8 Ways To Become a Better Writer

I’ve been a writer as long as I can remember, and a reader long before that. While I’m not an award-winning writer by any means yet, I think that I’m definitely a better writer than I was 5 years ago at least. And even if when I become an award-winning writer, I’ll probably want to become a better one. So here are 8 ways that help people become better writers (other than taking a class).

The Nashvillian is a lifestyle blog featuring food, fashion, and fun in Nashville and occasionally other parts of the world. It is a place where I can share my adventures in both my city and my travels.

I currently work in the music industry for several country and southern rock artists, and my blog serves as a hobby/creative outlet. I love getting to know my readers and other bloggers, so be sure to stop by and say hi! 😉

    Reading really helps me with my writing. I like reading about a lot of non-fiction books written by celebrities. I love when celebrities actual voices transfer to their writing voices.

      What a good point! I haven’t read many books by celebrities, but the ones I have read, I enjoyed because of hearing their voices in them. Are there any really good ones in particular that you’ve enjoyed?

    I usually try writing something different – out of my comfort zone. I find it's refreshing and it really helps when I go back to my usual style/genre.

      Yes! That can definitely work. When I do that, I usually try my hand at poetry. Really, really awful poetry.

    I am so happy that I found a blogger that’s writting and is an English teacher! I love to write AND I want to be an English teacher (or an elementary school teacher). Though, my university program is “Teaching English as a Second Language” because I am French-Canadian.
    What do you like to write?

      Ah welcome! Just so you know, I’m no longer a teacher, as I had health problems and needed to quit. But I was trained as one and taught and am now a graduate student studying English literature.

      I really love to write fiction, especially realistic fiction. My first novel was set in modern NYC!
