Tips for beginning writers include practicing writing daily, enhancing vocabulary, keeping a journal to write in, reading good writing and experimenting with different writing structures and styles. A writer can build upon his skills by working with another writer who can offer constructive criticism and feedback.
To build on writing skills, a writer should learn the basic rules of sentence structure, spelling, grammar and punctuation. Learning new vocabulary words and incorporating those words into the writing pieces helps build a writer's skill. Writers should avoid using passive voice, vague words and contractions, and learn to improve on writing in active voice and using descriptive phrases and words.
