Looking for the best writing tips? Look no further. Here are the 22 best creative writing tips of all time.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Proofread everything at least three times before submitting..

Allow yourself to write poorly, to write a weak, uninteresting story or a boring, grammatically incorrect poem.
