How do I become a better writer?
"The difference between the almost right word and the right word is the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning." - Mark Twain
Becoming a better writer means paying attention to the details:
What makes me hesitate when I put my pencil to paper?
What small idea can blossom into a full-length document?
What words convey the life around me?
Whether you are writing a novel, company ad, or college essay, you can always improve the content and format by looking at the little things. Really, it's just a comma that can save a life:
Let's eat Grandpa.
Let's eat, Grandpa.
