2016 April A to Z
“When you stop growing you start dying.”
― William S. Burroughs, Junky
G is for Growing as a Writer
Growing as a writer is one of the most important things we can do for our writing. That may seem obvious but besides writing daily what do you do to grow as a writer? Writing workshops, reading, writing challenges and contests, joining a writers group and staying inspired are some of the things you can do. But what about vocabulary? Are you actively work on growing your vocabulary as a writer? I like to randomly open a dictionary, choose a word on the page that either I don’t use regularly or I’m unfamiliar with, and free write for three to five minutes about that word. Never stop learning.
How do you keep growing as a writer? What writing challenges or contests have you participated in besides the A to Z Challenge?
