Before you start writing, have some preparation. It can make a big difference. Through this, you can coherently write what you want to convey. For example, if you create a flow of how your narrative will flow, you can put the details a lot easier compared to writing automatically.

Every writer has their way of writing. Identify what your writing voice is, this approach your readers can distinguish you from the rest. Your writing voice is your trademark from other writers.
5. Keep Writing!
Start writing and stop coming up with excuses. You cannot find time to write, you need to create one for yourself. Be fixated and be in your world while writing. Don’t mind what’s happening around you. Focus your attention on your writing journey.
6. Take Breaks
Do not forget to take breaks from time to time. Never overwork or underwork yourself. Manage your time. Enjoy a little nap, a walk, a snack, or an exercise on your break. Have some enjoyment. But, don’t pick up your phone, or you will lose track of time.
“Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and the only thing you have to offer.”
7. Never Give Up!
Persevere in writing. Keep what you are doing. It’s better to start slow than not to start at all. Hard work makes a difference.
