What can make a Writer Unpopular?
Improve writing skills
Writers continue to write
Mistakes are made by anyone.
If you are a true writer that makes a difference to your character in writing.
Every writer wants to be the perfect writer in showing off their work to the public.
You require proper writing skills to communicate with your reader effectively.
Most people write in the way they speak as I do.
You are taught to speak in a different way with a different accent, and as you get older you hold on to that.
My point, the way you speak is the way you write.
Some writers can make the most stupid errors such as the misuse of ''they're and you're''
The simple misused words can drive your readers up the wall. You are trusted to deliver the best, and to inform your readers of the most helpful information.
The silly errors can make any writer most unpopular.
When you are impatient to publish your work such mistakes are bound to pop up.
You type what you were taught not what you should have been taught.
I know that the English language is spoken in a different approach in America, and in the proper manner of the British spoken language.
For me that is already two very different approaches.
If you are not an English speaker, you may not understand the actual meaning of most words and in all tenses.
The pronunciation of certain words can be difficult. In the act of identifying English words would also be an obstacle in many cases for new writers.
Even when the grammar is correct, you tend to use your words in a different way.
This happens when you think in your native language.
I too can make the mistake or error in such words. I do speak the English language daily, and it is my first language.
The way I was taught to speak is the way I write.
How can a writer become unpopular?
A writer may omit or leave out the serial comma.
What is a serial comma?
When you have a continuous sentence.
'' I had to buy milk, sugar, flour, and eggs.''
In using the serial comma your sentence makes more sense to your readers.
Writers never give up on writing
Sometimes a writer is not familiar with the correct use of the hyphen.
Some words don't need to be hyphenated and yet you still choose to do that.
For some reason writers feel the following words need a hyphen:
Hyphenated words are used to show that the rest of the word is continued on the next line.
Another rule I learned of the hyphenated word, most writers don't know when not to use the hyphenate compound adjectival phrase.
Like, in a word such as this one ''mainly'' and even when the phrase is in front of the noun, for example, as in ex.
Do you get insulted when other writers talk down to you?
If a writer uses unrecognized words in an article won't that get you feeling less-confident in your writing skills?
Writers write for pleasure, or to earn online. When a writer takes their work seriously, it should be most understandable to all readers.
Be fair and understanding about the way you produce that article.
Don't only think of your needs; also think of the needs of your readers.
Avoid torturing the English language to make it most difficult to read.
What about the double spaces to separate sentences?
I have discovered this one recently and had no idea it was effective in the old days with old typewriters.
One space works well for me.
You got to check on your spaces before submitting articles.
Check your passive sentences
The Passive voice is formed when using ''be'' and the past participle of a verb. The subject of a Passive clause does not perform the action expressed by the verb but is affected by it.
''He's been murdered'' The verb is in the passive.
I found another mistake that can make a writer unpopular.
The incorrect way of capitalizing titles and the subtitles can be a down fault.
Title: The Simple Herbs of Herbal Teas and Indian Spices
Subtitle: The Many Different Ways of Using Herbal Teas and Indian Spices
You will notice that not all the words are capitalized only the important words are capitalized it is the correct way.
Ever used underlining poorly?
It is not a good idea to form text with underlining.
Your reader will get a different feedback from your work.
It would look like you have a dead link in your book or article.
Writers can be inconsistent
Make sure, every detail is in place and all information gives your reader the correct idea of your article or book.
Have a form of structure in writing.
Still most writers tend to overuse adjectives.
You can't over describe objects or people.
The lack of guidance can make a writer go the wrong way.
Use subheadings if you need to.
A long paragraph can look boring and not so professional.
Effective reading is a help to all writers.
I don't look at my work as perfect, and don't expect perfection from any writer. If you want to be popular you got to take the time and make the effort to deliver your best work.
When you choose to be heard and popular with hard work you can make that possible.
Writing is not always what you want it to be but with more reading you can be successful.
Writing may not be for everyone as it is a slow process in earning a substantial income.
I find that writing works well for me and if you don’t try you will never know what works best for you.
I found out writing worked best for me when I moved to a foreign country.
I opened my mind to another life, and had to go in a different direction. I did not plan to write online, or traditionally.
Writing came into my life to keep the English language as part of me for always. It is easy to lose one language when focusing on another.
The most spoken language had to be the English language. I could not go any other way.
The Croatian language is not my native language, so speaking the language at home was not on my agenda.
My focus stayed with what I knew best.
Beginners will find this hub most useful.
I enjoy writing and sharing my thoughts online.
To be that famous writer keep on writing and sharing your work.
Expand on small projects and see how far you can go with your writing skills.
Never give up on what you best enjoy.
You don't have to write every word perfectly when you begin writing, you can learn as you go along.
Most writers don't get it right from the beginning.
Don't be too precious about your writing, show improvement in daily practices.
Writing is the waiting game because you always wait to see your results.
To climb up the ladder in writing you must read and write daily.
My advice to all writers:
To be a good writer writer, continue writing, and when you don't write to publish online save those thoughts on paper for next time.
Ignore what others have to say continue getting your word out there.
Write about pain, about pleasure where ever your writing takes you, write about it.
True Quote from a True Writer
“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” ― Maya Angelou

Young Writers be alert!
“Advice to young writers? Always the same advice: learn to trust our own judgment, learn inner independence, learn to trust that time will sort the good from the bad – including your own bad.” ― Doris Lessing
