As 2014 comes to a close, take this time to do your own “year in review.” Take out something you wrote earlier this year and give it a good read with a fresh set of eyes. Pay attention to the highs and the lows of the piece and see what needs improvement. Take a look at the sentence structure to make sure that there is variety of both long sentences and short ones. Bump up your vocabulary and keep an eye out for repetition. There are thousands of words in the English language—use them!
