In writing there is such a thing as good and bad writers. The category I would fall under is a bad writer. I know as you read this you think this person has no confidence, but I am just being honest. In the book On writing by Stephen King he says that you can become a good writer or even a great writer with hard work, dedication, and timely help. I mean how did the people we all call great writers become great writers. They worked hard at it, and I am sure somewhere down the road someone helped them become the writer they knew they could become.
In Stephen Kings book On Writing he says there is two things to become a better writer, read a lot and write a lot. This goes back to the hard work and dedication we were talking about in the last paragraph. If you do not read and write a lot you will just stay the writer you already are. The reason you read to become a better writer is to measure yourself up against other writers to see where you stand. You may also find your self adopting a style of writing that you find exciting.
To become a good writer not only do you have to find the time, but also the joy to become a good writer. Do not just write because you have to. Find a way that makes writing fun to you.Once you do this you will work harder and see the many improvements you have made. Writing is just like a sport. If you love to play baseball you will hit off the tee for hours to improve your swing. The same goes for writing, if you want to become a better writer you first have to find the joy to write and practice at it. So find the joy to write and become a great writer not just a good writer.
