Habits of effective Writers

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Writers choose when to write

What are the habits of highly effective writers?

There are many challenges to face up to in the writing world.

There are hundreds or millions of articles about writers on the Internet but one more won’t hurt anyone.

In fact writers learn from such articles.

It improves their knowledge continuously on the topic of writing any little information is of value.

The effective writer is focused and works hard daily.

There are often new projects worked on and failure is enormous.

The effective write has a steady platform, and is well-known.

So, what makes the effective writer unique?

Reading is a big part of the effective writer’s lifestyle.

It is not just about reading books.

The effective writer reads information on the back of bought items, to be familiar with the product.

A routine is formed in writing daily.

Daily writing and is in need for advice from other writers.

The regular routine sticks with the writer and has a creative mind.

Hard work is key to earning substantially for an effective writer.

Writing is treated as a job.

A career taken to heart and is an enjoyable one too.

The mid works wonders when the writer put their mind to that specific topic.

They keep their thoughts intact and know when to stop writing.

An effective writer enjoys new projects, and grasps information such as a sponge draws every drop of water at the kitchen sink.

Writing is rewarding if you work hard at each word.

The process in writing as in the mind of an effective writer is difficult.

Writers don’t do every aspect in the exact same way.

What is Compartmentalize?

For example:

You have different types of personalities; writers have different modes processed in their writing styles.

An effective writer will swirl around in the room and speak in different tones when checking up on drafts.

Then, writing for hours with no breaks.

However, you see it this may sound weird.

Writers need to be in contact with others but would create their private space to be alone when focused on their new project.

Their ideas are close to their hearts as their characters are in their minds.

These characters are not accepted in reality.

The meaningful and the meaningless are combined in writing.

Effective writers make sacrifices daily in their writing small ones and big ones.

Such writers are deprived of a social life.

For some writing is everything to them.

Writing becomes a priority!

I met an effective writer, and have learned lots about this individual during our time together.

A couple of hours daily working to pay off the necessary bills, and hours are spent alone in the apartment to write, and think and write again.

The estranged relationships with their families and friends are of less value.

The choices made by an effective writer, is to write and spend more time alone than to have that social life like most people would hope for in their lives.

Such writers choose to write over having a well-paid job.

This makes the effective writer try anything to help others from their work.

There are more failures for the effective writer.

I noticed this person perseveres and risks daily challenges in writing.

It is these types of writers that don’t succeed.

The failures they experience make them want to try each day.


For the love of writing!

Effective writers want to be famous writers, but claiming to be writers without having anything published.

Do you think such writers are afraid of rejection?

We discussed the habits of the effective writer and I chose to write about it.

You think you know everything about writers but something new often comes along when you lest expect it.

Writers don’t need to write daily. Writing daily keeps you away from new experiences.

You like to write it doesn’t mean you must write when you don’t feel like it.

Focus on something else.

Every writer wants to be successful but with certain limits.

What your weak aspects of writing?

There is room for improvement in writing, but it comes with a price, disappointment and rejection.

You do get those moments when you wish you had never started writing and want to quit after a rejection.

Writing can be fun, interesting and most enjoyable if you focus on element at a time.

Make the focus on the weakest points of your writing.

In this way you feel encouraged and positive in your work.

The way to focus on writing is to keep the ideas in your head.

You can read as much you want and write as much as you like nothing will come to you if there is no proper focus in writing.

Take a break from writing it doesn’t mean you have given up. It just means your comeback will be more exciting.

Focus on writing but not like it’s your daily job.

Make writing your great pleasure and not an effort.

Are you satisfied with your writing skills?

Do you submit everything you write?

Do you compare your writing to the work of other writers?

Do you want feedback on your writing?

Listen, learn and let go of your work.

Don’t take little negative comments to heart.

Don’t be discouraged by any bad comment.

Writers want to be good, better, successful, or the best of writers.

How do make all of this happen as a writer?

Writer’s goals are great and hard to have everything as desired.

Are goals useless to most writers?

Attain your steps to writing with short steps.

Be honest in writing and achieve your goals in small pieces.

Do what you know you are capable of and not what you want to show off about.

Goals are worthwhile and meaningful if you go the competitive way.

You can have long term goals and short term goals.

If you set a goal to complete in manuscript in a month and accomplish that goal you are certainly getting ahead.

The best writers make writing look easy.

It is the way a writer presents their work to readers.

Writing is about the writer having freedom of speech.

Be fearless!

Take a chance in writing and be rejected. You can’t always be good at the first time.

Be focused deeply in what you want to share with your readers.

Good writing skills are practiced daily.

To become a better writer, keep the following in mind.

Think carefully of the topic you want to write.

Listen to your heart and to your genre special.

Improve grammar skills.

Be honest in your work.

Share to the point and with simple understanding.

Plan your time for writing.

Have a positive attitude when writing.

The mindset a writer has plays a big role in the daily challenge.

Write what comes to you it makes writing feel effortless.

Stick to the topic.

If you want to write about yourself go ahead and do that too.

The choice is yours in writing.

Writing helped me through all times.

I chose to write and share my work with the friendly community.

The challenges felt easy when I wrote about it on Hub pages.

Feedback from the friendly community encouraged me to continue to share my experiences.

Habits are formed over a fixed routine.

Writers focus easily when alone and in a quiet environment.

You can be a successful writer if you master the different styles of writing.

Random choices of topics are not how successful writers go about their writing.

Every idea and topic are original and that works well with content writers.

How you can ruin your writing practice?

A writer who lacks the interest in reading becomes a lazy writer.

You fail to recognize your mistakes in writing.

Writers don’t write daily.

‘’No time for writing,’’ I think is the oldest excuse mentioned.

It depends on how the individual plans each day.

Some writers write daily while others choose to write when they are free. Most writers don't earn much from writing and need to keep their day jobs.

In my case, I write mostly in the winter when I am free. I have a summer job and need that substantial income.

Sometimes writers just don’t want to write anything on paper.

It is up to you on how you share and make time for writing!

The choice you make about writing daily and how many hours per day, you decide to make the time for writing something of value.

Writers writing daily

Are you are successful writer?

      To be a good writer it is necessary to be a reader too. Reading is always a revelation and teaches us a lot. Useful & helpful observations.

      Chitrangda thank for very much for an insightful comment. Writing is a pleasure for me but may not be for every other writer in that way. Habits of such writers do differ. I appreciate you stopping by. Have a lovely week.

      Valid and well made points with which every writer can relate.

      You are right that reading and writing goes hand in hand. Reading teaches us many things and we also realise our own mistakes. Rejections are part and parcel of writing.

      Every piece of writing is not for publishing but some of it may be a form of self expression.

      Insightful and engaging article ! Thanks for sharing!

      I really appreciated this hub. It talks to the inner writer that speaks. I changed my tune and realized there will always be people who don't like my thoughts, my writing or me. I still want and desire to write no matter how harmful their words can be. So I adopted a new nickname called Rejection. So when they reject me they are really calling me by name. How cool is that. I love the extra added attention. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. I will be thinking of you when I write again. Write beautifully and write with the power of love.

      Very good presentation of the characteristics and habits of effective writers and the problems that they face.

      Rejection and criticism are two factors that always victimize the writers.

      Very well done. I think that overcoming our resistance/fear is the most important foundation. So I never write with the intention to publish in anyway. Just my method.

      Very nice summary! I don't know any writers who are not afraid of rejection. It just goes with the territory, I'm afraid. We do what we love knowing full well that we will be rejected 99 times out of 100.
