“Good writing does not succeed or fail on the strength of its ability to persuade. It succeeds or fails on the strength of its ability to engage you, to make you think, to give you a glimpse into someone else’s head.”Malcolm Gladwell
When you started to write, whether it’s a college paper, blog post, work document, email, social media, and so on. Maybe you always had a question about how to keep writing down. right?
Writing for a while and I organized some tips that really help me more effectively. There are five tips for writing effectively.
Being an avid reader is good for writing.
If you don’t have any inspiration for writing, must read the books, articles, reports, whatever you like just go to read it when no inspiration in your brain.
Books always have the magic power to give you another perspective to look at what situation you struggled with, or maybe stunk in the thoughts you don’t know how to write down the dilemma and undesirable opinions.
The process of reading is like therapy, not only helping you think more deeply (or maybe find out some bugs about your initial assumption) but also can ask more precise questions in the specific topics.
Give yourself some spare time to read, to write, to think, and you will find out the pleasure of this journey by exploring the thoughts you never met, the questions you never ask before, and still having lots of interesting parts wait for you to dig.
Answer the question.
The core of writing is about asking questions and using wording to build the unique perspectives you tried to convey. The excellent ability or skill for writing isn’t the crucial one to write well.
Fundementally, the key to be the better author or writer is keeping writing. But how to keep do that, the inspirations will run out for one day. That was totally right.
Asking the question and tring to answer it, that was howI defined the writing.
Basically, come up with one of the pending questions behind the specific issues or the fields which you’re interesting.
For finding the answer, you needed to do lots of researches on that topic. Pick up every single probably pieces to solve the puzzle, organizng the evidences, the concepts to make your own perspectives.
Don’t trap in Perfectionism.
Nothing is perfect, so the writing.
Don’t let perfectionism become the obstacle for completing the tasks. Research also indicated people who suffered from procrastination issues are associated with people who had perfectionism.
People always expected their image, articles, performances, and so on can be perfect. In fact, the perfection doesn’t exist, your writing will never be perfect.
After publishing your articles, the sounds in your brain started to criticise all the wording you wrote. Always having the better way to write, having the brilliant wording to display. But, the time you had is limited.
Set a deadline for writing.
The best way to defeat the perfectionism is setting the deadline.
That will give yourself the limited time to finish the work, forcing you to take an action right now, no more excuses to procrastinate the things you’ve done.
But, when the time’s up just stop, don’t do it more. Building the confidence on writing is really crucial element for beginning, no matter how words you wrote, keep the habit daily is more important.
Be honest. Be yourself.
If you start writing project, remember the one thing you had to do is being yourself.
Use your tones, wordings, visions, beliefs to convey the things you’re good at or interested. It’s not about you need to look professionally, or how cool you’re. Just being yourself, and that wad hradest part in the writing.
For achieving this goal you need to being honest for yourself, telling readers the thing you know or you don’t. It’s also the way to exploring the different self.
