10 Ways To Improve Your Writing Use these writing exercises to help free your mind, get creative and move your work from good to great

In today’s fast-paced and increasingly visual media world, content creators place a lot of focus on high quality images and video content. Especially as social media sites elevate rich media, and viral videos seem to get the most likes, clicks and views, it makes sense to produce stunning visuals and beautiful images.

But one key tool that often gets lost in the shuffle is the ability to write well. And not just the ability to write properly, but write effectively, write passionately, and write with the purpose of storytelling — the type of writing that moves your audience and keeps them wanting more.

If you’re looking for ways to spruce up your written content on your blog, website or other platforms, check out these 10 tips and creativity exercises that will bring your writing to that next level.

1. Open-Ended Writing

Sometimes, writing without a topic or without purpose can be key to improving your writing. When you don’t have a need for structure, organization or clarity, writing about anything and everything can free your mind and really get the creative juices flowing. What did you do this weekend? What did you wear? Why did you attend an event or eat that food item for lunch? Free-form and unstructured writing can be especially helpful when experiencing “writer’s block” and should be a habit for any writer.
