I have to be honest here – my writing is horrible. I can’t deny it… At least I don’t like it.
I don’t only mean grammar-wise (although grammar is pretty horrible as well), I most importantly mean the ability to express myself through writing. I haven’t really found my voice yet. It’s specially hard since English isn’t my first language.
All my life I have had the belief that I am not a good writer. I don’t know exactly when it happened, but somehow I have managed to obtain this limiting belief (probably because it’s true )
Then to think about it – I really haven’t done anything about it. I have never taken the effort to learn how I can become a better writer – a better communicator.
When you want to succeed in internet marketing you have to be excellent in communicating. You have to be able to tell a story. You have to be able to get your point across.
I’m writing this post so I can make a conscious decision to become a better writer. In the next 30 day I’m making an effort to better myself. My number one priority will be to learn everything about writing.
I believe writing, like anything else, is a skill that you can develop.
The best way to learn how to write – you guessed it – is to write more. So I need to write a bunch of words. Every day.
Since writing/copywriting is very closely related to marketing and blogging I can post my findings and learnings ( a word?) here. So be ready to get much more ramblings from me.
Also, since I have wanted to write an ebook for a long time, it is a perfect time to start. So be prepared that the beginning of the book will be much worse then the ending (hopefully).
So the first thing I did was I picked up The Elements of Style by Strunk & White. I have heard many great things about this book.
I would love to know what have you to done to get better at writing?
