Learn!

Today's tip for developing a writing career is learn or study your craft. So if you instituted either of my last two tips, you've read a craft book. Perhaps you still have questions or you're having trouble knowing the difference between showing and telling then don't overlook a writing class or two.

In our online world taking a writing class is easier than ever. Writer's Digest magazine offers many courses/webinars, most Community Colleges offer writing course as well as the continuing education departments of universities, organizations in your chosen genre and don't forget to check your favorite author's website! Many author's offer online courses for a nominal fee.

With any career there is training involved. Writing is no different. Let me say that again. Writing requires training. No one can sit down and write a publishable manuscript in one setting. Trust me, if you want to succeed, take a writing course!
