In my previous post, If you want to be a good writer – Read a Lot, I’d narrated the one significant quotation of Stephen King where the statement emphasized the importance of reading books for anyone wishing to be a writer in their life.
Now, this blog post highlights significance of his another statement to which he suggested writers ought to write a lot in order to be best in their niche.
What are the salient benefits of writing a lot, especially when it is an emphatic point behind improving one’s writing skill?
A scintillating improvement to your creative expression manifests due to writing a lot:
One of the most remarkable benefits of writing that you may experience is visible improvement in your creative expression, albeit the condition behind manifestation of such a notable improvement in your writing is subject to persistent practice backed by your commitment and dedication.
Writing is indeed a commitment of giving your hundred and one percent to this lexical aspect of contextualizing words. Apparently, you must ensure that the continuity of the practice is unbreakable even though it may sound physically and mentally demanding task.
Writing a lot gives you an improved understanding of your subject matter:
I’ve personally observed over the five years of writing that I’ve mastered over many subjects with an improved insight of their subtle meaning.
Though I was professionally obliged to comply certain rules and regulations associated with my professional association with my employer organizations in relation with writing contents for their marketing purposes, however, my contribution also helped me with an improved insight about those subjects I wrote contents about.
Writing a lot qualifies you for a host of writing jobs demanding someone with specialization into writing:
If you believe that specialization in writing comes through having yourself enrolled for a writing course in a university, then I don’t think that is actually the most realistic and trustworthy way to gain the specialization. Rather, I tend to believe that if one is hell-bent and labors hard for writing with dedication, very soon he will gain the required expertise.
Moreover, in due course of time, his month-long persistent practice will help him qualified for writing jobs demanding specialized writer. Yes, this is possible, but such an excellence comes through persistence.
I do not want to demean the credibility of such writing program offered by university and different institutions worldwide, for they are certainly credited to have given the world numerous writers who are respectively known among us for their creative or unique expressions.
I just want to point out that writing a lot with dedication and constant practice can also give you the required excellence and specialization that you may have sought otherwise through those creative writing courses designed to make you expert at your niche, but in return of monetary charges.
Writing develops your communication power convincingly:
If you indulge yourself into writing with dedication and perseverance, very soon you gather an improved communication power; you can actually master the art of persuading or impressing others. This is not an overnight result at all; you need a lot of time to finally master this art, but make no doubt that if you continue writing, you’ll have the communication mastery.
Writing a lot, conclusively, is one of the most effective techniques to improve your writing skill together with giving you additional awesome benefits. Though I’ve personally observed that most writers are introvert and usually confine themselves into their introversion believing that’s the safest room in the world to create a masterpiece.
And no doubt that most classic books that we find today were actually originated from the mind of those writers who confined their world into the wall of their own introversion.
However, to be a good writer, you don’t have to be introverted or aloof, just enjoy your writing and when finished, give it a good visual check to ensure correctness of sentences in terms of grammar and syntax.
