What advice would you give a writter when they feel their stuff is nit good enough.
tell them the truth abour your take on their works, if they feel they can give more, then they should do their best,
this is what i ask people to do. read my junk. tell me it sucks or im the worst writer you have ever seen . but please . please . read my junk
you're welcome. it's a process, and like, say math or music, the only way to get better and better at it is to practice your craft.
Merry Christmas and good luck!
As a young writer that feels I can always do better in return am always doubting my work, this what someone told me...each piece a work you write from the heart is a part of you so if you feel your work isn't good enough believe in you and give your all in your work
Don't quit yer day job, just in case things don't work out... but, there ain't no reason for giving up on writing, though. There's a lot of crap out there, and a lot of it moving around in literary circles, so the appeal is somewhere out there. Even if your writing is exciting to only one in a million, remember that there are seven billion people on this earth, so there oughta be seven thousand fans out there right now...
The trick is to find those people and thrill them with everything you got...
well , i dunno , read there stuff for em I guess and , based on your experience give em some constructive critsism (or however ya spell it LOL)
*Take time to develop the ideas, to where you are satisfied with them.
*It doesn't hurt to write a second, third or even fourth draft of something.
*Have a friend edit and help to developed the idea or point out where thought are incomplete.
*Don't be afraid to cut out unnecessary words, thought, or descriptions.
*Developing your voice comes with time. Don't be afraid to experiment with different styles of writing. In the meantime, read a variety of writing. Notice what works for you and what doesn't; ie. why you like what you like.
*If grammar and spelling are an issue, run your work through a grammar and spelling check. (I have one on my tool bar.)
Princess-sisi, I'm a perfectionist too. That's why I only have 3 hubs! You have to learn to recognize when you've written something worth reading, even if it isn't up to your standards. Also, remember that you can edit hubs after they're published! I've been tweaking mine over the last several days.
As far as writing rough drafts goes...I agree with Ivorwen, drafts are very helpful! I usually hand-write a rough draft, type it up, print it out, mark all over it, rewrite by hand, then type it up again. You don't need to do that much though! Just write a draft and then sleep on it. Sometimes coming back to a piece you've written will highlight everything that needs to be fixed, or you may find that you were too harsh before!

Does bad grammar and spelling bother you?I don't expect everyone to be an English professor, but for goodness sake people, use some punctuation and a built in spell-check! This is primarily aimed at forums, hubs, and places like YouTube comments. Places where people could take the time to read over...

I think HubPages is just a terrific opportunity for writers to write and make connections within the HubPages community. However, I am concerned about the quality of some of the hubs I see. Even if the writing is fresh and lively, if the spelling, punctuation, or grammar are poor, then...

I have just found this new writing site, that after spending nearly an hour taking a test to prove my worthiness! I was wondering if it was worth it! they pay you about 2 dollars each article if it is 300 words, but of course you have to write it about 3 times! is it worth it? thanks

I calculated that if my page views continue at their current rate, I'll get my first payout in 2016!!! I better go get back to happy hubbing. Also, received my first Zzz tonight, a sleepy poem. Ho hum. Forgive my humorous cynicism but I do believe that as I produce more quality-optimized and search...

Is there a difference between good writing and quality writing?I read a lot of hubs that are covering great topics, hitting key points and written in an engaging manner, but they have many grammatical errors. Now, I may be a bit of a grammar and spelling snob, but I feel like those two elements are...
