Tips for Article Writing
“ARTicle” itself states it is an art of writing. Here are a few tips which have proved to be useful for me. Hoping these tips would also help you to enhance your article: TITLE.An appropriate title can prove to be the cornerstone of your article. Before giving a title to your article keep in mind:- It should not be too long.- Should be catchy and grab the readers’ attention at once! THE OPENING PARAGRAPH.This is the most important part of the article & gives the first impression to the reader. It is like the cover of your article.- Try to avoid long sentences – short & sweet works the best!- Should grab the readers’ attention and arouse his/her interest.- Should relate to the topic of the article.- Opening your first paragraph with a date, location or a dialogue is a good idea. BODY.The style of the article’s body should be maintained in the same manner as in the opening paragraph.- It should contain interesting facts related to your subject.- The information you provide through the article should be up to date (before noting facts and figures do check the last date the source was updated).- Avoid too short or too long paragraphs; the length of the paragraphs should be varied according to the length of the article.- All the paragraphs constituting the main body should be descriptive. CLOSE IT IN STYLE.The article should be smoothly brought to end with a conclusion.- No need to summarize your article in the last paragraph.- Live your reader with some unanswered questions.- You don’t need a number of sentences to round off your article beautifully in style. REVISE / RECHECK.Revise and recheck your work 2-3 or more times after finishing it, because a mere mistake can spoil your effort.- Check and confirm the facts you included.- Check the spelling, punctuation and grammar.- Remove / Replace words which you feel do not suffice your article.- Keep your article away for sometime and check it for the last time.
