Being an “Effective Writer”

Got another writing blog to share with everyone!

This one’s by Jeff Goins. You can find him at Skim through his about page. Goins talks about the original intent of his blog and comes to the realization that there’s a “community of like-minded individuals sharing many of the same struggles.” I love this!  I think many writers/bloggers can relate, too.

After all, I began my own blog (which is going on one week strong already! Yippee!) to connect with other writers and hopefully learn from them and maybe teach them a thing or two myself. I’m sure lots of others do the same!

Anyway, the post I want to share from Goins’ blog is called “How to Be an Effective Writer.” He details his five recommendations for new authors on how to improve. Here’s a quote:

“As an aspiring writer, you want to get your point across without much difficulty, and that takes intentionality. Forget about being a “good” writer. That’s subjective. You want to be an effective writer and accomplish what you set out to do. Here are five tips for how to be an effective writer…”

I’m especially a fan of the first tip. My grandmother did almost the same thing when I was very little and just starting to read and write! The rest of Jeff’s post can be found at this link:

Hope you find it as useful as I did! Happy writing!
