Having started work in an office full time now, and having a precious 3 – 4 hours at home (most of the time I don’t even have that time) before sleeping everyday, I’ve noticed that I have started to write less. A lot of my time after hours are spent working on some of my clients’ sites or just plain lazing in front of the TV, in refusal to look at a computer screen.
Then I noticed that the lesser I write, the tougher it is for me to get started! As a matter of fact, I didn’t want to get started on this post, until I was inspired by Copyblogger’s 10 Steps to Becoming a Better Writer. Well, its not a long inspirational post that reasons with logic, but it just tells me one thing.
To become a better writer, write, and write more. Even when you don’t feel like it.

Hey Kian Ann, you didnt clear spam? You’re working now in a new job?
Heh, yeah I was doing some other work and the spam took over for a while – its settled now, and yep, I’m working on my job, developing a portal.
How are you getting on?
I second your idea of writing more to become a better writer. It just helps in the fluency of your thoughts. 🙂
Anyway, having 3-4 hours to rest before you sleep is considered quite good already. 🙂
The Best & Fastest way to learn copywritting is to simply copy the best copywritter’s copy & modify it according to our context. Isn’t that true?
Copying great sales letters is a good way to learn the rhythm and flow of great copy.
To get good, there are some great books on copywriting. You can also find copywriting courses and coaching programs that will really speed up the learning process.
hi Kian Ann,
I love writing copy, doesn’t know why, but you are right “write… write… write” Sometime my ideals just come by reading newsletter from Gary Halbert… I even write word by word out with my pen from his sales copy… that’s what he taught… neurological imprint…
