The positivity blog lists seven tips from Stephen King for becoming a better writer:

  1. Get to the point, goes hand in hand with:
  2. Cut down your text (MD: "Goed schrijven is schrappen", lit. Good writing means scrapping)
  3. Write a draft. Then let it rest (MD: works wonders for code too!)
  4. Be relatable and honest
  5. Don't care too much what others may think (MD: though listen to your editor!)
  6. Read a lot
  7. Write a lot (MD: writing more gives you a better style, and makes you more proficient)

    I can relate to these points a lot. Though I don't have enough time to read, and writing a draft to leave it for a couple of months is not an option anymore.
