Getting Started on a Writing Project

by Charles

I would have to say that the best way to write better is to format or lay out your points and ideas before you begin.

The next thing I find helpful is to write down a sentence or thought I have about each section. List the points you want to make before you begin writing about them. This will make it easier to read and it will flow much more naturally.

It is also helpful if you take few minutes to look up any additional information on your topic whether you are familiar with it or not, and maybe others points of view on the topic. Try to read others' examples and be creative.

It makes for more enjoyable reading when there is a little humor in your writing.

It is also helpful when you can use a few examples to better explain your point.
