    What makes a good author?

    How do you define a good author?  Is it their writing style, the content, etc?

    I believe that technical proficiency alone is not enough. A good author should be able to make the reader lose themselves in the work. Words on a page should flow with passion, zest and lead the readers eyes to the conclusion, logical, or otherwise.

    Good author for me is a person who is able to write great content quality, while able to captivate and maintain high level of followers. In simple words of course smile

    I define a good author is one that does not take credit for something he/she did not write.  A good author is also one whose content is well structured, interesting and the quality of the content projects the passion on the topic or story being written.

    A good author lives and breathes letters. A good author is always writing. Not just major works but editorials and other small works. And a good author has a good relationship with as many editors and fellow writers as possible.

    The author who writes in such a way that the readers like to read from start to end without stop.

    I believe a lot of qualities make a good author. The top ones according to me are perception, strong hold on a language, analytical skills, and a lot of good reading.

    A good writer is someone who is able to stir emotions and make you think. Also, being able to write well is a great perk!
