What else do writers have to do? They have to work to get better at writing, and they have to understand that writing classes do not solve their problem.
I’d like to clue you in on something. I know it’s disappointing, and most people probably don’t want to hear it. But the truth is that writing classes don’t work. Here’s why.
1. Everyone’s writing ability is different.
2. Everyone has a different purpose in writing.
3. Everyone makes different mistakes in writing.
4. Everyone’s understanding of the English language is different.
5. Writing often needs revisions, not corrections, and because of this, everyone needs to improve their writing skills in different ways.
