Yes, I’m talking about a Medium membership and yes, it can improve your writing 10x
Hey fellow writers!
Are you looking for a cheap and relatively way to improve your writing? This article is just what you need.
Before you dive in, be warned: this only works if you have a passion for writing. You need to actually, genuinely love writing, and not simply do it for the money. If you’re unsure how to identify that, ask yourself this: “If no platform in the world ever gave me money to write, would I still spend time creating new content?”
If the answer is yes, then join the club, my friend. You are a writer not for the sake of raking in the moolah, but because you are bitten by this bug of needing to put your thoughts on paper. Writing is like breathing to you and you fucking love it. Thinking up crazy ideas and making stories in your head gives you a kick. That doesn’t even feel like work.
What’s work is translating those ideas on paper and making them resemble a coherent narrative that can give readers some value. Work is developing a writing habit so you can stick to your goals day after day. You will get there eventually. But first, you need to improve the quality of your writing. Here’s how you can it.

You are what you read.
The content you read on Medium is better than most of the blogs and articles on the internet. If you look at the best posts from top writers, here's what you’ll find in common:
- The posts aren’t spammy or self-promotional.
- Writers address legitimate pain points of the reader and don’t unnecessarily evoke emotions or engage in click-baiting.
- Writers don’t put themselves on a pedestal and pretend they’ve got everything figured out. Most of the essays adopt a compassionate tone and help the reader feel like they can achieve whatever’s being written about.
- They make no lofty claims without backing their essays with thorough scientific research. This is an assurance that most of what you read on the platform is trustworthy.
If you keep reading such high-quality content, you’d most definitely learn to think and write like these amazing writers. I’m speaking from experience. If you compare the kind of content I wrote on Quora in early 2020 to the essays and stories I write now, you’d see a huge change, almost as if it’s a different person writing these stories.
That’s the transformative power of reading quality content.
