We know that practice makes everything better, but does that apply to writing as well? I mean, how does writing improve? Based on what? If I write the same crap over and over again that makes me better? Probably not. It will probably be easier to find the same words and phrases, but if I don’t learn new things, I don’t think my writing will improve.
Writing gets better with time and practice, but not without bringing something new. I guess it’s all about the purpose of that writing. Why do you write in the first place? Is it to get rid of some frustrations? Is it to understand some things better by trying to give them a logical form? Is it to connect with people? The destination decides the road and the vehicle.
Regardless the reason of writing, it definitely helps. Practicing makes us better and we will create better writing, but the difference will be made by the things we put in. Emotions and information are the two best reasons for improving our writing, but not without practice. But then again, it’s all about the reason behind.
What do you want to achieve with your writing?
