Be Amazed! How To Write The Best Article Ever!
Today is Tuesday and after a turbulent Monday, today The Joker asked me to write an article about how to write the best article ever! Well I had to think, as many of my articles are the best, so how do your define best from less best or not best at all? Did he find articles of which he thinks they are less best?
Alright then let me write about it and show him so he understands that all my articles are the best. I wonder why he writes Co-edited so many times above my posts. He surely just wants to show me he is interested in my articles, somehow cute don’t you think? Ok let’s get started.
It Is Every Writer’s Dream to Write Something That Leaves a Legacy!
I have always wondered, how to write the best article ever, that was when I met The Joker and our fantastic team, and how much effort is needed. Do I need to do research? Maybe a critique? Or perhaps a grammar teacher?
Yes that were those first days starting writing for The Daily Wealthy Affiliate Novel Newspaper. Maybe these questions could help you too in writing a good article, but it will not be the key factor, later more.
So what is the secret? I stumbled upon the answer accidentally when I did an experiment. Dr. Fard was all ears, he loves experiments. Normally he conducts them in his secret lab deep under the mountains in Switzerland, so he was eager to look what I was up too.
How To Write The Best Article Ever! Strong Emotions!
When you have strong feelings like these, the images and sensations are etched into your memory forever. It will make a deep impression on you and you can probably recall word for word everything that anyone has said. Ring a bell? Get these strong feelings down on paper. You felt anger? That will probably burn up your paper.
Did you feel envious? Did you made others turn green too, when you described the exact feeling you had?
How you gnashed your teeth, eyes popping out and heart beating fast? You should have seen Dr Fard’s reaction, that was funny!
Affect your readers and give them your feelings too.
So always, when you are writing, inject your first emotions into it. If you feel strongly about something, have a passion for it, let it affect you emotionally, put it in your article and that will be your best article ever. Give a refreshing viewpoint in your article, be honest, be candid. Write as if you are talking to yourself. Like I do now.
Look at James Altucher, some of his articles just make no sense (my 2 cents to it). When reading his articles, sometimes I even felt like he didn’t organize his thoughts nor put them into a certain order.
- Opening paragraph / introduction to your topic
- Body: supporting paragraphs, sub-headings and sub-sub-headings
- Conclusion: A summary of what the essay is about
Isn’t that what we learnt and how we usually write articles?
Let’s just forget about those structure rules and look at ‘James’ work again. Despite him writing in such a “disorganized manner” (just to clarify, this is not meant to be taken negatively), his articles are accepted, even well-loved by a lot of people.
Why is that?
If you read his words, you would see that it is like he is putting his own thoughts down on paper, as if we are reading his journals. Often I find his words brutally honest.
Therefore we enjoy it.
I call this raw and rare writing, to be savored in its purest form!
So How To Write The Best Article Ever? 6 Simple Steps!
- Inject your feelings, your emotions and thoughts into it. Be personal, be honest and write from your heart;
- Use more of your right brain rather than your left brain (ask Dr. Fard for more clarity);
- The left brain can come in later, after you have gotten the raw draft out;
- You can refine and edit it later to make it an easier read. Same goes for the word count, crafting of your heading etc;
- But never edit the tone, the voice and the heartfelt feelings. That is the most truthful, when you first put them down;
- Never short-change yourself, your writing, nor your readers.
Follow these simple steps and you shall see, that will be your best article ever!
