Self-Expression in Creative Writing | Melissa Donovan, Creative Writing | Writing Forward

Donovan writes:
If we’re writing strictly for personal reasons, it doesn’t matter whether we write clearly or in a way that interests other people, but if we want to write professionally, to connect with an audience, our personal expressions must be clear and they must go beyond ourselves; they must resonate with readers.
She then provides some tips to help creative writers accomplish that essential goal, covering these topics:
  • Grammar and vocabulary matter
  • Honesty is the best policy
  • Connect with readers
  • Know your purpose.
