Tips To Master The Art Of Writing

  1. 1. Tips To Master The Art Of Writing Writing isn’t hard, but writing well is a different story altogether. Just because you can communicate your thoughts and ideas by putting a few sentences together, or you know the difference between then and then, your and you’re, there and there, in no way means that you can write something that is good. It’s not easy writing something that has the power to persuade and engage the reader. It’s not easy, sure --- but it doesn’t have to be difficult either. Learning how to write my essay is similar to learning how to cook --- there are different steps involved that can be learnt and perfected by simply --- practicing. Start by acquiring mini-skills. Remember, taking baby steps is the key. Read like your life depends on it It is a known fact that good readers make better writers. Don’t just read blogs or articles, expand your horizons discover different material. By paying attention to different details like the sentence structure, vocabulary and writing style will help you find your voice and develop your writing skills. The more you read, the more you will understand what to add in your writing and what mistakes to avoid.
  2. 2. Practice writing good sentences Forget about writing long sentences trying to reach the word count. Instead, practice making your sentences short and focus on the message. Writing long paragraphs will bore the reader and increase the chance of error. Experiment with new words and styles, adopt a more conversational tone. And remember to ALWAYS use smooth transitions so the reader can slide from one sentence to the other or one paragraph to the next. Make outlines your friend Before jumping straight to writing and then staring at the blank screen, not knowing where to start from, make an outline. Planning what you want to write about and making an outline will take you really far in life. It doesn’t have to be complex simply mention each paragraph will contain and where it will be placed --- that’s more than enough. Write for your reader Your work won’t amount for much if the reader doesn’t enjoy it. Always keep your reader in mind whenever you are writing anything. The reader is the judge and you must grab their attention right away. Leave the reader wanting to know more, a trick to do so is by asking a question in your introductory paragraph and answer it in the latter paragraphs. Keep editing Remember, that nobody gets it right the first time --- the first draft is always the least satisfactory. Don’t get discouraged and keep refining your work until it is flawless. Many writers give up after the first draft --- but you MUST keep going and continue writing even if it doesn’t go as plan be flexible and take your story where it is naturally going.
