Tragic + Devine Author Guest Post: 10 Tips To Becoming A Better Writer





 I am so excited to share with you some tips from author Melody Felix-Prieto. She's the author of The Tragic + Devine and today she has 10 tips to share with us about becoming a better writer.




10 Tips for Becoming a Better Writer 

1. Outline! Always outline first! Writer’s block is just an excuse (a thought) someone came up with because they failed to outline. This happened to me when I wrote my book. I got stuck in CH. 15 for months! But once I sat down and wrote out an outline the book practically wrote itself! 

2. Write everyday 

3.Write what you love

4. If you don’t know what to write, write what you know 

5. Read every day. This keeps your mind active.

6. Keep a notebook by your bed, you never know when inspiration might strike. 

7. Read other author’s work.

8. Make sure to know the difference between words that sound the same but spelled differently. Exm: they’ re/their
   
9. Improve your grammar. I use Grammarly when I write, it’s improved my writing so much!

10. Become a people watcher. A lot of the dialogue in my book came from real people. I’ve learned to actively listen to other's conversations (no to be nosy) but to learn how people speak, how they behave

Alexis Minerva has never been the type to cause trouble. With good grades, and a clean school record, she's on the track to move out of Dixon-a small town with even smaller minded people.

Convinced she'll never see Milo again, Alexis goes back to her mundane world counting down the days until graduation. Then one day, Milo shows up in Dixon unexpectedly rocking the small community.
Determined not to follow in her sister's footsteps despite Priscilla's troubled past haunting her every move, Alexis tries her best to avoid Milo, even though he seems to be everywhere she goes. But a chilling phone call from her sister changes everything. Now she must step into Milo's world to find her sister-a fast-paced world filled with less-than-holy activities and late-night wild parties.
