Assignment Writing
by on August 25, 2019
One of the worst things on any news feed is an article that says nothing. They’re shockingly common. and So often people just write fluff.Often the empty articles are packaged up as something useful. There are enough “top five tips” and “productivity hacks” articles and in the world to last me to eternity — if I didn’t die of boredom first. Rarely do any of them contain anything useful. They’re just abstractions — they have nothing of substance to say. There are more shallow, surface-level blog posts on my radar in any given day than I care to count.They’re made of words, but there’s no point and no meaning. It’s content for the sake of having content. Don’t write content for the sake of writing content. Write content for the sake of conveying meaning and understanding. Tell your reader something. Imagine they ask “why?” in response, and then answer that question. The world does not need more surface-level going-through-the-motions content. It needs content designed to teach, convey meaning, make people understand. Rule for writing a good article: tell me a story. People love stories. It’s one of the basic truths of humanity — we always respond to a compelling story. and Keep this knowledge in your toolbox! One of the best ways to draw a reader into an article is to bring it to life with human interest.and Capture their attention with a recounting of an event, the setting of a stage, the unfolding of a plot. Stories are a brilliant way to open articles. They’re equally brilliant ways to illustrate a point. They don’t have to be excessive and garish to be effective. and Tell me in your article about a specific tool you recommend using, and then tell me a story about how you used it yourself and what it did for you. Short, simple, to the point, but suddenly your article is human. Avoid dry writing. In the content-oversaturated age of the internet, nobody’s going to read something bland. Rule for writing a good article: show, then tell. Start by showing me your point in action, then explain to me what it means and why it matters. This is a rule for your overall structure. Present your ideas in the following order: illustration, and explanation, understanding. Show it to me, then tell me what it is, then help me understand why it works and how to use it myself. Any other order will bore your reader, and will likely make less sense. The final and unstated rule of good writing is practice. Practice, practice, practice. Practicing one’s craft is how one perfects it. Practice until you internalize the form and structure of a good article, and producing them becomes second nature. Everybody has something interesting to say. You have more to share than you realize — and the world is always in need of meaningful, compelling content that conveys knowledge and helps people understand. Go create some! I wish you happy writing.
