Get a writer’s group (and a thicker skin)

Ok, this first one has been said a lot, I’m sure, but that’s because it’s essential. However, writer’s groups can definitely take on different forms and serve different purposes. When I first started writing seriously, I found it helpful to be in a group where we also did writing exercises to practice different aspects of craft; now I’m much more interested in exclusively workshopping pieces we’re currently working on.

Take advantage of online offers

Ah yes, the Internet. Where oh where would we be without it? Since my local writer’s group would have been cancelled for months and months without Zoom and co., I love it even more.

Read like a madman/madwoman

Ok, so this is also standard advice: to get better at writing, you need to read more. However, I think this can be more clearly defined.
