Five Unforgivable Mistakes You Should'nt Make As A Content Writer

Updated on November 27, 2016

“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in a reader. Not the fact that it is raining , but the feeling of being rained upon”- E.L Doctorow.

Writing is an innate talent which can be nourished with years of practice and rigorous training. However, if you are planning to step out in the world, and compete in this 3 billion dollar industry, you surely need to stand out in the crowd. In this article, I would like to discuss about how you can gain expertise in writing more effectively and efficiently.

1. Writing without in depth knowledge of the topic:

Firstly, it is utterly important for a writer to actually be knowing the intricacies of the subject he/she is choosing to write about. Also, you should be very clear when you are articulating your views on a topic. You would feel more confident while writing only when you would have spent enough time reading thoroughly. Therefore, in depth knowledge of the topic is extremely essential. Also, as a writer, you should also be open to new dimensions without being prejudiced.

2. Being grammatically incorrect:

Secondly, always ensure that you are grammatically and structurally coherent when it comes to writing. Many of content writers focus more on making their content engaging but they forget that readers prefer reading more systematic and organized content. It is suggested that you make your rough draft, organize your points before you sit down to write.

3. Being extremely verbose while writing:

Thirdly, it is always advisable that you keep your writing piece simple as you aim to reach out to a crowd of readers. By this, I simply mean to say that, using bombastic and stylistic language won’t fetch you those brownie points in writing. Always remember that your target should be to keep your writings simplistic and interesting so that many readers can realte to it.

4. Being superficial in your writing :

Fourthly, as a writer, your involvement with the content is must. Readers like to read content which is illustrative and relatable. Hence, as a writer, you need to ensure that, you are creative enough to make your writings informative and appealing. This can be done by making your titles catchy so that a reader is tempted to click at least once.

5. Not Being Open To Constructive Criticism :

Fifthly, as a writer, you should always be open to healthy criticism and be willing to embrace your mistakes to improve yourself. Remember that there is always a scope for improvement and your sole aim should be to learn with every passing day.
