Tips to become a good Writer

How to become a good Writer?

A writer is a person who expresses his views and ideas and any other fact in words. He can use different styles and techniques to communicate ideas.

Writers produce various forms of literary art and creative writing such as novels, short stories, poetry, plays, news articles, screenplays, or essays. Skilled writers are able to use language to express ideas and their work contributes significantly to the cultural content of a society. The word is also used elsewhere in the arts – such as songwriter – but as a standalone term, “writer” normally refers to the creation of written language. Some writers work from an oral tradition.
Writers can produce material across a number of genres, fictional or non-fictional. Other writers use multiple media – for example, graphics or illustration – to enhance the communication of their ideas. Another recent demand has been created by civil and government readers for the work of non-fictional technical writers, whose skills create understandable, interpretive documents of a practical or scientific nature. Some writers may use images (drawing, painting, graphics) or multimedia to augment their writing. In rare instances, creative writers are able to communicate their ideas via music as well as words.
Some Tips
1. First decide what you want to write. Any article or any sort of story and how it’s going to develop. Check out the different genres out there and choose the one in which you are  lot of interested. Sit at a corner and start thinking. Surprise yourself with thinking what you never thought.

2. Sometimes you can find it difficult to get any idea but don’t loose hope. We are surround by different ideas, ideas are everywhere. Just look around or look inside you, think of what inspires you. According to your interested genres, read some other well written books, and you can get idea for your piece from there. Do what relax your mind. The best way for ideas to come to you is to relax your mind and let brains come naturally to you.

3. Now decide the tense in which you want to write your story. Present, Past or Future. Will you be telling it, or the character in the book. If you are telling a story from your past experiences, something that already happened. Define the character according to this. I or the character in the book?

4. Stay connected to the real world or other sources like newspapers and internet. The more knowledge you have, the more better you can think or write. Broadening your reality will definitely improve your ability to share your words to the world. It is very important factor for writing your story.

5. Work on your vocabulary is very important for writing up anything. Every book has big words in it. And to understand and write like that you need to learn and elevate your vocabulary. It is a good idea to keep a dictionary and a thesaurus near you when you are writing.

6. Think about the main characters you are writing about in your story. Think about each and every important character carefully. Not just about their personality but about their age, dressing sense, hair style, clothes and everything. The more real they are to you, the easier it will be to predict their actions in the circumstances you put them in. You can get surprise by yourself after knowing them so deeply. Go over every detail about your character in the story.

7. Try to have a strong beginning, a good middle and a proper ending. Don’t let the book get down anywhere. Mix some elements so the readers get hooked with the book. If you get bored halfway, don’t close it forever. Close it for couple of days and find some new ideas if you get from anywhere. Don’t give up. Ideas will come up to you definitely.

 8. For virtually every published author, there are hundreds of rejection notices that they have accrued over the years of writing. Don’t give up! Keep writing, and eventually, you’ll find a publisher willing to publish your story. Hope for the Best always. Read your books as many times as possible. Try to find out the little things. Add some more element where needed. If you think your book is pretty good, cross your fingers and look for a publisher.
