– I hear a lot of people feeling hog tied or struggling with writers block or simply claim they can’t write because they are horrible writers. I have put together a few of my thoughts here are a few tips and tricks I have learned. Please LIKE and COMMENT below if something here helps you write your next post. How can you expect to catch fish if you are using the wrong carrot?
Understand your target audience – use attractive bait
I use to be a shocking writer – I’m not kidding – the worlds worst procrastinator and yes this is me off for another walk – I would waffle, yes run way off task and feel like giving up – until I figured out it’s just like going fishing. It helps to know your target audience – offer the bait to get their attention – reel them in the objective is to land them!
Most importantly, don’t be afraid to simply write!
I discovered one day that it is actually OK to waffle or ramble on – then cut when you edit – or if you write really too brief – do not fret, you may need to pad your work out when you edit. My point here is to get your feet in the water and just write!
Personally I don’t worry about paper except for bullet or subject points – the mission (if you choose to accept it) is to get to the end – then edit!
- Firstly, appearance It helps to make the writing look pretty a lot of readers are lazy so chunks of words are easier on the eye.
- Secondly, make each point flow to the other then your work makes sense.
- Finally, the purpose, reason and call to action, so you wind things up at the end with a tidy conclusion. From this conclusion you will create the summary telling people what they can expect and what to do and rework this into the first paragraph again so that it makes sense. In doing so you grab the readers attention and a reason to pay attention. This is the ‘bait’ that generally ‘hooks’ the reader into read more.
Remember – just like going fishing you need;
- hook (the summary first paragraph – slide in a clever call to action – see above)
- line (the reasoning) and (tell the reader what to expect, what will come next)
- sinker (the call to action – buy now – land your fish – write your next post)
I will try to be brief – constructively – concise…
Use your skills you know what they are and how to use them… (Avoid over thinking it – you may miss the obvious). Are you more skilled in say maths, instructing others, working with young people or with people who think and / or behave ‘differently’. Skills in these areas are Logic, motivation & ability to engage others…
My first observation with writing flaws is not knowing what I am about to read – I need to be told what to expect, what will come next… understand the point you are trying to make and say it… I like many readers have poor attention span, basically lazy…
If it is a review – please tell me. If it is a story – your personal experience – tell me. My point here is that readers are inherently lazy they may not read to the end. So it helps to keep in mind the target audience. Your objective is the call to action so if you want to land that fish you may need to also slide a call to action within the body of your content. When you re-read and consider the reader – excite them and you will be back on track. Take up your next challenge and write your next Post – practice my friend makes perfect.
