So, I've set this to be my goal. I will become an amazing writer through hard work and determination. And by working on something called deliberate practice.
Deliberate practice must have 4 things to qualify:
- You must be motivated to attend to the task and exert effort to improve your performance.
- The design of the task should take into account your pre-existing knowledge so that the task may be correctly understood after a period of instruction.
- You should receive immediate, informative feedback and knowledge of the results of your performance.
- You should repeatedly perform the same or similar tasks.
This is what I am trying to achieve through this blog. I am engaging in repeated and deliberate practice in my writing skills, and I need you, dear reader, to help me do it. I would like to entreat each and every one of you to please review each entry I place on this blog as cruelly and specifically as you can. I welcome criticism, for it will lead me to improvement and growth.
And I'll thank you for every word.
I'm going to be writing 1 short story every week and posting it on here for your pleasure. I hope you like them, and that you can help me reach my goal of becoming a better writer.
