EFFECTIVE writing takes time, perseverance and practice; but with good practical approach and determination, you can turn your creative desire into concrete writing, and accomplish your purpose in writing. To get past the point of just sitting there, here are a few things you can do to make sure you write more effectively.

1 Pull out the keyword list that you have readied for whatever niche or topic you are going to write about.

2 Make sure you have a specific purpose in mind - Ask yourself: What am I writing for? Is it is for a blog, or maybe an article submission site? Am I trying to sell something, or sell me? Am I trying to get customers or traffic? It is important to know what your purpose is.

3 Know who you are writing for - You may do a variety of writing and each group that you write to may need something different from you. Is it information that you are trying to impart, or are you solving a problem? Should you write laid back style or more sophisticated? You need to know who you are writing for, before effective writing can be a part of your article.

4 Spend most of your time writing an effective article title - This is the most important part. If they do not like the title, they will not read the article. You want to grab their attention and make them want to read what you have to say. It is best to use a benefit. What can this article do for them?.

5 Write a very simple outline then - It will have the title, the introduction, thought, and each paragraph that comes from that. Then make sure your ending has the same points that the introduction had. It is like completing a circle.

6 Write bullet points of important things that you want to share - Start your introduction with a strong benefit and build on it. Never wait until the end to share something vital as they may never get there.

7 Do not use a bunch of big technical words or use any sarcasm or insinuations - People read to get an answer, not to figure out what you are trying to say.

8 Write as if you are talking to a friend and you really want to help them - Be yourself and write the things that you would want to hear and know if you were the one doing the reading. It is important to be familiar and warm, letting them know that you understand what they are going through. Never write down to someone.

9 Readers tend to get bored easily, so keep your paragraphs short and simple - Give them the information that they seek easily so they do not need to hunt for it.

10 The last thing is to use a good word processor and fix the easy errors - You should proof read it until you almost have it memorised, and then still get someone to read it. Sometimes you are just too close to the article to see the mistakes.

Remember that practice makes perfect, especially when it comes to writing articles. There will come a time when writing articles gets easier, especially when you follow the steps above.
