Tips for young writers

My passion for writing was an off shoot of my dream to become popular as a writer and see my name printed in the pages of leading magazines or newspapers. Thus I had built a strong reason to become what I liked to be ie., to be the best I can as a writer. I worked on my English which was a bit funny initially but later picked up momentum with continuous efforts to raise the bar. I practiced grammar and I found those idioms and phrases providing all the energy I needed to decorate my writing and I loved it. During my shopping sprees more than anything else it was the bookshops which attracted me always. I had never left my mind myself wandering free whenever I had the time to think, of those glorious world of words !

Some of my tips for Young writers
