Keep Learning — Maybe you think you already know everything about writing — and after years of schooling where writing, spelling and grammar are stressed it’s easy to understand why you think so — but as with any profession there are always new things to learn. Perhaps, you want to broaden your editing skills so that you can add copy editing to your repetoire or maybe you need to learn some basic graphic skills so you can better discuss art for your stories. Always learning, always striving to know more and do more are hallmarks of a good writer and dedicated professional.
Exercise: Think about a skill that you could use a boost in. Perhaps it’s populating your won blog or dealing with clients, whatever it is set a goal and start learning how you can be more successful.
