1) Keep your first draft simple. Don’t worry about how you say something. Just say it. If you can come up with a special phrase or special way of expressing something the first time around, that’s good. However, be sure that structure, form, organization, and the logical expression of your ideas are under control first.
2) Expand your writing beyond that which is ordinary and usual. If you have a hard time finding less ordinary and less usual words or phrases to use, refer to a thesaurus. Roget’s International Thesaurus – Harper Collins
3) Use creative techniques such as expressing yourself using metaphor or reification: Metaphor - Reification .
4) After you’ve finished the first draft, proofread and edit your writing.
5) After you’ve proofread and edited your writing, decide which words and phrases you want to change in order to be creative and add more flair and style to your writing. Proofread and edit until you are confident and feel satisfied that your writing is just as should be.
6) Read. Observe the manner in which others express their ideas. You will produce what you take in, but if you do not take anything in, you will not produce anything.
7) Don’t pay attention to ridiculous advice such as, “Learn the rules of grammar and then break them”.
8) Disregard non-sense advice such as, “Don’t begin a sentence with and, but, or, and because”. Use language the way you want to use it, not the way every pedant wants you to use it just because they think it’s “better that way”.
9) Do not refer to non-sense books such as The Elements of Style. Your writing should have no elements of style other than the elements of style you choose to for it. Fifty Years of Stupid Grammar Advice
10) If you’re unsure of something, try looking it up in the American Heritage Guide to Contemporary Usage and Style.
