Being a successful writer and a blogger, surely there are many tips that we can learn from her after all the blogosphere in Malaysia is growing.
From an interview between Mary (the Chief Editor of Write To Done) and Liz, there are four very important keynotes that we all should take note in order to be an outstanding writer (or blogger).
Connect To Your Readers
There is a reason why it is important to connect to your readers. First and foremost, you need people to read your words. You are not writing just to display it to yourself but you are displaying to the whole world. You share your knowledge and thoughts but that would be useless without readers. By connecting to your readers, you are creating a two-way communication.
Listen To Your Readers
Now that you have your readers, you don’t expect them to just read without giving feedback, right? Learn to listen to your readers with an open mind. Trust your readers that they are making statements that will help you discover yourself in the process. Treasure their comments about your writing and accept criticism if there is any. You will learn to write better in times to come. Practice makes perfect.
Write From Your Heart
Be real to yourself and your audience. Share your feelings, your knowledge and your experience full of insights and information. Create something inspires your readers so that they can relate to themselves in a practical way. In other words, be passionate in your writing and you will reach out to your readers. There is no reason to write just for money. I know there are many writers out there but not every writers can write from the heart.
Love For Doing What You Do
“Do what you love in service to those who love what you do.” - Steve Farber
This is by far the most important element of all because if you have no love for writing, then your writing would be dead. When you love writing, naturally your writing will flourish. Take it as a mirror of reflection. Your readers can see you shine through your writing and they will love you for what you are and what you do.
If you can try to implement these tips in your daily writing, you are well on your way to become an outstanding writer.
