How to Write Better

November 5, 2021

281 tips on How to Write Better — that’s a kind of a definitive guide for any freelance writer, put together by Matt Rudnitsky. Some examples:

  • Look for stories first, ideas later. Good storytelling beats good ideas.
  • Grammar is a tool, not a rule.
  • Don’t edit while you write. You can’t create and analyze at the same time.
  • 20 minutes of focused writing beats hours of distracted “writing.”
  • Don’t rely on inspiration to write. Create a unique writing habit that guarantees you write regularly.
  • Before you write, get in a good mood.
  • For long-term success, you need to build and own an asset. For most writers, this is an email list.
