Blog review: The Write Practice

You have to write millions of words no one is ever going to see before you can write the ones that will change someone’s life.
                             ~ Joe Bunting, The Write Practice

     If there was ever a reason to give six stars to a blog, I would give it to Joe Bunting's The Write Practice. His vision to help aspiring writers become the best they can be has become a thriving community that I credit a great deal of my knowledge and success to.

     The Write Practice is more than a blog – it is a community where writers come to learn from and teach each other, practicing together to enhance their own writing while connecting with others along the way.
    Writers from all over the world, in every age group, ethnic background, status, and experience level all become one group of people brought together by their passion for words. The supportive, encouraging environment of the Write Practice is the perfect place to grow in your writing career, no matter what subject or style your writing is.

    What sets The Write Practice apart from every other writing blog is that it does not merely tell you what you should do – it encourages you to act upon it. At the end of every post the writers ask you to take fifteen minutes to act upon it – write content based on the article, and share it in the comment section below the post.

    It is incredible to see dozens and dozens of writers sharing their own unique view of the prompt, and to watch the community gather around each member, giving tips and suggestions based on their own experience, and encourage each other. When you become a part of the write practice, it is like being accepted into one gigantic, worldwide writing family.

    Besides helping writers grow with these prompts, the Write Practice also invites readers to send in their own guest posts, and members of the editorial team are willing to help you cultivate your piece and post it on the site. I have done this myself twice (with my second article set to appear on June 9), and I continue to be amazed by their willingness to help the guest writer grow and learn while still promoting themselves and their work via their post.

    There is also an advanced community called Becoming Writer, which I have not had the opportunity to join, but will recommend based on what I have heard. It is an extension of The Write Practice, and was created by Joe Bunting as an exclusive community of those who are serious about their writing. You can find out more about it on their website.

The Write Practice has taught me so much of what I know about writing, and it is where I first gained the confidence to show my writings to others. Joe Bunting and all of those who help make this blog possible are experts in their field, and are dedicated to helping writers like you and me.
    They have helped and are continually helping me with my writing, and I recommend that you subscribe to their blog. I promise you won't regret it.
