3 Writing Tips From An Intern Who Had To Crush It!

writing-tips

Everyone has to go through it once, whether it's for school, work, or even if it's something you personally enjoy, we all have to create a blog post. Okay maybe not a blog post but we do have to write!

For some, it can be really difficult while for others it's a piece of cake. Either way, there's no harm in a few pointers from the trenches on how to help you during those writing times when you're completely stuck!

1. Know What You're Talking About

Don't write when you have no idea what you're talking about. If needed, research first.

Try explaining the topic to yourself or someone else and if you know what you're saying you're good to go.

Otherwise by blogging about a topic you have no idea about you'll sound forced and it won't flow. On the other hand, if you know what you're saying everything falls at the right place.

2. Brainstorm!

Always brainstorm some ideas before writing!

It helps you put your thoughts together, structure them. Create a mind map or a word web; it does wonders for your writing.

A technique I like to use is asking others for their opinions and then combine ideas. As the saying goes, "great minds think alike" so it doesn't hurt to get a little feedback.

Once you have your thoughts written down you can pick and choose -- and there you have your topic!

3. Determine Your Audience

Once you know your topic, figure out who you're writing to.

Whether a group of teenagers or some office folk, knowing who you're writing for makes it so much easier.

If you get stuck here think of who the topic appeals to and who would actually be interested in what you have to say. Also; why would they read it? What makes your article different than the others? Keep these questions in mind.

Once that is determined you'll know how to word your article and and what to focus on.
