Describe A Good Writer in 150 Words
A great warm up exercise
This is a great exercise to get your brain into writing mode. In just 150 words, tell me what you think a good writer is. I've started you off with my own 150 words. Make sure you post exactly 150 words as this will give good practice at editing and making sure every word matters.
What is a good writer? A good writer awakens intrigue or reaffirms interest by carefully weaving together descriptive or informative words, correct grammar and a flowing syntax. A good writer opens the reader’s senses, allowing them to indulge in imagination or learn through association. The writer should research their audience, injecting personality into their style allowing the reader to feel personally spoken to right from the page. A good writer will effortlessly create a world to escape to, or a classroom to learn in, right inside the reader’s head, allowing every day life to melt away into a distant realm. A good writer will be their own critic, proof-reader and editor, reading and re-reading several times, checking and perfecting before displaying their work to anyone. If they are a good writer, whether they have written a short shopping list or a series of novels, every word should and does matter.
