Writing Tips

Does anyone have any tips for writing articles?
Maybe template ideas, or just a general outline you rough out before you start plugging in the details to organize your thoughts/research.

Depends on the length - I do outline for 800+ words but for 300/500 words - my typical article length I just write. If Iam spinning the article I keep sentences short : its easier to spin short sentences -well for me anyway. Also only 1 idea per article - especailly for 300 words - its not very much. Oh and the more you do it the faster and easier it becomes :P

Hi Tony

I wrote an article on this subject some time ago, which you might find useful - here's the link: http://www.wealth-city.com/how-to-write-articles.html

Hope it helps.

Tony,

I know this thread is a bit old, but one of the things I've been doing lately is something I learned off of ezines. I do what's called 7 tips articles. I try to find 7 things I can write about a single subject. ex. 7 ways fish oil is good for your heart, or something along those lines. If you have 5-7 tips it is not too difficult to write a 300 word article, just 50-60 words per tip. It also breaks up the article so it is more reader friendly.

Next, I try and take and write if possible 7 ideas on each one of those tips, so you can actually write about 6-7 articles off the original article. This method makes writing multiple articles a lot easier, at least for me. You can then just change words and phrases and post on your blogs, email list if you have one, etc.
