How to write your novel, short story, poem

It’s a new year. If your resolution is to write, here are a few ways: 

  1. Sit at your desk.
  2. Write.
  3. Revise.
  4. Repeat above steps.

These are the four basic steps. 

Everything you hope to accomplish in whatever you decide to write will develop from following these steps.

One last bit of advice: remember, you can write a novel. Or a short story. Or a poem. Just know that it will take years to develop the skills to write something that isn’t boring and makes sense to a reader.

The more time you put in writing daily – the quicker you will achieve your writing goals.  You can always achieve your writing goals – publication goals are an entirely different story.
