How to Write Informative Articles
Most of my articles are informative. I rarely write stories and I have never written poems. I like to write on history, art and architecture, religions, atheism, places, personalities etc. I also write 'How to' articles, covering a variety of subjects.
While writing an article, I take a precaution. I do not read any article on the same subject written by others on the net or in the print.
This is a must precaution every writer should take. If you are going to write an informative article and read articles on the same subject written by other authors before starting to write, your article gets affected by the articles by others. So you must first write any article using your own knowledge. Once you complete your article, only then you should consider what others say about the subject in their articles. Then If you think that you have missed some points, and want to add to your article, do it. But remember that, you should add the point in your own way, you should not copy.
While writing informative articles, many times you need correct information, references, statistics, facts, quotes etc. To get all these things, you have to read the books on related subjects or to search on the internet. But you should do it while rewriting your article, and not in the first phase of the writing. In first faze, write according to whatever you know.
Another important thing is that the informative articles must not be just informative articles. You should add your own thoughts in it. Your own analysis of the subject is also important.
In 'How to' articles, you should keep in mind that the readers of such articles know less or know nothing about the subject. So you should give step by step guidelines in such articles.
One or two photographs are must in every informative article.
Please note that, for many writers it would be hard to follow this method of writing, but if you want to be original, you must try it.
