Art of Article Writing

Updated on October 6, 2011
Writing effective hubs
Writing effective hubs

Article writing is an art everyone knows that. Due to this fact, people do not try to write an article, they think it is a difficult task to write an article though they are able to easily write their school papers and exams. But, if you could write an essay in school days then you can definitely write a good article. What you need is to give it a try, and as you know it is an art, you will become better only after writing few articles.

When you feel you are becoming better, always give some time to read back your old articles and see how you can improve them. Sometimes, you may give it a complete new picture and sometimes you may even find that now in the present articles, you are missing some good points that you were using earlier.

A famous quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald for our hubbers:

‘The reason one writes isn't the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say.’

Many times what happens is, you do not understand what to write, actually this happens normally after writing around 15-20 articles. But, this is the only time when you can carve yourself into a good writer, now you should write from heart and listen to your inner feelings and not the topics that are visible to you. Write what you like, how you feel about something (just anything) get your deep thoughts onto the paper.

‘Writing is nothing more than a guided dream.’ - Jorge Luis Borges

Now you have become a good hubber, and keep on writing your feelings and thoughts.

      Great article, it's harder for me to just "write" sometimes and not have something attached to it.

      There are several social issues worldwide, you can pick any of the social issue that you feel worth writing. You may also write about current lifestyle, how it impacts our health and life.

      If you tell people that it´s easy to write a nicely valuable article, most will laugh.

      You can only write "well" if you know what you want to give in return. Find something that you are passionate about and start writing!

      Hey dude!!!

      What a fantastic topic you have chosen

      I had read a lesson in class 10th the title was “kya likhoon”

      The writer was thinking what to write and in this way he wrote so many things

      You are just like that you have selected the first point of writing and suggested a very good thing

      All the writers want a huge volume of readers, any man who will look into his heart and honestly write what he sees will find plenty of readers and you have done such type of work. great!!!!!!!

      Patience and practice is the name of the game. Its tough initially but if you can be persistent in your work, you'll make it.
