Master the Art of Writing

Writing is about distilling your thoughts and in that process, learning the skills needed to communicate your ideas persuasively. After all, we communicate so that we can influence.

But good writing takes a lot of time, effort and dedication.

Its beauty is visible when what is complicated is made to look easy.

Two factors that have an impact on your art :

  1. How much you read;
  2. How much you write.

Learn from those around you, who are mastering the same art, with the techniques which work for them. Explore new ways and be curious.

And write.

Write to find your voice.
Write often.
Write with abandon (that’s what editing is for).
Write about many things or write about one thing – it does not matter. And remember that it’s easier to maintain a daily habit than a monthly one.

What works for you? What features are you responding to when you come across good writing? Please share your thoughts in the comments, as I too want to learn from you.

I run the VerticalDistinct platform to support both Human Resource and Technology professionals. I blog on the entrepreneurial journey. I also write for Women of HR and post on LinkedIn. Let’s connect, let’s learn from each other. Let me know how I can support you.
