Writing Is Easy…Being A Good Writer Is Very Difficult
The reason why so many online articles and why so many e-books are terrible is because the act of writing is easy, but being a good, engaging, informative and entertaining writer is very difficult. What is worse is that most people don’t know how bad they are at writing because each writer is blinded by his or her pride of creation. Some call it “Pride of Authorship” thanks to the Simpsons, but its first mention in academic journals notes it as the Ikea Effect. The theory is that if you create something, you are often blinded by your own attachment to it to the point where you cannot see its flaws and you feel personally insulted when it is criticized.
Becoming a good and professional writer involves improving yourself every time you write. Each writing session should end with a cold and clinical analysis of what you have written and how you have written it. If you do not end each writing session by learning something, then you are not improving. Here are 7 effective writing techniques for modern professionals that may help you improve your writing techniques. Here are five tools to help improve your writing skills.
1. Paper Rater
Its primary aim may be to rate your paper, but that is not what it does best. This tool is a fantastic spelling and grammar checker. It picks up typos and syntax errors. Run the spelling and grammar tool on your word processor and then try this tool to see how many mistakes you missed during your first check. This tool also points out errors that are not incorrect, but things such as WordPress website builders will say are incorrect. For example, if you start a sentence with the same word three times, then the PaperRater tool will point it out before the “Readability” tool on your WordPress website builder points it out.
- Learn from what you find out from this tool. Don’t take every suggestion it presents to you. If you are not sure, then look up the mistake. Over time, your written English skills will improve and you will let go of all your repetitive mistakes.
