How well a writer gets thoughts down on paper will determine how much the reader gets out of it.

The audience comes away with an impression about a writer’s ability to communicate effectively.

Writing at your best will get more followers on Twitter and your blog!

There are a variety of techniques a writer can use to improve their writing and clarify their message for the reader, just like they’re techniques for getting more likes on your Facebook page.
 

#1.  Write Your Introductory Paragraph First

 
Readers do not like being taken on a wild goose chase when seeking information.  They like organized and easily understood text with a logical format.

Open with a clear introduction letting the reader know what the intention is. Make sure that there is a strong opening with good descriptive words.  When writers wander around their subject too much at the beginning, readers lose interest.
 

#2.  Monitor the Length of Sentences

 
Make sure sentences do not drag on forever.  Use shorter sentences when possible to get points across.

Use longer ones for explanations or definitions of your main points. Make sure commas are in place to break up sentences that require lengthier explanations.

When sentences are too long, readers may find themselves having to reread passages.

Sentences should never convey more than one point at a time. Also monitoring your articles that you write in social media through top wordpress plugins can further enhance the visibility of your article.
 

#3.  Read Other Examples

 
Nothing helps us to better understand how to come across than to read how other authors structure theirs.  If you are going to write a classified ad, read other ads for ideas.  Many new ideas can be infused into your writing by taking the time to study other authors.
 

#4.  Change Sentence Structure

 

Keeping readers interested to the end of a piece can be a challenge.  If the entire article is a string of boring statements or commands, they will quickly scan it and move on.  Make sure there are a variety of questions, statements and commands to keep the reader interested enough to want to finish reading to the end.

If they are actively engaged

in thinking about the subject and asking themselves questions, the message has hit its mark.
 

#5.  Edit and Proofread

 

If there is too much talking in the article and the main points are being buried in too many extra words, take them out.  Stick to the point and remove the fluff words. Much can be said with a few simple sentences.  It is not necessary to give a lot of descriptions about things in general unless the subject calls for it.

Many times proofreading just exposes simple little mistakes that you are grateful to have caught by going back over the piece.

Make sure you edit your writing as much as possible since writing can be a powerful source to generate traffic!
 

#6.  Accurate Spelling and Punctuation

 
Nobody wants people to read an article and leave readers with the impression that they are uneducated.

Make sure the message is accurately conveyed through proper spelling and punctuation.  Many office programs offer spell checks and correction settings for writers that make it easy to spell and punctuate correctly.
 

#7. Edit and Proofread Out Loud

 

When you read with your eyes and not your voice, it is easy to miss mistakes.  Professional editors often read books backwards so they will not get involved in the story.  It is easy to pay more attention to sentence structure that way.
 

#8.  Use Strong Nouns and Verbs

 

Using good, strong and clear language clearly illustrate exactly what you intend.  Action words and adjectives are a sure way to accomplish this.

When authors write, they have a clear picture in their heads about what they want to convey.  However, without good nouns and verbs to convey it to the reader, the message can get lost in translation.  Take time to make sure the message is unmistakable.
 

#9.  Use a Dictionary and Thesaurus

 

The whole point of writing is to communicate.  Do not neglect the basic tools of writing.  A good dictionary will provide spelling and usage.

A good thesaurus helps with using different words with the same meaning to eliminate redundancy.  Make sure both are updated frequently.
 

#10.  Read Out Loud to Someone Else

 
Writing alone can sometimes cause authors to miss things.  Often other people can catch things we completely missed.

When we read aloud, we are looking at the words and wanting to pronounce and say things correctly.  It is at this time that many simple mistakes can be discovered.
 
Readers will appreciate every effort made by a writer to simplify the message.  Use the basic tips listed above and always consider your audience when writing.

  6. Hi Samuel,Wonderful article….One more best way of writing for me has been the SEO way of writing where you need to target a keyword and find the keywords related to it…I have found writing like this for anything even if your not doing any kind of a blog post really works and makes the sentences stand out from the others.

  11. It might sound Funny but i never had the idea about “Thesaurus”, actually i didn’t paid attention what is actually means. I do write poems and short messages collection and face encounters rhythm problems because of lack of required word limit.
    By the way, Thanks for the complete and comprehensive list on improving one’s writing capability.

  12. What about persistence in practice ?.
    I guess most of the fellows do follow the above rules but what they (even me) fails to follow is continuous effort and practice.
    As you have stated, the points are must and unavoidable if one is really want to be a good or say great writer but do keep in mind, writing is an art, the more you give time on it better the output it..!!

  13. I used to hate writing articles. Now I don’t mind writing them. All it takes is repetition. What I used to do when I first started out was to read an article and rewrite it from the knowledge I’ve learned from that article.

    Also it’s good that you’ve mentioned proofreading. Whenever I finish writing an article, I find TONS of little mistakes

    Many bloggers would be well-served to just follow point #1! They lose me with their rambling (sometimes keyword-stuffed) introductions. Brevity is the soul of blogging!

  17. #10 is SO important!! I do 1-9 consistently, but don’t always remember to do #10…when I do, I come across things that I never catch in proofreading (like tone, or words/phrases I want to stress, etc.). The posts I read aloud are SO much better for it!

  18. Great tips – especially the one about reading it out loud. I don’t read my stuff out loud to someone else but I do usually get my husband to read my drafts to get his opinion and check for mistakes – he almost always finds something I’ve missed, no matter how many times I’ve checked it!

    I’d add that editing and proofreading are often better done on hard copy, rather than on screen.

    I think another good guide is to ask yourself “would I want to read this?” – if you’re bored to tears when you read your draft, that could be a sign that it needs a bit of attention ;)

  19. Thanks for writing the simple and exceptional tips to improve the writing skill.

    Am a blogger and am following most of the ways which you specified here to become a master in writing.

    I never forget to edit, proofread and to read loudly before publishing my post.

    Hope these extraordinary tips would help the newbies to write better, keep writing!

  20. Love this post, no wonder it got so many comments :) I’d add another tip #11. Don’t overdo it. Many people never publish a post or publish it after days and days of doing and redoing.

    Sometimes is better to just shut up and ship it. You can fix it later on – in fact I highly recommend checking and revising your posts from time to time to make sure they are still current and free of mistakes. This is how you build a trusty blog.
