Write Better Articles

If you’ve been writing articles for any length of time, I would be willing to bet that you, at times, struggle how to write better articles. Am I right? I think it’s good that you are questioning your article writing in the sense that you are trying to get better. I’ve seen many times where people get into a lull and find themselves wondering if they’re writing interesting enough articles. To that, I would say to first concentrate on getting your information correct. That’s the most important aspect of writing articles. What good is any article if the information cannot be relied upon?

Making your content interesting is really a matter of how you present your topic. Granted, there are some topics that just aren’t that interesting. However, I feel that any subject can be made interesting if enough research is done and the article contains a proper presentation of the material. For example, suppose you are writing about jogging for health reasons. I know that some folks feel that jogging is a mundane, monotonous activity that can bore a person to tears, not to mention the physical effort involved. What about presenting the reasons for jogging in the form of a goal? Most people respond well to striving for goals, as long as the goal is attainable and is meaningful.

You covered the reasons for jogging, and even suggested creating goals. But how can you describe jogging as a fun and enjoyable experience? It your make jogging sound fun and enjoyable by using descriptive words in your text, you will definitely peak the interest of your reader and may even decidedly change their attitude about jogging. Using words such as exhilarating, heart pounding, overall better health, lose weight, sexier looks, for example, are words associated with action and higher self-esteem. For most, these words will entice your reader to continue reading and finish with a good feeling about your writing. After all, this is what your goal is, right?

If it’s the writing process itself that has you frustrated and confused, I will give you a few steps to follow that should help. Keep in mind that the steps that follow are not necessarily intended to be followed in exact order. This is because writing is a recursive process. That is, you can feel free to jump back and forth between the stages of the process. There is no hard and fast rule that you need to follow, but covering all of the stages will automatically make you write better articles.

Here are the stages of the writing process:

1. Free writing – (aka brainstorming, pre-writing) just grab your pen and paper, and start writing. Do NOT worry about spelling, punctuation, grammar, or the number of words. Just write for writing’s sake. The object is to let your ideas flow and get them on paper.

2. Determine your topic – whether your topic is already known or you still have to research keywords for your topic. Here, you determine what you’re going to start writing about. This could change a little, so don’t get too hung-up here.

3. Put all of your ideas together into a rough draft, with some semblance of order. Also, make sure you are proving your topic statement. Be interesting to your readers!

4. Edit your article for proper grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. Also, pay attention to sentence structure so your words and ideas come across exactly how you intend.

5. Finally, make all corrections necessary and double check your entire article so everything looks and feels right. Is your topic sentence answered and proven? If so, then you’re ready to publish your masterpiece to the Internet! Well done!

As a final word about the writing process, if you learn the stages of the process and adhere to each one, you will be well on your way to learning how to write better articles. Remember though, you are not required to follow the steps in any order. Just be sure to cover all of them. Here’s to your successful article writing!

You may already know that I am affiliated with a great community of Internet marketers, some of who are very experienced and some who are just beginning. One of the most popular topics within the community is article writing and learning how to write better articles. I think you owe it to yourself to find out more, don’t you?
