But do be open to constructive criticism, that is one way we writers improve our craft. And remember, no one starts out the perfect from the start, it does take time to become good at writing, but it is time worth spent.

Also, in order to continue to improve upon your talents, read. But don't just read your genre, read some of everything, if possible. Reading non-fiction has given me ideas for my fiction novels.

I would tell aspiring writers to perhaps have a note book beside them when they read. Use the note book to jot down verbs or phrases that you may want to use yourself. This has helped me greatly.(less)
