Introduction: Why Do You Need Good Writing?
Step 1: Making Short(er) Sentences
Bad writers use long sentences to try to make an impression on their readers, but those readers will be put off if the sentence doesn’t serve the point. Shorter sentences are not a sign of the writer being a person of low intelligence. On the contrary, knowing when to finish your sentence and using correct punctuation show that you have a sense of style and direction, and you don’t waste your reader’s time.
Step 2: State the Purpose of What You’re Writing Clearly
Some emails intend to give information, others mean to solve a complaint. Essays argue a point. Say what your text plans to do, and don’t let your readers guess what you’re up to.
Step 3: Finding and Ordering Your Subject
You may have a great subject, but it’s just as important to know how you will write about that subject. In addition, you might have been wondering whether your text should always express your viewpoint or should it be neutral?
Step 4: Dividing a Text into Paragraphs
How long should paragraphs be, and can they really have only one subject?
Step 5: Using Appropriate Connectors
We’ll learn about the most simple connectors: “and,” “but,” and “however,” and how you should use them. In addition: what is the correct punctuation with “however.”
Step 6: Structure Your Writing
Most texts have an introduction, a middle part and a conclusion. What should be in each of those parts?
Bonus Step: A Trick to Make Your Sentences Logical and Easier to Understand
How you order the information in your sentences makes all the difference. Do you put new information first, or last? You’ll find out if you read this!
