“The desire to write well cannot be fulfilled without hard work.
I suppose it all depends on what you want to write.
If it’s a story (and I have read a lot of Dean Koontz books), there is a lot of work involved in research, planning, plot, characters, and a few surprises to keep the reader interested.
Writing for a blog post isn’t necessarily hard work, but it requires thought and direction.
What comes easily to some is difficult for others, but the desire is the same: to write well.
I try to, I check my spelling and grammar to hopefully keep my readers interested as nothing puts me off more than a typo or bad editing. I read one book and the main character changed halfway through. I didn’t bother finishing it or buying anything else by that author. However, mistakes can slip through and sometimes when I’m revisiting a post, I see it and amend it immediately.
