What's the best advice or information you've ever received about writing?
Writing is very 3 dimensional. There are so many different aspects to writing and you can do so much with books, articles, and many other different pieces of writing. A lot of people try to just get the writing done and move on, but when you start reading in between the lines of these different sources you can find so much more information. Everything just becomes a lot more interesting.
What is the best way to study?
For every person there is a different way to study. If you are a visual learner, then maybe draw out a plan for what you need to learn. Though it can be quite difficult at first, once you find the right way it'll just get easier as you continue to practice these study skills. I, personally love to write things down and my laptop and then write it on a piece of paper. The more I write, the more I'm able to keep the information and actually learn it.
How do I know what I want to write about (when given the freedom to choose)?
One of the most important things about picking a topic is simple. Be passionate about what you want to talk about. If you don't have an interest in the topic that you are discussing, then it will reflect through you're writing. When you are connected with the topic, you are able to connect a better with your audience and it's going to feel very organic.
