New year, new me right? Right? Umm, no.
For 2023, we’re ditching the cliches and archaic norms and focusing our energies on more realistic and productive practices. Don’t worry, we’re not going to ask for your new year’s resolutions.
As part of our self-growth journey this year, we want to incorporate more writing into our daily routine and become efficient, proficient, and overall more accustomed to the practice.
So, we’re giving you 3 non-cliche and understated tips that can help you make the new year a year of writing:
1. Schedules Don’t Always Work
Okay, this may be a hard pill to swallow, but it’s true! Deadlines are an important part of routines, but creativity is fluid. You could have achieved nothing during working hours but a bout of inspiration might spring up on you at midnight. Creativity is abstract.
We’re not saying ditch the deadlines, just giving you another perspective on how you can work around timings and schedules. If it’s not happening today, it’s just not. Saying, ‘my brain is just not working right now, is totally valid!
2. Read More Of What You Write
Everyone says you should read more – but it’s what you’re reading that really matters. Follow more authors from your genre and style of writing, keep up with their latest work, and try to make pointers and observations on how that can help in improving your writing!
3. Complicated Words And Sentences Don’t Always Mean Good Writing
Say it louder for the people at the back!
If you really read ‘good’ writers’ work sometimes, a lot of it might not make sense. Logically. Using big or tough words is sooo last year. What really counts is the emotion, the sentiment, or the meaning behind your message.
If the message has a purpose and resonates with a significant-sized audience – you’ve done a good job! Make sure every word in your sentences holds substantial weight and value.
We’re expecting to read a lot more from you in the new year 🙂
