Write an Attention-Grabbing Title

Updated on July 22, 2010

Picking a topic to write about can sometimes be frustrating and can have you feeling as though you have hit a brick wall. This is more commonly known as writers block. If you are a writer, you know exactly what it is. An interesting topic is all up to you and it all depends on the style of writing that you are planning on focusing on.

Non-fiction writing has a wide array of topics, that are completely open to you. Remember that different writers have different perspectives, so one writer may complete an article that is completely different than another one. Keep in mind too, that one article may seem better to some than others, that too is based on perspective, but one thing that cannot be changed throughout each is correct spelling and grammar. If that is missing, it can lead to a low judgement by others. Make sure to proofread all of your work before submitting it to a client. Get it edited, if need be, or take courses that help you to correctly use proper sentence structure.

Write a Title that Pops

  • Be┬áControversial
  • Plant a Seed
  • Include Tidbits of info, either for or against an idea
  • Use a Title that makes no sense, a reader will want to read on to figure it out

The topic that will best suit you is something that interests you, that way you actually learn something or you are able to provide insight that others may not have. Indulge your audience with your knowledge and make sure that your article is based on correct facts. Making up facts and information can be frustrating for readers that know better. Double check and be sure that you understand what you are writing about. Researching a topic may seem like a huge hassle but you may find it very useful if you are asked to write another article on that topic again.

No matter what topics or titles you pick or how you word or edit an article, there is always someone that won't like what you have written. There is nothing that you can do about this, so try not to take it personally and move on. Keep on keeping on, the longer you do it, the better you will get.

      Hi Steph, thanks for the tips. Sometimes I just feel as though there is nothing left to write about, and I do get writers block. Your encouraging articles help me to get past it.
