Many authors have asked, “What's the difference between a 4 and a 5?” There is no room for error for 5-star authors. We need to trust our authors to deliver error-free work. On top of all the previous items, what writing skills can 4-star authors improve on?
This post starts with hallmarks of level 2 articles and covers signs that your writing is at level 3. Removing these issues from your work can raise your rating. Next week, I'll have tips for level 4 writers looking to move to level 5.
In our last post, we mentioned Grammar Girl as a resource for daily tips and tricks to keep your grammar skills current. Good grammar increases your skills, makes your message clearer and can help increase your rating and attract DirectOrders.
We are fortunate enough to have a guest post from Grammar Girl herself! This post is not an endorsement of Textbroker, but something to get you thinking about how you write and how you can improve your clarity and message.
The tools that editors and excellent writers use was mentioned in the discussion of a previous post. I wanted to summarize and give you links (not affiliate links, these go straight to the source) to help you build your own Editor's Toolbox. Purchasing these materials is in no way required to be a good writer or get a good rating, but using them can help your writing skill.
