Hone your craft by writing magazine articles. Here are 7 options.

Magazines on a rackLet’s admit it, writing a book is hard work and takes time. It’s not something you can do in a day or two. But you can write the draft of a magazine article in a day, and then spend the next few days revising it.

And one of the best ways to hone your skill as a writer is to write for magazines. (Tweet this.)
