How can I become a good book writer

How can I become a good book writer?

In all honesty I’m not going to go into the debate of “Good writers” or “Bad writers” because it can go on for days, and quite honestly a lot of those debates simply break down to “It doesn’t work when I try it”, but I will give two pieces of advice I received that really changed my writing.
Finally a piece of personal advice:
A writer’s job isn’t to be grammatically correct, follow an outline, copy or avoid tropes, etc.
A writer’s job is to illustrate for readers the amazing world/journey going on in their head, and let them enjoy it as much as you do.
If to do that you have to break some grammatical rules, DO IT!
If it means you have to use a system other than classic “Chapters” DO IT!
If it means you have to write your words in the shape of a fish DO IT!
As long as it is something that enhances the story you’re writing and doesn’t distract from it, DO IT!
Hope that helps! Best of luck!

Read a lot.
Read widely, not just in a single genre…but also read deeply in the genre or genres where you intend to write, so that you know the field.
Write a lot.
Write even if you aren’t “in the mood”.
Experiment and figure out a process through which you can write on a regular basis, whether or not you feel inspired.
For example, are you more up for writing in the morning or at night? In silence, or with music playing? What kind of music? How much advance planning should you do, if any? The point is to find out what works for YOU, not the “right” way to write (if there is such a thing).
A day or two or three after you’ve written, go back and read it critically.
What strikes you as good? What strikes you as trying too hard? Did you shy away from writing something “difficult” (whether that means technically tricky or emotionally demanding or whatever)? What did you leave out? What was self-indulgent? What might need changing in order for readers to understand it or be more engaged?
When you’ve gone through this kind of review process on a number of pieces of your writing, pick one and rewrite it in light of your analysis.
Typically, this will be less of a gushing outflow and more of a calculated program.
Rewriting definitely has a creative component, but it’s more mindful of constructing something that will connect well with a reader, rather than just letting words spill out.
But rewriting is a vital part of writing, and a crucial skill to develop.
Reading books about writing can be useful, but more as baths to soak in rather than rules to follow.
Immerse yourself in the book, absorb what seems useful, then let the rest go down the drain.
Since I’m an SFF writer, my favorite writing books are “On Writing” by Stephen King, “Wonderbook” by Jeff Vandermeer, and “Steering the Craft” by Ursula K.
LeGuin.
Many other worthy writing books are out there…but since you’re reading a lot, and on diverse subjects, you’ll find such books on your own.
Good luck!

Keep writing and don’t let yourself get discouraged.
Read good writers and get used to seeing what good writing is all about.
There are all kinds of good writers.
They include Steven King and Louis L’Amour.
Read and pay attention to how their sentences work.
Above all, keep writing and finish what you write.
Writing is more a craft than an art.
Develop very thick skin.
You might aspire to ‘greatness,’ but you’ll rejoice when the day comes when you’re considered halfway decent.
That in itself is a long journey.
write, read, finish what you write, read it aloud.
keep writing.

The way you become a good book writer is to become a great book reader.
You should just about spend as much time reading as writing.
It's hard and I don't do it enough

One thing people seldom talk about is this: Writing, the ability to do professional work, is an inborn talent.
It’s no different than having a talent for painting, or playing a musical instrument.
If you don’t have that talent it’s really tough to compete with those who do.
It is possible for someone without talent to do a credible job.
But just as it would be impossible for me – even with the world’s best training – to become an accomplished singer or oil painter, talent is the key ingredient and it can’t be taught.
