Art of Article Writing
Article writing is an art. Who are all writing an article, they should be consider as an artist, because, they are creating something. The way of presentation is the different between the normal article writer and article artist. Mostly everyone is ready to publish an article. Unfortunately most of the articles are never reach the satisfied welcomes, because, lack of formation. Article writing is a simplest and easiest art, anyone can perform this art. The rules of this art is too simple. Once the writer understand the rolls and regulation of an article writer, then they can become an article artist.
1% idea & 99% inspiration
Aggressiveness is the first required eligibility criteria to perform this art, because most of the writers are think article writing is challenging one. So first of all, they should ready to accept, article writing is too simple. Particularly writers think, article writing need more knowledge and idea. But the reality is, article writing need creativity much more than any other components. In a normal term, article writing need “1% idea & 99% inspiration”. It mean, the writer weather having knowledge of the particular topic or not. It’s not going to be an issue at all. The writer should have a passion on the topic. In case the writer, think they are well known the concept, it’s all so a wrong, because if they think like that, it indirectly mean, they are never ready to accept the new things, of the particular concept. In this terminology, we can follow our old formula “No one know everything, No one don’t know anything, everyone know something”. The upcoming article writer can chose any topic, based on they’re convenience. The concept should be a simple one (ex: monopoly). In other world, it should not be a vast concept (ex: economic). If the writer already published more than ten to twenty articles, then they are got the bass. So there after they have to choose the concept based on the readers point of view / requirement. The reader’s requirements change simultaneously. So the article writer also should continually update their self, to find the readers requirements.
Before start writing an article on the particular concept, writer should read the concept related article and book. It will help to reduce the number for confusion.
Before construct our article building, we should discuss about the basic formats of article writing. Formats in the sense, article writing can be classified in to two formats. Pyramid and riverside pyramid. Pyramid is a format, which is start form the introduction. Rivers pyramid start from the conclusion. This format is depend based on the article. The writer or artist should choose any one of this format. Pyramid is mostly suitable for all form of article.
Once the format was selected, then try to narrow down the article points, based on the format. At the very first time, it will be quit tricky and difficult. The easy way to overcome this difficulty, write down all points, what’s blink on writer’s mind, don’t mind on the coherence of the points. Brain storming will help to find more points. Once the points are listed out. Then the writer should read and categories the points. Writer should read each category points twice. Try to add some more points on the category. Category in the sense introduction, body of the article (Subtitles) and conclusion. Once the writer feel satisfied with this points. Then the writer able to get the small amount of clear clarity about the topic.
Create a title
Create your own title for your article. The title should be an attractive one. Normally, we says “don’t judge the book, by its cover”. This terms are only suitable for books. In article world, the title going to decide the value of the article, because time is much more valuable than any other things. Readers don’t want to waste their golden time into unwanted or unrelated articles. So readers just read the title, then they will decide the article is useful one for him or not. It mean title gets much more important than the contents. So chose / create your title very carefully.
Some useful tips for title creation.
- The title should create a sense of interest / mystery.
(Reader should fell, they going to learn something new from this article)
- The title should be completely suitable for the reader’s requirement.
(Ex: Way to overcome stress)
- The title should be trifecta.
(Ex: Easy way to overcome stress)
- Try to create a numeric value.
(Ex: 5 Easy ways to overcome stress)
Language is the base for all oral and written communication. The usage of language is also one form of art, because the communication made for the listener/reader understandability. So the communication producers can create the communication, based on the listener point of view. Then only the communication will be a successful one. This same scenario, was also applicable for article writing. The writer should use easily understandable language, to increase the clear understandability of the readers. While we are discussing about the language understandability, we also have to concentrate on the each words and phrases.
In today’s technical world, we can collect anything form our home, through the internet. So try to find related statistical reports, which is helpful one for the article. Mostly the professional article writers use the statistic on the following ratio 70:30 or 80:20. It men, the statistical report should be in 4:1 ratio. Once the article writer learn how to collect the proper statistical data, and how to use the data, without collapsing the coherence of the article, it will help to create and increase the moral value of the article. It also increase the interest of the readers. It will create a hope, about the article. Once the reader satisfied with this article, then they recommend this article to others. So it will increase the number of readers.
Even though our content also create a moral vale to the readers. The different between the numeric and alphabets is important. In content, the reader can get the concept of the statement, once they completely read the entire statement. It will take more time. In numeric, reader can easily understand the concept, once they view the data table or report. It will save the time. So statistic help to create a moral vale, quicker than the content.
Sub title help to increase the convenience of the reader, because at the first time, reader never ready to read the entire article. They just over loop the article. They only read some of the points. Then they judge the value of the article. The readers reading point will be different by each reader. The writer split the article into different subtitles, it will attract the reader and then the reader just read the subtitle and judge the article vale easily. It will create a double side benefits.
Completion of the article is also important. Most of the people are never ready to concentrate until the conclusion. But it’s a wrong behaviour, because the readers and writers point of views are different. Both of them may be clarify their view on the conclusion part. So conclusion should be a clear and simple one. The writer should not use any explanation on this part. Writer should share the conclusion of the concept. In case any farther researches are required, then writer should share the required research concept.
