpful to you as they are to me. Cant wait to continue to read! Find “365 To Vision” on Amazon

  • Always be prepared to jot down notes and ideas when they come to you.
  • When it’s time to work eliminate distractions. My phone can be my biggest hinderance when trying to keep myself in a creative place mentally.
  • Try to write an article one sentence at a time, don’t form paragraphs. This will allow me to better flow paragraphs together in the end.
  • Never post an article directly after completion. Let it sit. Come back to the article at a later date when my mind is fresh to review once more.
  • I need to spend more time creating drafts. I need to stop writing an article for the first time as the final copy.
  • Take breaks, don’t work on edits or final copies while my mind is foggy or tired.
  • First copies of writing work should just be a spewing of thoughts, don’t correct punctuations or grammatical errors. Just write and spew my thoughts on the topic. Edits will be done later.
  • Always use less words.
  • The title needs just as much thought as the final draft. Do things such as, create curiosity, ask a question, or create a sense of urgency. I want to start a conversation in the readers head.
  • Titles should be around 60 characters.
  • The first paragraph is just as important as the title. Entertain, create curiosity, or even piss off the reader. Once the reader starts the first paragraph they will determine if they move on or continues to read. Read the paragraph myself and determine if I would continue to read this article.
  • Ask myself if the reader will care about my article.
  • Appeal to all senses when writing, sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste.
  • When writing think like a camera in different ways that my writing could be viewed.
  • Once finished, read article backwards from the last paragraph to the first. This will help to catch grammatical and spelling errors.
  • Know my audience.
  • Create 110% original content.
