Overview

If you write regularly, then you'll probably be familiar with writer's block. There's nothing worse than that feeling of staring at your screen for hours on end - not knowing what to write, or feeling paralyzed by perfectionism.

The trick is to stop fearing mistakes. Whether or not you're making errors, you're becoming a better writer with each sentence you write. So keep going! Embrace the power of intentional improvement. At each step, writing provides opportunities to become better at it. If it weren't for learning and practicing the secrets to writing well, we'd never have those chances for success.

These secrets take time and effort to learn, unless you've got a book like bestselling author William Zinsser's On Writing Well to hand. With this book in your toolkit, you'll become a great writer long before you ever thought possible.
