Reader Survey Do You Have A Process For Writing Articles
Total Articles: 38
I've been writing free reprint articles for over a decade now, and during that time I've worked out a process for quality content creation done in as little time as possible. It's taken years to come up with a system that works for me. I remember when I first started I had no process, and it would take me forever just to write a single article.
I just wasn't sure where to start, and I had high expectations for my work. As a result, it would take me a week or so of intense work to generate a finished article. Maybe you've had a similar experience.
Writing articles was challenging at first, but I decided to stick with it. Over time, with writing almost a hundred articles a year, a process emerged and things got much easier.
Each writer will come up with a writing system that works for him or her, so it's a very individual thing. In case you're still in the process of developing your own way of creating articles, I'm happy to share mine. Maybe seeing these steps will give you a system that you can use and tweak to suit your own personal preferences.
1 - The first thing I do is select a topic. For those of you who are new to writing articles, this may seem like the hardest part. Here is something that will make it easier:
Think of one thing that you can teach your potential readers that will make an improvement on their lives in relation to your niche. It doesn't have to be anything big--it very well might be a small thing. You've probably noticed some misunderstandings having to do with your niche or some secret shortcut or trick that not very many people know about.
Think about that one very specific thing and set out to teach your reader about it in your article.
2 - Always write to a specific person. You may think "But I don't have any readers yet--I'm brand new at this. How can I write to a specific person if no one is looking to me for answers and no one is asking me questions?"
You just have to use your imagination and write for your intended reader. Imagine a person who is eager to know about your niche. Imagine that he or she has a lot of great questions and is very willing to implement any advice that you can give. Write all of your articles for this person.
Why? It will help to keep you motivated (no one likes the thought of putting a lot of effort into something that they imagine no one will read). It also will help you to write in a more personal, helpful style and to always focus on communicating your message as clearly as possible.
3 - Start with an outline. A blank page can be very intimidating. You can fix that though--before writing your first sentence, start by jotting down informal notes. Make a list of key points you want to include in your article. This list of points will serve as an outline or guide that you can use when you're writing.
4 - Write without censorship. It's hard to get on a roll when you're constantly correcting your spelling and analyzing each sentence. It makes you feel uptight and constricted, almost afraid to write.
Stop doing that! Just write and don't censor or correct yourself. There is a time and a place for correcting errors, but it is not when you are writing your first draft.
5 - Get away from your article. After your final draft and before the editing and proofreading process, get some distance from your article. Just put it away for a day or two and forget about it. Then come back to it and start editing and proofreading. If you take that time away from your article, you'll have a much easier time spotting errors.
This is the process that I use for pretty much every article I write, and I hope it's been helpful to you. Do you have a process for writing articles? If so, please share it.
