How am I supposed to know?

>>7316931
Read widely and analyse what you're reading and write and then read and analayse and write some more.
>>
>>7316931
Read a lot and write a lot. No other way.

Will those help with things like grammar and diction?
>>
>>7316971
Yes and yes. It's not a bad idea to actively study grammar though.

>>7316975
Read and write. The only way.

What's the best thing way to go about this? Certain websites?
>>
>>7316970
what do you guys write usually?
I know many people give themselves "1000 words a day" or some rule like that, but about what? You always continue a story? You create many short ones? You write a diary?
>>
>>7316996
Anything you feel like. I do 1000 words of fiction a day. If I'm working on a novel, I'll work on that. If I'm not, I'll work on short stories. But I know journal/diary type stuff is helpful for some people.
>>
>>7316996
I do 6000 words a day but it's just the same three words over and over again.
I am nothing I am nothing I am nothing I am nothing

>>7316931
Read only the finest books there is (more important than reading "a lot").

Write only significant things (more important than writing "a lot").

>>7316931
By writing better.

nah man
that's not for all

i am a stoner myself, and although i've had some weird ideas while high, i can't really work while high
>>
>>7318303

There seems to be a sweet spot for me. If I'm a little high, just one hit from a pipe, the ideas seem to flow out almost effortlessly. If I'm higher than my imagination is going too fast for me to write down and if I get any higher whatever I right is purely automatic, like I don't know what I've written until after I've registered the words on the screen. The automatic stuff is only useful as poetry, it tends to be short choppy and esoteric.
