Writing Tip 1: Expanding knowledge

A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

This time I’ll write about some tips I’ve found to improve my writing. Almost all of my writing is instinctual after I’ve done most of the research, so I don’t know how to explain that part beyond do it before you think about it. Instead, I’ll focus on things that can be tangibly done.

In this case, I’ve found that expanding your basic knowledge base in anything helps. I’ve been studying science, math, psychedelics, magic, art, history, anarchy, sociology, anime, music, video games, movies, sports, comics, manga. Just about anything I come into contact with has in some way changed my thinking. And writing is just thinking writ to paper.

So tip No. 1: expand your knowledge.
