Tip: Grab yourself a listener...

Would you like to know how to improve your writing—and your chances of getting good grades? Well, you can. All you have to do is make a list of the people you talk to, work with, socialize with, study with—then ask yourself the following question: which one of these people do I trust to look at my writing and give me an honest opinion of what’s wrong or missing. Why should you do that? Why ask someone else to help after you’ve already written your first draft? We look at our writing through rose-colored glasses, remember? And we need the critical eye of someone who can be objective. That’s your “listener,” someone who can play the role of critic before your real reader does.

You know that a family member can’t be your listener, right? Why? They want you to feel good about anything you write, of course, so they’re going to tell you what you want to hear. Even if your writing gets first place in a contest called "The World’s Worst Writing," your family is still going to say, “Great job, kid!” So, forget family. That leaves someone you can trust to give you an honest opinion, even if the opinion isn't what you want to hear. Don't despair. You do NOT have to do what your listener suggests. That's your decision and your decision alone. After all, whose name is ultimately going to appear at the top of your writing? Your listener? Or yours? Right, yours. So give your listener a chance, then do what you think is right. You always want to keep your audience in mind when you write, but ultimately you are writing to please one person and one person only...you.
