If you wrote down all the suggestions for writing well from successful writers, and tossed them into a hat, the top 10 would look something like this:

1. Write every day, even if it is only for 10 minutes.

2. Use the active not the passive voice.

3. Write like you talk.

4. Never use clichés.

5. Read what you write out loud, or, better yet, have someone else read it to you—sound matters.

6. Go easy on the adjectives and adverbs.

7. Keep it moving.

8. Show, don’t tell.

9. Finish it.

10. Delete the boring stuff.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

Author: Sherrie Miranda

I am an author who writes in order to create more peace and understanding in the world. I am a teacher who has taught students from many countries of the world. I am also a life and writing coach. I love to travel and first traveled to other countries before finally deciding to see some of the U.S., places that foreigners I met have been to, but that I hadn't. I am happily married to a teacher who identifies himself first, as a musician. We hope to someday travel together to places where I read my novel(s) and speak to people about loving life while Angelo plays his piano and entertains the audience too. I also hope to assist seniors and troubled teens to write their life stories in order to heal. Life has much to offer so I always encourage young people to hang in there and know that things WILL get better.
