11 Tips to help Improve Article Writing Skills

1. Startup

“The fewer words you use, the better.”

Yes, you read it right.

Don’t worry about the length of your article besides this you should keep in mind that you’re writing this article for developing your skills of writing which can help you many people in the future to develop the same for themselves.

2. Write Early in the morning

This is something interesting.

As I have analyzed many serious and professional writers and Bloggers do prefer to write their contents in the morning time. Morning time allows them to write fresh stuff.

Moreover, the morning atmosphere seems quite quiet and energetic, which can help them to improve their Article writing skills right away. Give it a try and feels the fresh experience of being a healthy writer. I’m sure it won’t hurt you.

3. Be a Good Reader

This is the most mandatory thing for the one who wants to build their career in Writing or Blogging. You have to be a good reader. With this, your mind will allow you to create your thoughts and let allow yourself available to write on your particular topics. There are many more blogs available to follow, having some good and informative content.

“YOU are what you read and Write!”

4. Be Simple

For generating good traffic on your content, your way of writing should be simple enough.

For that express your views in a simple and appropriate way. This will help visitors or readers in a good manner.

5. Complete your articles in various stages

One who wants to be famous with his contents, have to follow some serious stages while he is writing his article. Every blogger knows writing an article takes much time, and every blogger and writer have to let pass on their articles through many stages.

Firstly you have to analyze your topic that you’re going to write on it.

Secondly, you have to make a list of some ideas of the related topic. Thirdly you need to complete sentences and paragraphs of your article, related to your topic. Fourthly you need to edit your article and let clear all the queries.

Lastly, proofreading is a must.

These were the stages to follow while you’re writing on a single topic. Be sure these all stages need some specific time. For that, you need to make your schedule for the following stages. And then it will become a healthy content for sure.

6. Write in a Distraction-Free Location

Many bloggers have many more accounts on many social networking sites and have many more other things that can easily distract their minds while they’re about to write an article.

And I’m sure that you are having the same. For that, you should keep your location where you can find out some peaceful atmosphere around you.

Avoid your Social networking activities and mobile phones while you’re writing something.

The distraction-free location keeps you motivated to write healthy content. If you wish to pimp up your Article writing skills and speed, I would recommend writing using any Distraction-free software.

You can use the WordPress Distraction Free Writing option.

7. Go smoothly

To create better and attractive content try not to edit while you are creating your article – just go with the flow of your thoughts. There are some mind tricks working here.

Creating and editing content works on different sides of the brain.

8. Research well before Writing

I have mentioned above, some stages to go through when writing on your selected topic. Before you start, do very thorough research on the particular topic on which you are going to write.

It will increase your knowledge of that topic, and you will be able to write freely and informative. Having deeper knowledge keeps you unique in this field.

9. Give yourself a specific amount of time

Though after having all the knowledge and all the researched stuff you need to be specific yourself. I know you’re quite a busy person for that you have to separate some time and give some specific time to your writing skills.

You must have to be specific in time for grasping deeper knowledge, writing articles, marketing them, etc. It will allow you to become a famous one. This is not just a one-day business, for that you need to start this activity A.S.A.P., every day!

10. Note down your research

This is essential for writing on a particular topic. As I have mentioned above, writing is not an easy task and can’t be finished in a single stage.

While you are researching a writing topic, you must keep a notebook and a pen for noting down some eye-catching sentences related to your topic. It will keep your readers interested in reading your articles.

This is a must-have skill for all professional writers and bloggers.

11. Write Regularly

As they say, “Practice makes a man perfect,”  If you want to be a good writer you must make a habit of regularly writing. For that, you need to follow the above steps, and I’m sure these tips will be helpful for you all in the future.

So, have some patience and make yourself available for writing on a regular basis.

These were the tips that can make you a professional writer or a well-known blogger. You need to keep yourself motivated in your field, and that’s the key to your perfect career.

    I found that if I write an article and read it again a day later I improve the content a lot. I see a lot of errors and ways to improve just by saving as a draft and rereading it after a short while

    Hello patel,
    Lists are great, they are fairly easy to construct, provide links and a quick blurb about the site you are linking to, hey presto, instant articles. I use the list method a lot in my article marketing but not so much on my blog, need to change that.
    I find having a title helps me write, makes it easier to find the words.

    “Article writing is an art and it’s not everybody cup of tea” Does it mean that you cannot write something good for your audience if you don’t take it as an art. I think Authoritative writers offer factual information and aim to solve or teach the readers. However, I also agree, at times, even experts can writer poor articles without knowing. Keep up the great work. Will be following.

    Thanks Patel

    You have outline very potential and to-the-point tips for Article Writing. However, i must add that for article writing, you always need motivation and spirit. Excellence don’t come in just one day, you need to be patient and need to work on your errors to rectify your problems. I must say that the most common problem, most people are facing is run-off sentences and grammar. Therefore, one must comprehend the true concepts of article writing and should implement them with right pace to get the optimum results.

  10. Sufian

    The most important thing is writing regularly which you mentioned at the end. One must realize that excellent expression requires a hard work. If you work on regular basis only then you can improve the quality of your writings.

    bloggers need to articulate their views and solution for general problems through their posts. At times, it could get hard to keep up the pace with other activities and writing high quality articles so it’s better to always have a schedule and fixed priority for the tasks in hand. Thanks for sharing these useful tips,

I have started learning grammar and also working on my writing skills and off course shoutmeloud is one that is keeping me motivated. Hope soon i will start blogging.

    1. Pranay Patel

      Look Nikhil,
      Blogging is not a one day business, if you really want to become a Blogger you need to make a move ASAP. No one is perfect because there is always a scope for improvement . All you need to take is your first move. Don’t worry about your skills and all, just go and jump into Blogsphere and be a hard learner.
      All the very best.
