11 signs you're a good writer (word nerds will love # 11). You don't mind being edited... in fact, you think it's a good thing. You read stuff on how to improve your writing (like this blog post). You broke the rules. You don't wait to be inspired. You'snap' spelling and grammar mistakes on your phone... and enjoy sharing them on social media... especially when someone calls you out for one. You love writing letters. You love stories. You collect words. You spend hours brainstorming ideas and coming up with titles. You're not afraid to try new things. You've self-published a book or article. You want to write more than one thing.
There are so many different types of writers out there. Some people can write an entire novel in just a few days, while others take years to finish a single work. Some write only when they feel like it, while others find daily writing a necessity for their mental health. Some write for themselves, some aim for perfection, but everyone knows what it's like to put their all into something and not receive feedback from anyone except maybe a bunch of blue pencil marks on a page.
The best way to get better at anything is by doing it. So if you want to be a great writer, start writing! Even if it's for yourself - write a diary, tell stories, whatever works for you - then eventually you'll have something to show for your efforts and that means you're on your way to becoming a better writer.
