Smart Tips For Brilliant Writing

5개월 전

Complex writing makes you sound small-minded. Just consider the title of the study. Consequences of erudite vernacular utilized irrespective of necessity: problem with using long word needlessly.

Here are same ways to start sounding brilliant:


  1. Have something to say
    This makes writing easier and faster. When you have nothing to say you are forced to write sentences that sound meaningful but deliver nothing.
    Read widely. Take notes. Choose your subjects wisely. Then share your information with readers.

  2. Be specific
    I grow lots of flower in my back yard.
    I grow 34 varieties of flowers in my back yard, including pink coneflowers, purple asters, yellow delilies and climbing clematis.

  3. choose simple words
    Write use instead of utilize, near instead of close proximity , help instead of facilities, for instead of in the amount of, start instead of commence.
    Use longer words only if your meaning is so specific no other words will do.


  1. write short sentences
    You should keep sentences short for the same reason you keep paragraph short: they are easier to read and understand
    Each sentences should have one simple thought. More than that creates complexity and invites confusion.

  2. do not over write
    This is a symptom of having too little to say or to much ego
    Put your reader first. Put yourself in the background. Focus on the message.

  3. keep paragraph short
    Look at any newspaper and notice the short paragraphs.
    That's done to make reading easier, because our brains take in information better when its broken into small chunks

In academic writing, each paragraph develop one idea and often includes many sentences, but in casual, everything writing, the style is less formal and paragraph may be as short as a single sentence or even a single word.

  1. Do not ramble
    Rambling is a big problem for many writers. Not as big as some other problems, such as affordable health insurance or the middle east, which has been a problem for many decades because disputes over territory. Speaking of which the word "territory" has an interesting word origin from terra meaning earth

But the point is, do not ramble
