Guest blogger Ray K. Alan says to hang out with other writers.
The best tip I can provide, besides write everyday about anything, is to join a writers’ club where you can obtain critical constructive criticism. Whether you meet every week or month or collaborate online, it’s important for your personal growth to have feedback. It helps stretch your writing skills and forces you to write so you don't come in empty handed to the next meeting. Coffee and donuts are optional but highly recommended.
