20 Sep 09 5 More Ways to Improve Your Writing Part-III

Writing is fun, if you are in “the zone,” but it is the most torturous activity, if you are not in the zone. Today’s writing improvement tips will help you remain in the zone for long. I will tell you how to make your mind come into “the zone” just when it hears the word go.

Test your limit

The best way to train your mind to enter “the zone” is to force it to do what it never anticipated to do like asking your mind to concentrate on writing when crowd around you in the coffee house is having a gala. Make yourself write for 24 hours straight, or try writing in a toilet or while on a plane. The point is to test your limit.

Write and write more

This is the best advice anyone can give you to improve your writing. Write something, and then write something more about it, until you are exhausted, and then rewrite the whole stuff. If you want you can write it from different perspective altogether.

Have you taken a trip lately?

Take a road trip, or a train trip. If you want, you can even hitchhike on a truck to experience the world around you. The more experience you will have the better flow your writing will get. You cannot learn to write or be in “the zone” while sitting in the comfort of your air conditioned home.

Read, think and write

Do not be on the spree to complete yet another book. Go slow. Read the passage and meditate over it. Think why it has been written the way it has been written, and how you can make it better. Think over the story line, the development of characters, etc. Think and then read again.

Watch movies

A movie is nothing but a story told in a visual form. The more movies you watch, the better grasp you will have on the development of plots, characters, and story. Watch good quality films. Do not indulge in mediocre stuff.
