For those who are much involved in freelance writing and like to write in the form of articles, blogs,or who run their own personal pages for earning something out of the whole activity, the significance of these features become important. The question here in concern is what are those certain qualities that make a writer successful. The features that are described below are the ones that can help a writer to attain a greater and find a better way of success in the writing arena.

WHY THESE QUALITIES MAKE A WRITER SUCCESSFUL ?

1.CONCENTRATION ON THE TITLE

One of the most vital things for a successful writer is the ability to focus and concentrate on topics he writes for. Deviating from the main title of his writing piece is something that is not very appreciable. Those writers who concentrate and write according to the central idea of their main topic are the ones who successfully manage to retain the interest of their readers. Concentrating on the title is a quality which a good writer possesses that helps him a lot in attracting more readership.

2.BELIEF IN WRITING TO THE POINT

Writing to the point and including a thorough understanding of the writing subject at hand are the features which a good writer possesses. Readers look for something which is solid and logical. They do not like to read something that brags on and on about things which doesn't have any connection with what they write about. Therefore, without mentioning some extra stories and sticking to the point is something which a reader looks for. Short but sweet is what is “in” these days among readers and a successful writer takes care of that.

3.CORRECT USAGE OF LANGUAGE

One of the most vital things for a writer is the correct use of the language. People don’t appreciate if a certain piece of writing does not make sense to them. Most probably those who find any fault with the use of grammar or sentences will get bored and may leave further reading with a bad impression in mind. Therefore for a successful writer or a blogger, the correct usage of language including grammar, correct sentences, spellings, and punctuation is highly significant.

4.TAKING CARE OF ORIGINALITY

Authenticity of the written content is something that matters also for a good writer. In the world of plagiarism or the trend of posting copied content, originality is a factor that has become more and more vital. People who write original and authentic are the ones who get more appreciation by readers. Therefore, a writer who carries the trait of authenticity within himself is bound to get more recognition and success instead of the ones who concentrate on short cuts, copy, and steal ideas from others word by word.

5.KEEPING THE READERS INTEREST

Readers are always looking for the new. Therefore a writer who keeps on updating and adding new content to his list of writings is someone who is bound to get greater success. Updating or writing regularly and keeping the readers interest in mind is vital. A good writer knows how to entertain his readers and which is a trait that a writer successfully employs while he writes.

6.ALWAYS TRYING TO IMPROVE

A good writer is always open to improvements in his work. This is a quality which helps the writer grow more in his writing skills. The feedback and criticism which a writer receives can always help in making amends or improvements with his writing abilities, style, and ideas. This feature is not only important for the writer but is also a positive characteristic that creates wonders with his skill of writing.

7.THE CREATIVE EYE

Creativity is something which is an admirable trait of a successful writer. It is the creative mind behind every piece of writing that keeps the reader entertained and keeps him coming back for more. Therefore a successful writer is the one whose writing truly reflects the creativity and uniqueness behind his ideas.

8.BELIEF IN BEING PERSISTENT

The key ingredient and the most important of all the traits of a successful writer is that they believe in perseverance. They try to move ahead step by step and never give up on the task of writing. All successful writers carry this very noticeable quality that has helped them to achieve the heights of greatness in the field of writing.


For a successful writer, using the abilities and talent he has is the fundamental basis of the success in the field of writing. The traits described above of successful writers are the ones which are much needed for climbing up the ladder of success. A good writer always knows how to polish the skills and qualities he possesses and this feature is the one that helps out on every point in time.
