Outstanding pieces of advice for writers

So I actually downloaded this app assuming it was just another app to jot down my thoughts and ideas. But reading through, I’ve come to find it’s full of great pieces of advice and exercises to improve your writing. I’ve tried the very first exercise on the list and I realized this actually works if you apply yourself to it!!
