Saying what you mean in just a few words is never easy. No one knows that better than a writer (or, really anyone who's tried to right a term paper the night before it's due).
So I was super pumped to see Mashable's #MashReads talk yesterday--everyone was giving their writing advice for new and aspiring writers in 140 characters!!
If you want to be a writer- then wrote something everyday- good or bad. The good will come, sometimes it just needs to be primed #MashReads
Use fewer words, and words with fewer syllables. #mashreads
For active writing & to reduce "be" verbs, isolate thoughts to noun&verb (Dogs bark. Boys run.) ; build up from there. #MashReads
Write as though your mother is never going to read a word of it. #mashreads
Finish it. More important than anything else. The rest is details. Finish it. #MashReads

These are the ones I found most inspirational for me as a writer....what would your advice be?

@hikaymm it gets us all sometimes, haha. I'll try reading aloud more often, then!
whoops, meant to write Ralph! Stupid autocorrect
Halfs is the best!! My advice would be to read it out loud to someone. It always helps me!
