Describe A Good Writer in 150 Words

Updated on April 6, 2012

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.

      Thanks for taking part in the exercise jacksoel! I agree completely about the no fluff! I put a limit on the word count because so many writers get carried away, writing pages and pages when just a paragraph of carefully placed words will do. I enjoyed your description :)

      I know my post wasn't 150 words. But a writer should stop when he/she is finished. No fluff! Thanks for the was fun to think about what makes a good writer.

      A good writer is one who writes often and writes with various techniques and strategies. The writer is concise and precise with words; punctuates with ease; and frames the piece of writing with heart and soul. The piece must reflect the writer's voice and style. When one reads a piece of writing, that person should connect in some way with the writer. That piece of writing should be a bridge from mind to mind. A good piece of writing is memorable.
