instagram, for me, is one of those social media platforms where i don't want to read, but i want to be captivated by visual masterpieces. that was a bit dramatic, but you get my point. i like to see pictures on instagram. even if the pictures have a few words, i feel like i'm not reading when the picture is surrounded by color or some other graphic distraction.
storytelling is my favorite aspect of writing because i like telling stories. i like providing content for my readers to educate or entertain. i believe words have power. interestingly enough, a picture is worth 1000 words so i do respect the photography culture.
i'm intrigued when people share their stories in creative ways. that's why i enjoy instagram; it's a home for visual storytellers. that being said, i use every social media for business and since i am in the "writing" business, i follow instragram accounts that help me #LookBetterInWriting. (sorry, i had to.)
anyway, i believe sharing is caring, therefore, i want to share 7 writing-inspired instragram accounts that i truly believe will help improve anyone's (american standard english) writing skills.
learning new words (and practicing how to use them in context is a sure-fire to improve your vocabulary--which in turn will improve your writing skills. new words mean new ways to entice your readers. plus, a large vocabulary also helps your speaking skills.)
if you own a business, it's necessary to learn the lingo!
because you gotta stay current.
because informal language is just as important as formal language.
