Why about what you know and what is important to you. My best hubs have come from seeing a need for that topic in my own life, learning about it for myself, then filling in that missing knowledge by writing a hub.
The next best is to go back and read what you have written at a later time. I catch typos in my hubs constantly. Often on hubs that have been up for some time, but I read them again and something will jump out at me.
Stick to your ideas and never second guess yourself. There is an audience for all types of writing.
There are only two great pieces of writing advice- practice every day and show, don't tell. There isn't much else that will really help you as long as you have a basic grip on grammar, syntax and storytelling basics.
"Re-read everything you write." May sound funny - but hey, the simplest advice are often the best!
This is the best advice I could give to any writer that I was given: "Take any form of criticism and make it constructive. Who knows what you could find in what your readers liked and didn't like about your piece."
The best feed back for me is when people tell me if something I wrote doesn't make sense or is not interesting. Then I can work to fix it. Almost any piece of writing can be improved.If I am unsure about someones suggestion, then I usually ask several people so I can get a consensus before I make a major change.
The best advice I've ever received was from my 7th grade English teacher, Mrs. Allen. She told me to "Never stop Writing!" I have received lots of encouragement from all of my English instructors since middle school. Some negatively phrased; for example my 6th grade English instructor gave our class the task of writing a poem. I do not remember what I wrote exactly, but I wrote a poem encouraging individuals to start learning the word of God as soon as possible because tomorrow is never promised and tomorrow might very well be the day Our Savior returns and at that time it will be too late. Her response upon hearing it was, "Did you write that?" No "well done," "good job," "interesting work," or anything of the like, but nevertheless I viewed it as encouragement.
Excellent question. I haven't been given advice yet. Lots of positive feedback (I perceive it as praise-I hope I don't sound conceited). But Hemingway used to say: Write, write and rewrite until you feel you’ve got it right. Please tell us about you in the end.
Without doubt to Edit, leave it for a while, edit again and edit again...and then edit some more...etc etc you get the picture? cheers
