Landlords did what they’re entitled to do in America: They raised rents on their apartments as high as the market would bare。

Milner was a key player for the Reds as they finished just a point behind Premier League winners Manchester City and lifted the Champions League last season, with the Yorkshireman coming on as a substitute in the victory over Tottenham in the final in Madrid。

 William Zinsser has sold over 1 million copies of his book On Writing Well: An Informal Guide To Writing Nonfiction。

What does he say? You learn to write by writing。

The only way to learn to write is to force yourself to produce a certain number of words on a regular basis。

And you need to take it seriously if you want to get better。

Andrew Kevin Walker, screenwriter of numerous blockbusters including Seven, says: See it as a hobby and that is what it will remain。

Thats natural。

Yes, sitting down to write can be scary。

  And then, as William Zinsser explains, you can take it to the next level。

If anyone asked me how I learned to write, Id say I learned by reading the men and women who were doing the kind of writing I wanted to do and trying to figure out how they did it。

Anything you write is going to get filtered through your perspective and your vocabulary。

But whats the #1 thing that makes writing seem like it was done by a pro? Tell A Dirty Joke No, not literally。

Andy says thats the sign of someone who knows what theyre doing: When Im reading something, what lets me know if Im in good hands or not is whether theres a sense of structure to it。

 Whether its a screenplay or a PowerPoint presentation, does it have a clear beginning, middle and end? Or is it a rambling mess of ideas?

From Mamets On Directing Film: A good writer gets better only by learning to cut, to remove the ornamental, the descriptive, the narrative, and especially the deeply felt and meaningful。

From On Writing: A Memoir Of The Craft: One of the really bad things you can do to your writing is to dress up the vocabulary, looking for long words because youre maybe a little bit ashamed of your short ones。

This is like dressing up a household pet in evening clothes。
