Day 374: Crafting Your Gift: How to Build Exceptional Writing Skills Through Diligence

The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.

-Emile Zola

While innate talent is nice, it’s only through relentless effort that you will refine your writing gift into a mighty skill that will conquer your world.

This work ethic is echoed in Proverbs 14:23.

“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”

You must actively nurture whatever writing talent God blessed you with so you can hone it into the mighty skill that will mezmerize your readers so they can transform their lives through your words.

  1. Invest in Hard Work

Hard work is your faithful companion as you hone your gift. It’s the nourishment your talent needs to blossom into a skillset.

  1. Constantly Refine Your Skills

You will never master the craft of writing. Skills development is not a one-time thing. It’s an ongoing, daily process of striving to become better.

  1. Don’t Neglect Your Passion

Don’t allow the thing you love – writing – to become a chore you hate. Schedule writing play time and give yourself opportunities to explore new things and see where they lead.

Apply Zola’s wisdom as you diligently hone your craft and your unique voice so your book will transform your life and the life of your reader.
