5 Steps to Improve Your Creative Writing Skills

There’s nothing more challenging and tricky than acquiring creative writing skills. You may ask how to get rid of that 'I-have-poor-skills-in-creative-writing' feeling and finally reach some progress. Well, some of our practical guides and activities below should help you out with this ‘creative’ issue and contribute to your improvement. The recommendations here can be handy to novice writers both and surely students to help them out with creative essays and tasks similar to that. In other case, students may choose to order essay online from one of the reliable essay writing providers that would instantly and perfectly solve that problem for you.

Practice More

We can’t mention the ‘Practice makes perfect’ golden rule here. There wouldn’t be any solution to your issue unless you get over yourself and practice the writing. Almost no one has an ability to produce their work straight away – most of the people have to find their own writing strategy, inspirational mood, and conducive working conditions to produce interesting and exciting stories.

Create Your Style

If you can’t stand too metaphorical language with tons of unnecessary descriptions, don’t write in this manner. Who told you that writing like an 18th-century novel writer is the key to success? Choose the style you’re comfortable with and you’ll always succeed.

Try Out Something New

 You might be ok with writing detective stories or bulky romance novels, although it’s quite a bad idea to get hung up on one genre/story type. Experiment with that even if you’re not satisfied with how you write – rather focus on establishing good writing habits.

Learn to Start

Blank page, pen in the hand and you, having no idea how to start… Does it sound like typical you? From our own experience, it could be a real obstacle. To help you get started, there exist several helpful exercises for you to overcome the 'blank-page' stage. The goal of such exercises is to get you concentrated on your writing and stimulate your imagination to bring up more ideas. Remember though that you may change and adjust all of your exercises to yourself. Here are several helpful examples:

- 7x7x7. Open the seventh book from your bookshelf, open it on the seventh page and look for the seventh sentence. Start your writing with that sentence, but limit the length to 7 lines.

- First. Start out with describing some of your memorable first moments- first kiss, love or even the first day at school –  strong memories leave tons of emotions that bear excellent stories.

- Atlas. Take the map, close your eyes and randomly put your finger somewhere on it. Pretend that you’re traveling around the spotted country and describe everything you “see, experience or feel”.

- Dream. Think of some of your sacred dreams and write them down to the tiniest detail. Try to answer the questions Who?, What?, When?, Where?, How? and Why?

Put in Order Your Working Place

Writers value their writing spaces, as this is the only place where they can’t be disturbed and feel themselves the most inspirational. If you’re living along with somebody else, let your family members/friends/roommates know that you need some quiet and claim your writing time. It’s always better to warn that you’ll be unavailable for another hour or two beforehand. If you still haven’t found your 'spot', explore your possible options. Maybe you’ll feel comfortable somewhere in the backyard of your house or in the attic and you will finally experience that “flow” of inspiration you have been always waiting for.
