Write, write, write….. What are the tips to write well in general? I have discussed a few points which I feel are essential to write a good article or a blog post or an essay for that matter. This is general advice.
Cultivating the habit of writing from a young age
Writing one’s own articles from a young age also contributes to learning a lot. Cultivating the habit of writing not only increases one’s knowledge but also helps in providing pieces of advice to others. Once a person gains mastery in something not only is he/she able to help himself/ herself but also able to help others.
Practice writing work on a daily basis-
Like the saying goes practice makes a person perfect. Hence a person must practice writing daily. Practicing the right format, practicing the right way of using sentences and words, practicing the right manner of using punctuations. All these matters a lot in an article.
Do not loose touch
You need to stay constantly updated in order to learn more. Staying constantly updated means not to loose touch in writing. You need to reserve sometime if not daily atleast twice a week or once a week in order not to loose focus.
Learning the basics of Grammar in detail-
In order to succeed and write fluently, the basics of grammar need to be brushed up as it is one of the key to one among the doors to successful writing-adverbs, adjectives, nouns, pronouns,etc.
Reading new books,newspaper, etc. every day-
Constantly getting updated by reading new books. Not only are there books to help a person stay updated but there are also books that help a person in gaining knowledge, ideas and new perspectives. It also helps one to improve his/her vocabulary which is indeed an added advantage.
Reading the newspaper on a daily basis not only helps a person learn about the current issues but also helps a person to write better. Newspapers have quality articles that helping in gaining an idea about a particular topic in detail.
Reading at least five new words from the dictionary every day-
Improving a person’s vocabulary helps in writing in different styles and understanding topics in a better manner. Try reading at least five new words every day thoroughly so as to increase knowledge in the long run. Using different words also helps in mixing and matching up
It is the quality that matters first-
The article written should focus more about the topic and not just beat around the bush. You can make an analysis in order to bring out either the facts or figures based on the context. In short your article should have value to the reader. The more informative it is the better.
Write in sequence and with a direction
The order or sequence needs to be followed. A proper sequence or format should be adopted based on the requirements that is to whom you are writing for. Hence it helps in maintaining continuity and meaningful sentences.
Writing without an aim leads to nowhere. Just like how a road map is followed to reach a particular destination, so should a proper direction be followed to write an article in a proper manner.
Taking down important points on the go-
Sometimes important points strike a person’s mind suddenly while eating, traveling, sleeping, etc. You need to note down points either in your tablet or mobile while you are on the go and in a notebook while you are at home.
Select a beautiful/clean background for writing-
Sitting in a clean and neat bedroom or sitting in a beautiful park or sitting in an awesome library boosts the enthusiasm and motivation to write in a better manner. Hence the place where a person is sitting to write should not only be beautiful but it should also be neat and clean. Writing in a place that is dirty or messy lowers the self-confidence, motivation, and interest to continue writing.
