Writing is a skill that helps in all areas of your life from your business, marketing, relationships, or filmmaking. Here are three shortcuts that will change your writing forever:
- Write every day. Even if it is ten minutes a day. Writing emails and text messages don’t count.
- Read every day. Get a good book and put it on the toilet if you must. Emails, blogs, text messages don’t count unless they are related to improving your writing.
- Write from the heart. Write with frightening and painful honesty and people will connect to your writing.
Bonus: Re-write your work. Creating drafts are part of the process like a sculptor chipping away at the rock until it is polished.
This will help you improve your storytelling and communication dramatically.
P.S. If these don’t feel like short and easy ways to improve your writing, remember this quote, “The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. The longest distance between two points is the shortcut.”
