I have to stop laughing. For a minute there I was picturing it like a scene out of Disney's original Fantasia with the walking broomsticks escorted by walking keyboards and fully-plucked, headless chickens flying overhead. Not a funny scene unless drawn by Disney.
Back to today's tip: how to be a better writer? Well this isn't a magic chicken and there's no secret way to bring your keyboard to life by itself but there are 10 steps you can follow that will improve your writing. Guaranteed. Disclaimer: I didn't author this list. I ganked it from CopyBlogger's Brian Clark, and then wordsmithed a couple of places to make it visually-formatted more smoothly. In fact, it is now shaped much like the lop-sided bell curve arc of a well-plotted storyline with the peak at the 80-90% mark ^_^
- Write more.

- Write when you don’t want to.
- Write when you do want to.
