Well, I don't know if I'm qualified to give these but since I want to join in Mam Carolyn's #ceesadvicechallenge and share some advice that I follow, so here it is:
(This is long )
1. This one is old but gold. Write for yourself. You should be your own number one fan. You'll never be satisfied with just others praises, until you make yourself happy with your own work. Only then, you'll not be bothered by the number of likes or reposts in your posts. Those will be just bonus in writing. Seek validation from yourself first.
2. Here in mirakee, I have a set of writers whom I look up to. I try to get their attention by improving my write ups (but of course without forgetting #1 and without tagging them). A repost from them is as big as POD itself for me. They don't know who they are so those are genuine reposts.
3. I learn faster when I am corrected. I actually have trusted grammar critics here. They message me whenever there is something wrong about my posts. I also have some of my posts checked by them. (hi @ashik_k_a ) Would you believe, that before (around first 300 posts), I had at least 2-3 mistakes in every post. (I hope I have flawless posts now .)
4. Don't sprinkle your work with nosebleeding words. I actually promote some heavy words be mixed with simple ones but just don't do it in every line, every sentence or every phrase. 'Cause seriously, who wants to read with dictionary beside always. There is also this way of writing where you introduce the meaning of the unusual word within its sentence. And I learned a lot of difficult words this way, while reading good novels and poems. Try that style if you want to enrich the vocabulary of your readers.
5. Show don't tell. Tell: She is sad. ❌ Show: Warm water trickled down her cheeks, seeking refuge in the edge of her lips.✔️ Incorporate the sense of taste, smell, hear and touch too.
6. Make sure to write the idea as soon as it strike you. Or say goodbye from it. Write even words or phrase that you think are worth playing in your next write up.
7. Catch the reader's attention in the first line. Don't wait for 2nd or 3rd line. Not everyone is as patient as you. However, make sure you sustain the beauty of your work all throughout.
8. Read. Read. Read. (I'm trying too)
9. Don't force yourself to write (or even read.) Words call you when they need you and vice versa.
10. Write even if it's lame.
11. Quit writing if you are just planning to plagiarize others work. Writing is not for you. Seriously, how can someone take credits from others ideas
12. Ask permission first before tagging anyone.
13. There is no wrong in copying someone's writing style ( I said style not the words). Everyone learns from their favorite writers. But don't be contented of being just their shadow forever. Create a writing style that screams you
14. Fewer words, better. (for me)
15. Don't create an army of lazy readers. Don't spoonfeed them everything. Let your words make them think.
16. Let's start giving credits to owners of background pictures we use. They are also artists, like us, that deserve credit.
17. Don't follow this list or anyone's list if it doesn't suit you. We have our own ways to do things and it's not bad.
So hope this could help
(I'll update this post whenever I think of new ones to add)
