With red pen in hand, I begin to read the story - slowly. I'll made edits, changes, etc. Usually that gets me back to where I have an idea of where the story should go next.(less)

Note the way others writers write - their tone, their pacing, etc. What are they doing that you don't like? Second, write every chance you get. Descriptions, dialogue, anything that will help to sharpen your skills. When I first started writing I was working as a temp in the office of a bank branch manager. When things got slow, I would watch the customers as they went about their business and make up stories about each one. It was a fun and easy way create backstories.(less)
