I read many of the best writers here

I follow one rule for consistency

“I like to get ten pages a day, which amounts to 2,000 words.”

— Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

I started writing slow, then I accelerated

I apply tips from other writers

I developed a “writing process”

I learned to never run out of ideas

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

— Stephen King

I know the pubs where I’ve submitted my articles

I start with an engaging intro/story

I’ve learned to get rejected a lot

I read the guidelines

Final thoughts

Keep writing. Writing itself won’t make you great by magic. But you’ll surely find the tools that’ll make you better in the journey.
