: 10 Writing Tips from the Masters :


I saw this on a website and I thought I'd share.


1. Cut the boring parts.

I try to leave out the parts that people skip. Elmore Leonard

Unless you’re writing for personal reasons alone, you need to consider the attention of your readers. There’s no point in publishing content that isn’t useful, interesting, or both.

2. Eliminate unnecessary words.

Substitute “damn” every time you’re inclined to write “very;” your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. Mark Twain

I used to feel that using words like “really”, “actually”, or “extremely” made writing more forceful. It doesn’t. They only get in the way. Cut them and never look back.

3. Write with passion.

Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. William Wordsworth

It’s not hard to realize that unless you’re excited about your writing no one else will be.

4. Paint a picture.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass. Anton Chekhov

Simply stating something is fine, but when you need to capture attention, using similes, metaphors, and vivid imagery to paint a picture creates a powerful emotional response.

5. Keep it simple.

Vigorous writing is concise. William Strunk Jr.

Maybe it was all those late nights, struggling to fill out mandatory 10 page papers, but many people seem to think that worthwhile writing is long and drawn out. It’s more difficult (and effective) to express yourself in the simplest possible manner.

6. Do it for love!

Write without pay until somebody offers to pay. Mark Twain

When you’re just starting out it’s hard to decide where to begin. So don’t. Just start writing. A blog is a good place to start. The most valuable benefit is the feedback.

7. Learn to thrive on criticism.

You have to know how to accept rejection and reject acceptance. Ray Bradbury

Writing means putting yourself at the mercy of anonymous hecklers and shameless sycophants. Learn to make the most of the insults and distrust the praise.

8. Write all the time.

Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you’re doomed. Ray Bradbury

The way you define yourself as a writer is that you write every time you have a free minute. If you didn’t behave that way you would never do anything. John Irving

9. Write what you know…or what you want to know.

If any man wish to write in a clear style, let him be first clear in his thoughts; and if any would write in a noble style, let him first possess a noble soul. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Learn as much by writing as by reading. Lord Acton

Successful writing is all about trust and authority. It makes sense to write about your area of expertise. If you don’t have an expertise, reading and writing is the best way to develop one and put it on display.

10. Be unique and unpredictable.

I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite. G.K. Chesterton

Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative. Oscar Wilde

Zest. Gusto. How rarely one hears these words used. How rarely do we see people living, or for that matter, creating by them. Yet if I were asked to name the most important items in a writer’s make-up, the things that shape his material and rush him along the road to where he wants to go, I could only warn him to look to his zest, see to his gusto. Ray Bradbury

Following what works will only get you so far. Experiment with new styles, even if it means taking criticism. Without moving forward, you’ll be left behind.


: 10 Quotes that will make you think :


Nothing can help you along in life better than a good quote - something to reflect on when you're at your worst - and you'll find yourself admiring the wise person who said it even though you haven't the slightest clue who he/she is.


“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”

- Martin Luther King Jr.

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

- Mae West

“Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or fucking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.”

- Al Swearengen

"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t."

- Erica Jong

“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”

- Albert Einstein

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”

- Aristotle, Metaphysics

“Any titles, money, or privilege you inherit are actually hindrances. They delude you into believing you are owed respect.”

- Robert Greene

"There's always a little truth behind every: "Just kidding," a little knowledge behind every: "I don't know," a little emotion behind every "I don't care," and a little pain behind every "It's okay.""

- Anonymous

“We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them. We say we love trees, yet we cut them down. And people still wonder why some are afraid when told they are loved.”

- Brandi Snyder

“Nothing lasts forever, so live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the drama, take chances and never have regrets because at one point everything you did was exactly what you wanted.”

- Marilyn Monroe
