Try Very Hard!

Writing isn't something that come naturally to everyone, yet it's like playing sport, you practice to improve. Any author would tell an aspiring writer to read a lot and write a lot; writing is something that needs to be practiced. I think that I'm a decent writer. I write poetry, and I read many different things from accomplished authors. As i read their work, I try and compare their style of writing to mine; I look for any particular sentence type that reminds me of my own style of writing. I understand they an author with several works that has been published is much more of a competent writer than myself, therefore I compare to see where I stand; and to notice areas needing improvement with my writing. I believe that the 'tricks' I use really help, and with the feedback from my english instructor I can only improve.
I believe that every writer should have a 'back drop.' A 'back drop' is an area of selected readings that a writer has, he compares himself to those that are greater, and he when he has written anything, he allows someone who is certified to correct his writings, correct his writings. I work very diligently to improve my writing skills; I even consider writing and literature my strongest attribute as a student. My encouragement to other students is to write a lot, a read the works of those who far superior writers.

  1. Torrence I agree with your post. To be the best writter you can be you have to read a lot and write a lot. Also comparing yourself to other writers is very helpful. It can help you determine the writer you are.
