Coming Soon: A guide for improving your creative writing skills
A few months ago, I wrote a post about the therapeutic power and general usefulness of writing for yourself (link at the end of the post). I gave a few tips and tricks to get started along with an discussion/explanation of why I think it is so powerful to write for the sake of writing and just for yourself.
I have decided, however, to create a guide on how to improve your (creative) writing skills for when you're writing for a public audience. This includes writing for a blog or writing essays, articles, reports, dissertations, or on public forums (social media?). In other words, for anything that you need to write where more than 2 people are going to read your content. This will be a multi-week project (perhaps even months) so make sure to sign up to the newsletter if you want to stay up-to-date with every part of the guide and get extra useful tips that will supplement the guide!
I know, there are zillions of guides out there that already do this. What's so unique about this one then? Well, if you enjoy the way I write, then I think you'll really like this guide. Otherwise, no hard feelings!
If it goes well, I might figure out how to turn it into a PDF format so that you can read it one streamlined setup instead of multiple blog-posts scattered all over the universe (or Internet). Heck, if it really kicks off I might make another guide in the future on another topic, but let's just take it one step at a time. To do all this, however, I'm really going to need your feedback when I'm finished with it! I would really appreciate if you leave a comment (anonymously, if you wish) for each part of the guide once it comes out so that I know what works, what doesn't work, and what needs improvement.
Lastly, I will still be writing regular blog posts, in alternating weeks, in addition to this little experiment so that the content on the blog stays nice and varied.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to this project, so stay tuned for more!
See you, Space Cowboy.
