R & D
No work is considered to be good and complete without proper research and development. Research is the first step that you should take in order to have your own writing style. The basic rule is, if you want to develop good and interesting content, you need to have good knowledge of the subject. The complete knowledge of the subject will enable you to write your thoughts in a better way. Half knowledge is dangerous. A good writing is judged by its presentation and its content. If the presentation is good, but there is some problem with the facts, then the whole article is rejected. Proper R&D will allow you not only to have a very good presentation but also be informative. An ideal article should be interesting and informative. This is the first step towards your goal of getting to know your writing style.
Second to R&D comes presentation. Presentation plays a very pivotal role in determining the fate of your article. Most readers judge any article by its presentation. If the presentation is not attractive, it might not be accepted by the readers. You have to be extra careful in the way you design the overall look of the article. Only when your article catches the attention of the reader, will its real worth be weighed. To have a better presentation or to learn how to design the overall look of the article, follow some simple but very effective steps.
• Write in paragraphs
While writing an article, make sure you write in short paragraphs. If you cluster all the information into one paragraph, your article will appear lengthy and boring. This leads to loss of readers. Write in short paragraphs, so that it doesn’t appear lengthy and boring. Distribute the information properly in all the paragraphs. This leads to developing an interesting article. The other advantage of writing in short paragraphs is that it makes your article very crisp. Short paragraphs are well received by readers.
Highlighting of important words or sentences will enable the reader to get an idea of what to expect in the article. Highlighting of important words and sentences also acts like footnotes which help them to get straight to the point or to the word or sentence they were looking for.
• Bold & Italics
This actually comes under Highlighting of the important words and sentences. The use of bold and italics will add more beauty to your article. The subheadings in the article can be made more attractive by using bold and italics.
Once your article passes the test of presentation, there comes another important and decisive hurdle; how informative your article is? Good presentation and developing a rich, informative content are possible only through a serious research. Once you have information, it becomes very important, how you pass on the information to your readers. The way in which you present your article with all the relevant information will help you in developing your own freelancing writing style. This unique feat can be achieved only when the above mentioned steps are honestly and carefully taken.
Simple & Clear
The best way to have a unique and a different writing style is to write in a very simple way. Use of flowery words always doesn’t mean good writing. Excessive use of flowery words usually doesn’t go well with readers. Make sure that your content is in simple words.
A clear thought process is also a must for every writer. Without the free flow of thoughts, no creative work can be done properly. As a writer it becomes very important for you to think clearly. Only then can the information and your knowledge can be passed on and shared with many. Having a clear thought process will reflect in your writing. If you’re not clear in your thoughts about any particular subject, it will reflect in your writing. The article will not be clear to the reader and hence will not be accepted.
Always ensure that before writing, proper R&D is a must. A rough column will come in handy and help you to draft a sample article. These steps will not only help you in understanding but also developing and polishing your freelancing personality type.
