Don’t worry. You are not alone. All the famous writers today have faced the same problem at one point of time in their journey to reach here where they are.
There is one more scenario which I faced. I used to have lots of thoughts that I wanted to keep down in writing so that it can be helpful for other people.
But the problem is, I used to hate writing. Even if I sit down to write on the topic which I thought to write, I used to get easily distracted or change my mind after writing few sentences.
The main reason it used to happen with me is because I used to fear that readers might not like my writing and may think something negative about me.
But as the time goes on, I did a lot of research in solving this problem. Because I wanted to help people by sharing my knowledge.
So finally, I came down with solution. It worked like a magic.
Hence I thought I will share these tips with you.
I hope you will enjoy reading them and become a successful blogger who will be liked by people.
So let’s go into these tips:
- Write as if you are speaking to a person
You just forget that you need to write a very good article in very impressive English. Just imagine as if you are chatting with your friend on the topic which you and he are interested in. Write the same thing. You no need to be an expert to do this.
Even a school child can help you in writing on what you are chatting with your friend.
- Don’t worry about word count
Yes I know what you are trying to tell. Many experts recommend to write a lengthy content to rank well in Google.
But let me tell you, the thought of writing a lengthy blog will itself make you stop writing.
So never get worried about the number of words.
As I discussed in the above tip, if you start write in a way that you are speaking to your friend, the flow comes and the word count will never become a problem.
You will be surprised at the end of the article by seeing the number of words you wrote.
So, right now remove your thought to write these ‘n’ number of words and just keep on writing.
- Do not follow any rules
Don’t take me wrong. If you stopped writing with a fear that you are not good at grammar, and you do not know on how to follow sentences structure, then simply throw your grammar books and start writing on what you actually speak.
Please note that my intention is not to recommend you to not follow grammar rules. But my main intention was to make you write on what you are expert at and help layman understand on what you are trying to tell.
I remember a very famous quote of Einstein here: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well”If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well Click To Tweet
4. Edit your blog by reading it aloud
So once you are done writing your blog then try to edit it.
Don’t worry. It’s very simple.
Just start reading your blog aloud. In this process if you feel like a particular sentence did not sound good to your ears then try editing it and try to keep it in a different way.
Try to use spell check that comes free with every tool like MSWord, Google Docs etc. and make the corrections accordingly.
