    What advice can you give to writers who want to improve their writing in a motivational way?

    One of the best ways to improve writing skills on a visual basis is to memorize correct grammar and punctuation rules. If you are giving your writing to anyone else to look at, accurate grammar will show that you are professional and competent, as well as making your writing look clean, neat, and generally easy to follow. Invest in a writing style manual to reinforce basic punctuation and grammar rules, and don’t be afraid to ask other writers for help if you get stuck on a tricky sentence.

    The best advice is to read and read as much as you can. Then write and write as much as you can. You may even write to earn and hence you will learn. Don't use complex style rather write what can be read and understood by an Eight Grader. So use quite simple sentence structure with very simple and easy English. You will be the best writer.

    what I did was join a small writing group.  I write well & thanks to a good education my grammer, punctuation, etc. are all good.  But my writing was ponderous, full of purple prose, and boring.  The excellent group of all published writers, taught me a great deal, how to be brief and to the point, keep the story going, keep the reader interested. 
    As a result one of my short stories is to be broadcast over Valley Public Radio, Fresno, California, in April, I have just published a memoir entitled SHIBARAKU, Memories of Japan 1926-1946, and I write for HUB Pages. 
    I hope you can find such a group, they are invaluable.

    As an artist by education I look upon my creative writing as a piece of art and follow the same guidelines: 'Be as art itself - creative, passionate and restless...rather than simply protecting the battlements of the status quo, embrace change, accept change and harness its power..'
    Interconnectedness and relevance of art (or creative writing) is important and yet art and by inference its excellence is an end in itself...always remember these two positions of art, as yin and yang, their balance is in your hands:)

    Writers write something everyday.

    Only through writing can writers improve their writing. There is no short cut to experience.

    Writing groups are good if you have one near you, if not find a writing buddy carefully and work with them.
