Can you imagine that moment when you are reading and realize the content has unneeded words?
Get rid of terms such as that, very, just, really, definitely, probably and many others if the sentence makes a meaning without them.
- Evoke emotion
Sentences with emotions attract many readers. What is the general mood of your audience? What problems are they trying to solve?
It might be unemployment, trying to cope with death, divorce, etc. Slot in that emotion in your sentence.
- Write conversationally
When writing, you are talking to your readers. Put your focus on your audience and address them as if you were doing it face to face.
- Most women get confused when they start adding weight.
- Have you ever felt confused when you started adding weight?
Example 1 sounds too general. Example 2 sounds specific because it addresses you. Readers love conversational tone and are likely to comment to that blog.
- Paint a picture
How can you create an image in your sentence? Giving the reader a clear picture of your mind depends on your words.
It is possible to do that through entertaining your audience. Combine abstract and concrete images. Abstract is that which you can imagine/image in your mind. Concrete is something you can see.
Do you attach images in your write-up?
You can also create abstract and concrete language.
The best way to combine abstract with concrete language in an article is through connecting your facts with data.
“Alice is a talented author but she hates one thing about herself. Whenever she sits down to write, she finds herself staring at the screen or browsing through the social media.”
According to an American journal released on 7th July 2011, 40% of authors have talent in writing but aren’t motivated to do it. The Journal further states that most writers can’t accomplish their goals because they are lazy.
- Add facts in your sentences
Currently, there is too much information in the internet. If you say a fact, you need to prove it. Otherwise your readers might underrate you.
Remember the online world is full of annoying sales pitch and advertisements. How can your audience know that you are different from them?
You can do this by showing your readers what you say. Don’t mention a statement without proof. That’s all!
Hidden treasures have to be searched. Likewise writing well needs practice.
The more you write, the more you learn. Think about a baby boy learning how to walk. At first, he tries and falls down.
Next he moves two steps and stands. He then runs without falling. Who knows, later he might be a famous athlete.
The same applies to writing. It might seem daunting at first. Don’t give up. Write, write, and write.
