Good Writing Tips – The Basics of Writing

By Lourdes C Burias 

Your thoughts, brilliantly and skilfully expressed into words, should encompass a good writing. While poor writing strips down the English language, a good writing, articulately lifted from the deepest corner of one’s brain, can transform an uncomplicated thought into a priceless masterpiece. However, before a writer could have successfully created his work of genius, obviously, he must start from learning good tips that focuses on the basics of writing.


From the word basic, you know it is necessary, vital and indispensable. It is basically important, for instance, to know that words have meanings, that even if they just keep floating in your head, they beat and create sounds; sounds which may arrive glowing or awful to the reader’s ears, depending on how the writer delivers them. These words become striking and stunning especially when they come from your deep moments of thought. According to Wordsworth, these are “Emotions collected in tranquility.” It is that which takes you to distant places, and what makes you laugh, or weep. It is that which make you sad or cry. It stirs the feelings of your readers inside. It is what brings you to your clients when you absorb well the basics of good writing.

Learn the Facts

Aspiring to become a good writer is not as easy as putting together words you take from so many sources. That kind of gesture will put an end to your writing career before it can take off. That easy writing strategy can expose you to a trouble, like plagiarism.

It needs conscious awareness that learning how to write is difficult, so don’t do it the easy way. Your skills did not just come out of the blue. It was not taught to you in only one course. Neither was the training given in only one subject that you had in college. You earned the skill through writing a lot: in journals, in your business letters, in your theme writing classes. To learn writing, a person must really write. It is a hard fact that fresh writers should know by now.


Recognize Your Ability to Read

Read, read and read. I always hear this, coming from expert writers giving advice to the novices. I’ve read this from writing tips, and I have it followed strictly to tag along their footsteps. When writing conventions are not followed, you know where to find your place. You become one of those writers all over the place, a writer “everywhere,” but certainly not with respected publishers who are vying to print out your piece, for the public to take pleasure in reading.

Take an edge over the others by reading poetry. Poets are thinkers also, aside from being dreamers, who can train you to do something beautiful out of the words you have. Notice how they can summarize the essentials of nature and its scenery in a bouquet of words only. Is it not that when you read voraciously, and understand every word of it, mastering the art of writing becomes so easy and self-expression becomes effortless?

Getting Organized

Now you know how words can sway or put people to sleep. You are now aware that words can enlighten folks, or attract a crowd when used correctly. But words can disperse your most valued client too, which should warn you not just to write for the sake of writing. You need to get your writing, the ideas you put into it, organized.

Organization is a very important aspect of writing. It is not easy, but you can learn it over time. Getting organized is learning the writing fundamentals like building better sentences, thinking in paragraphs, injection of humors and your point of views. Choosing the right verbs and knowing how to use the modifiers are very useful in organizing. Learning how to organize your ideas into short sentences and into several paragraphs and understanding how they relate to each other, can help show the message you are driving to your clients.

And so it is sensible, for a fresh writer, to remember the basic writing tips in crafting his work. Good writing tips are those which teach a writer to develop the ideas in a persuasive way ensuring consistency and flow of language. A writer should take a clear stand of such ideas and to substantiate it with his personal experience. Equally important are your writing conventions, such as formatting the introduction, writing the middle paragraph and the conclusion tying in with the introduction.
