Becoming a “Beta” Writer
There’s no magic recipe here. No ginormous secrets. The fact is to become a better writer, you have to read better.
John Obidi, my mentor in matters of industry domination, reiterated this to me about a week ago. Coincidentally, that was exactly what I talked about in this week’s episode of The Authors Platform.
There’s no shortcut to becoming a better writer but to read and write more.
I once had a coaching student who I was working with on her writing ability. When she approached me and told me what the issue was, I gave her weekly writing and reading targets. She didn’t understood why I did that at first. She probably thought I would sit her down and start teaching her the rules of writing or something, but I’ve learnt that the best place to learn is in the place of doing.
Following my instructions critically, she was able to record exponential growth in her writing and speaking abilities.
Do not be too lazy or too busy to dive into and loose yourself in the pages of a good book. You never know what you might learn and how that knowledge can affect your growth as a writer.
Read and write more, and you will become a writer you are proud of, hands down.
