"I used Grammarly to grammar check this post, because I may think my writing is perfect, but I'm not and neither is my writing!
I'm what I like to call a perplexed writer. I tend to write at will and have a proclivity of not checking properly. That's why it's so important to bring into play the three P's all writer's need, especially me!
Number one is plan. A writer must plan what they are going to write, when they are going to write and why they are going to write. A writer without a solid plan is a writer without solid words. I know, because I'm a writer without a plan. I don't plan scenes, my characters, or my plot. I write nonchalant. I'm a thinker, not a planner, but a writer(a good writer) must have a rock solid plan. What's your plan?
Once you have a plan, then you're ready for step two of the P's: prepare. As a writer if you don't prepare, then you're sunk. You'll go down with the ship. It seems I'm never prepared when I sit down to write words to paper. I write haphazardly. If you want to write you must be prepared. Before you write your first word onto paper prepare for it. Make it mean something.
Lastly a good writer must propagate. To continue to write and write well you have to propagate new ideas all the time. You have to give birth to your "baby". A good novel or essay doesn't happen overnight. You don't give birth in a day, it takes time. Go forth and propagate new words, new scenes, new characters. Bring them to life....
