Better Writing – 7 Tips from Stephen King’s “On Writing”

Good Writing Makes Better BloggersBloggers are basically writers. Unless you came from heaven with all the skill sets pre-loaded, you need to constantly fine tune your writing skills to make it efficient and effective.

Here is an article which summarizes Effective writing tips from Stephen King’s book – “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft”.

I shared it on twitter first, got some awesome responses (here and here), so I instantly know, I have to blog this!

The first tip coincided with an article I wrote sometime back:

Get to the point.

Don’t waste your reader’s time with too much back-story, long intros or longer anecdotes about your life. Reduce the noise. Reduce the babbling. In On Writing King gets to his points quickly. Get to your point quickly too before your reader loses patience and moves on.

Read the rest of the tips on the Positivity Blog. Get inspired!

Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!


Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.

    Its a article to read – but keep one thing in mind. Writing for print and writing for Web is very different.

    • True, but if you draw a Venn Diagram for Book Writing and Web Writing, there will be some common portion 🙂

      I do read the Writing for Web series now, its good, hope you remember we talked over twitter on that one day 😉
