Want to know what it is?
Find 3 pieces of writing that you love. For each piece, list 5 qualities that make it stand out to you. Then, brainstorm 5 ways to adapt those qualities to your own writing style.
You’ll end up with 15 potential ways to improve your craft.
This week, we also had 15 marks of exceptional writing to incorporate into your writing practice.

On Tuesday, I dissected 3 Reasons Why Good Ideas Are a Real Threat to Good Writing.
