Beginner Writing 101: Types, How-To & Expert Tips

Communication has been evolved out into many forms since the inception of our species and over these billion years the form of writing has evolved out to be the most major form of communication thus far.

In a nutshell, writing is anything that conveys a message from one person to another using various signs and symbols.

In simpler terms, conveying anything that you speak or want to speak in a written format is referred to as writing. There are 2 major elements involved in it:

  1. Emotions
  2. Language

Emotions add a reading worthiness to writing and language helps a person to read it. Without emotions, any piece of writing is meaningless and without language, one cannot understand it. They both go one to one. If there is a defect in any one of them then a piece can’t be referred to as writing.

Traditionally, writing on a piece of paper with the help of a pen or a pencil was the ideal way. However, times are changing now and writing electronically is becoming much more popular (take this article as an example). Whatever you can write offline is possible to do online and even more so!

So, if you have just started in this field then opting for writing online can bring out a lot of benefits for you based on its present state and future predictions.

Basics Of Writing To Get Started With…

 

If you’ve been reading regularly for quite a while now (which I guess you do) then I am more than sure that you would’ve seen those professionally written articles on those big publication sites and magazines such as Huffington Post, CNN, Forbes etc. And after checking out those articles you might have thought, Damn Man! that’s some high-end stuff, how did they end up writing that?

Now, that’s the question you should be asking yourself.

Writing is a skill and ending up writing such an article is an art.

In order to accomplish those, you gotta make sure that your basics and language skills are impeccable. Adding emotions to your piece is secondary and is worthful only if you have a nice grasp on whatever language you speak or want to write in.

So, how to get your language skills right?

To get your language skills right you got to focus on 3 major things. These are:

  1. Listening,
  2. Speaking, and
  3. Reading

Only after you get to a good level in all these 3 essentials will you be able to write well because they all facilitate writing skills.

You might be wondering as to what that good level is?

The answer to this question is simple.

When you reach the stage of fluency then it means you are on a good level.

Furthermore, you need to understand that every language is unique and has its own traits and you need to master those traits as well. For instance, in English language, vocabulary, sentence formation & structure, verbs, and punctuation constitute the major parts of such traits.

Styles Of Writing…

 

On a broad basis, there are exactly 4 styles of writing that define a specific piece of writing. Now, you might be thinking like how’s this possible? Every writer has his/her own style by nature because every human is different which technically is correct but these individual styles ultimately fall under these 4 basic styles either singly or with a combination.

But how?

To figure this out understanding every single one of these four styles is essential. These are as follows:

DESCRIPTIVE

The descriptive writing style is opted for that content whose main purpose is to describe a subject. This subject can be anything in nature. It maybe your car, a random person, your property, someone else’s property, your pooch etc.

If you would just recall those junior English classes in the school then you will easily figure out what I am talking about.

Remember the way we used to describe a scenery?

That’s descriptive writing!

Anyways, if you’ve no idea of what the hell I am talking about then here are some examples to give you a bit more clarity about it:

  • Poetry
  • Essays
  • Journals
  • Product Descriptions

Now, it’s very unlikely that you haven’t read any of those at least once in your lifetime. Everyone has and most of us read stuff like this almost every other day.

Descriptive writing is very popularly used as it involves providing a vivid description of a scenario from one’s experience which happens all the time!

EXPOSITORY

Expository writing is somewhat like descriptive writing. In descriptive writing, the purpose is to describe a subject but in expository writing, the purpose is to explain a subject. Expository writing is based on facts and figures rather than personal opinions and feelings. Another identification of such a writing is that it is usually presented in a systematic format to the end user. Some examples include:

  • Technical Writing
  • Tutorials
  • Reports (majorly news related)
  • Textbooks

Expository writing is also a very popular writing style among authors and general writers. If you would just head over to a basic surfing over the web on different websites then there’s over a 99% chance that you will find out such an article within just 3-5 pages.

PERSUASIVE

If you are into digital products then I bet that you would’ve seen those huge sales letters, tons of testimonials, explanatory videos, promotional videos and a bunch load of other stuff.

But what’s the point behind all of this?

It’s obvious and simple.

To convince you!

Persuasive writing involves writing with a purpose of convincing their end user (which is you). Therefore, persuasive writing is filled up with personal bits of advice, opinions, testimonials etc. A major part of such a content is that it is filled up with biasedness because the writer wants you to agree with himself/herself and that is possible only if his/her claims are justified from your side.

Some examples of persuasive writing include:

  • Advertisements
  • Resume and CV (yes, there’s a difference in both)
  • Reviews
  • Sales Page
  • Complaint Letters

NARRATIVE

If you are into writing a book or something similar then you would probably know this one.

Narrative writing is the one in which the purpose is to throw light on a story. The story may be fictional or non-fictional. Such a writing is filled up with a series of dialogues coming in from a varied number of characters that are involved in the story. A major portion of such stories is focused towards entertainment of public but a few tend to provide life and moral lessons as well.

Some examples include:

  • Novels
  • Stories
  • Biographies
  • Screenplays
  • History

Narrative writing usually has a plot attached to it which is complimentary to the whole story itself.

By now you should have obtained a great understanding of the styles of articles and books available and you would’ve discovered the style you want to write in.

TOP TIP: Instead of sticking up with a single style try to use a combination. This will make your article more interesting, worthwhile, and unique.

QUICK QUIZ: Let us know what do you think about the style of this article and I’ll correct you if you will be wrong.

How To Write As A Beginner?

 

Someone has said it right, “Taking the First Step Is Usually the Hardest Part”. Many people don’t even have the guts to begin doing what they want to do because of the risks involved in it and the difficulties they would’ve to face.

Being a beginner in any field is tough because there is so much to learn and sometimes the information available is overwhelming. Moreover, if you are doing it all by yourself then your journey gets a hell lot tougher unless you have the hand of God over your head (LOL!).

Anyways, I really salute your courage if you’re doing it all by yourself (I did too!) and I hope this information helps you out.

But before we begin…

You know the biggest problem with tutorials like these (how-to’s and stuff) is that they are either super long and very hard to digest or they are so brief that they don’t offer enough.

In such a scenario, I would like to show you a simple way out. I would like to offer you 5 simple actionable steps which will get you started with your writing career in no time.

Ready?

Let’s dive right into it!

1. RESEARCH & PLAN

reading

The very first step to whatever you plan to do is and should be research and planning. Doing so will increase your understandability about your line and its requirements plus it will help you gain amazing benefits.

You might be thinking as to how you should begin your research and planning?

That’s a fair question to ask. The best way to research in this field is to read and that too a lot! If you already do tons of reading every day then it’s great but if you don’t then it’s a big pile of work coming right at ya.

What you should do is pick up a couple of writing materials such as novels, novellas, journals, reports etc. from various authors in various fields and begin reading them. Make sure that while you read them you pay close attention to their style, those minor points of uniqueness you discover, and any other pointers that seem worthwhile. Now, you got to take notes of all of them.

Once your research is complete you need to spend some time thinking.

Ask yourself:

  • Which writing style seems to be the best fit for you?
  • How do you want your writing to sound?
  • Do you want to write a novel, a short story, a report or maybe a memoir?
  • What your target audience would love to read about?
  • Is there something unique that you could put in?
  • What are the other authors missing in their writing which you can add or maybe improvise upon?

These are a bunch of questions that you should ask yourself to grab a better understanding of what you have researched and what exactly you want to do.

TOP TIP: Close observation is very crucial to research because it’s the whole point of it.

2. GET CREATIVE

Creativity is the essence of writing.

Being creative is very important if you want your stuff to stand out from the crowd. It’s simple. There are tons of writers out there just like me & you. Some are with a big background and the rest are just like an average Joe.

So why would the audience buy what you are selling?

That’s where creativity and innovation come in and bangs out everybody.

And let me be very clear with it.

Bringing in creativity to your work will need time and patience. Instead of panicking because things are not working out you should keep yourself calm and focused. You never know when the record-breaking idea will hit your mind.

Keep brainstorming ideas at all times and keep trying without losing your enthusiasm and motivation. The more you write, the more creative you get, the more innovation you bring, the better you get at writing content.

3. START YOUR ROUGH DRAFT

rough draft

Okay so let’s assume that you’ve done a hell of a job on researching and planning plus you have gathered some really awesome ideas for your writing.

But, what’s next?

The next step is to get that done in actual. This is the time where the actual hardship starts. Having a mind-blowing idea is super great but what’s the use of it if you don’t put it to use. Unless and until you get that done in reality, it’s just a thought in your mind. Isn’t it?

So, what you got to do is begin writing in actual. Sounds scary (Haha!). You need to make a rough draft of whatever you want to write. Be prepared because you are going to make a lot of mistakes and make sure that you have a good supply of pen and paper because a lot of paper is going to see the way of a trash can in the beginning (ROFL!).

TOP TIP: Don’t worry about the spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors that you make while working on your rough draft. It’s normal to make mistakes while writing. All of us do!

So, instead of fixing every single error right away you should leave it for the finalization step. Plus, it’s just a rough draft that will work as a facilitator to your actual piece. So, what difference does it make?

4. BEGIN FINALIZATION

After finishing up your rough draft and adding up everything that you would like to have on your end piece, it’s time to actually make it happen.

Start with a quick evaluation of your rough draft and start working on your final piece simultaneously. Here are the things that you must pay specific attention to:

  • Determine the order in which you want your elements to come up.
  • Add and improvise to your rough story.
  • Get rid of any unnecessary things.
  • Make sure that everything is in line to your actual concept.
  • Proofread.
  • Obtain feedback from your family, friends and other third parties.
  • Improve your mistakes and rewrite wherever necessary.
  • Revise, revise and revise!

5. PUBLISH & PROMOTE

promotion

Firstly, congratulate yourself if you have reached this step because not everyone is able to do it. You’ve done a great job and believe me whatever the result maybe you’ve learned tons of things in your journey which otherwise would’ve not been possible.

So, now you have got your idea on paper (or computer) and you want to get that published so that it becomes accessible to the public.

Clearly, that sounds easy but in reality, it’s very tricky.

There are various ways to get your work published and you have to decide on the route you would like to take. And remember, each route has its own pros and cons. For instance, if it’s a book/novel then it’s your decision whether you would like to go to the internet on Amazon Kindle (or some other publishing platform) for getting it published or would you like to opt for the traditional route?

Furthermore, your success depends on how well you are able to promote your work. Simply put, if no one knows about your work then it’s as good as nothing.

You need to admit the fact that you aren’t an established author with a damn big following and if you want to get those eyeballs on your work then you need to work your ass off in the promotion and if you choose the money route then trust me, it’s going to be really expensive.

To be very precise,

Writing a great piece is the first part of your journey, getting published is the second, and promotion is the third. If there’s a default in any of these then failure is definite.

A Few Ideas For Promotion:

  • Find out who are the influencers in your industry and reach out to them with your content. But make sure that it’s worthy of their time before you reach out.

 

  • Leverage social media by promoting your content on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube etc. Start by sharing it with your friends, post in similar communities (but avoid spamming), and pitch your content to popular pages/profiles in the same niche.

 

  • Consider paid advertising via Facebook Ads & Google Adwords. You can start with paid advertising with whatever your budget allows (I would recommend at least $100/month).

 

  • Identify popular forums and communities in your niches and join them. Help out people and try to establish yourself as an authoritative figure. Promote only when your product fits the area. Don’t Spam! Start with Yahoo Answers or Quora if you are unable to find anything.

 

  • Hire a professional marketer for promoting your stuff both online and offline.

 

  • Consider visiting Fiverr for small promotions such as flyers for just 5 bucks!

 

TOP TIP: Instead of getting broken down by failure, learn to embrace it. The number of successes you will have will be in a fraction of your failures and every failure will teach you something. That’s where experience comes from my friend!

Tips For Improving Your Writing Skills

 

Tips & Tricks are extremely important for flourishing in any industry. They encourage the evergreen quote, “Work Smart Rather Than Working Hard”. However, nowadays, every other person who gains some knowledge about an industry begins sharing his/her own tips and tricks. Although in a sense it is good but most of the time such tips are untested, therefore, their validity is unpredictable and so are its end results.

So, to make sure that you don’t have to tackle with situations like these I decided to bring up tips straight from the desk of the leading experts in the industry. And a big plus point is that these tips & tricks are completely exclusive and specifically focused on beginners like you!

Here’s what they have to share with you:

#1 – K.M Weiland

  1. Write for the love of it, first and foremost. As Anne Lamott says, “Being published isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But writing is.” Write the stories of your heart, not the stories you think the market wants. Write the story you’d want to read if you were one of your own readers.

 

  1. Don’t write unless you have to; writing isn’t worth it unless it’s an undeniable passion. But if you’re blessed enough to suffer that passion, embrace it wholeheartedly. Read like crazy; write like crazy. Don’t be afraid to take risks; don’t be afraid to break the rules—once you know them. And, especially in the uncertain days of publishing in which we live, don’t allow your worth as a writer to be defined by whether or not you’ve been published. If your words never touch more than a single life, you can still count yourself a successful writer.

 

  1. Don’t scrimp on the small stuff. Understanding the details of your craft—and the publishing industry—is what sets the pros apart from the amateurs. If you’re really serious about selling stories, perfectionism needs to be a constant goal. In a cutthroat market such as we have today, nailing the small details will make all the difference.

 

About Katie:

K.M. Weiland lives in make-believe worlds, talks to imaginary friends, and survives primarily on chocolate truffles and espresso. She is the IPPY, NIEA, and Lyra Award-winning and internationally published author of Outlining Your Novel, Structuring Your Novel, and Creating Character Arcs. She writes historical and speculative fiction from her home in western Nebraska and mentors authors on her award-winning website Helping Writers Become Authors.

 

#2 – DAVE BRICKER

Discussions of English Language pet peeves provide an entertaining forum for the expression of ire. In fact, if a “pet” is something we cherish, and a “peeve” is something that annoys us, “pet peeves” are what we love to hate. Here’s a collection of common English solecisms—guaranteed not to literally blow your mind:

 

English Pet Peeves: Logic Problems

  • “I could care less.”– If you’re expressing disinterest, you couldn’t care less.
  • Every time I hear Paul McCartney sing, “But if this ever-changing world in which we live in…”I cringe. Correct usage is “… in which we live.”
  • “The reason why this happened is because…”– use either “why” or “because,” but not both.

The reason this happened is because …

The reason why this happened is …

To be picky, we can do away with “The reason” if we precede the cause with “because.”

This happened because …

  • “Where’s it at?”– It’s at over there.
  • “Comprising of”– should be “comprising” or “comprised of.”

 

 

English Pet Peeves: Acronyms and Repetition

  • Why repeat the word that the last letter stands for (ISBN, VIN, ATM)?
  • Shouldn’t we get ISB numbers for our books?
  • Why don’t our cars have VI Numbers?
  • Why don’t we get cash from an AT Machine?

 

Redundancies

  • Plan ahead, plan for the future– can you plan behind?
  • Hot water heater– Why would you heat it if it’s already hot?
  • Past history– As opposed to future history?
  • It was a very unique experience – Are there degrees of uniqueness?
  • final conclusion– conclusions are assumed to be final unless you specify they’re preliminary
  • pre-recorded– You can only record it once.
  • pre-planned– Is this the time before the planning?
  • reply back or respond back– “Back” is assumed.
  • first-ever– if it’s first, “ever” is implied.

 

Contradictions

  • Same difference– Please choose one.
  • Free Gift– Really? I usually pay for gifts.

 

Imaginary Words

  • The seminar orientated me to my new job responsibilities. (oriented)
  • We’ll conversate after the meeting. (converse)

 

Confusion and Abuse

  • “You’ve got two choices.”– usually means someone has one choice between two options.
  • “…on either side”– usually means on both sides
  • “It literally blew my mind” – usually means figuratively. Your head did not explode.
  • further-farther – farther refers to physical distance; further refers to figurative distance: “Is it more than a mile farther down the road?” “Yes, would you like further directions?”
  • lie-lay – To “lay down” means to spread baby duck feathers across a surface.
  • lose-loose – If your button is loose, you’ll lose it when it falls off.
  • everyday-every day – Summer rains are an everyday occurrence; they happen every day.
  • good-well – “good” describes character or desirability. “Well” describes status.
  • fewer-less – Use “fewer” with countable objects. Use “less” to refer to matters of degree or status: After the delivery, one less package left him with fewer to deliver.
  • advise-inform – to “advise” is to suggest. To “inform” is to present with factual information.
  • goes-says – “goes” is outright slang—not an acceptable substitute for “says.”
  • loath-loathe – “Loath” is an adjective meaning hesitant or unwilling. “Loathe” is a verb meaning to dislike.
  • discrete-discreet – “Discrete” means different or unique. “Discreet” means hidden or respectful of privacy.
  • moot-mute – The point was moot and not worth pursuing so Bill stayed mute on the matter.
  • incidences instead of incidents
  • ensure-insure – To “insure” means to purchase insurance. To “ensure” means to make sure: He insured his valuables to ensure their safety.
  • Irregardless– “regardless” with a skin tab
  • nuclear-nucular – “Nucular” is a mispronunciation of “nuclear.”
  • alot-a lot – “Alot” is incorrect; use two words to suggest “a lot full of items.”
  • .50 cents= half a penny
  • peaked-piqued – “Piqued” means to catch attention. “The coin piqued his interest but in a few moments, his curiosity peaked and then he moved on.
  • data-datum – data is a plural noun, often used incorrectly as a singular noun.

 

Weak Substitutions

  • doable-feasible – “doable” is an improvised “verb + able” word
  • use-utilize – “utilize” is pedantic and pseudosophisticated
  • momentarily– means for a very short time. When the pilot says, “We’ll be in the air momentarily, he’s implying that you’ll only be off the ground for a moment.”

 

Grammar

  • waiting on-waiting for – The attendant waited on the customers while they waited for their luggage to arrive.
  • should of-should have
  • different from-different than – “different from” is technically correct: The red ball is different from the blue ones. Use “different than” when making a comparison: Today, things are different than they were in 1980.
  • “One in ten people are…” – the subject (One) is singular, so use “is.”

Hollow Clichés and Crutches

  • “To be honest with you…”– can’t we assume you’re being honest?
  • “The fact of the matter is…”– an empty crutch phrase
  • “untimely death”– who schedules their death? These words cling together to form a tired cliché.
  • “back in the day”– does this mean breakfast?

 

Evolving Language

  • impact-affect – “impact” is not a verb, though its use as one is so widespread that it will probably become one.
  • who-whom – “whom” is fading from language to a point where many grammarians are discarding it like “thee” and “thou.” You’ll find a list of them in Who’s Whom? For Editors.
  • functionality-function – lots of common crossovers here. Theoretically, a program with more functions has greater functionality.

 

What are your favorite English pet peeves? Or is it redundant to have a “favorite” pet peeve?

DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE IMPORTANCE OF A WELL-DESIGNED BLOG

Nothing will take you from “rookie” to rock star status like a well-designed Blog. Blogs are the new black! Even real estate mogul Donald Trump has his own “virtual real estate.” Not only do blogs help writers to build their platform and reach new audiences worldwide, they convey a “serious image” to agents, editors, and publishers. Additionally, they enable writers to “work smarter, not harder” through collective links, guest posts, and social media activities. Without one, you’re not even in the same ballpark with your peers.
If you don’t have the expertise to design a quality site, invest in professional services. It’s well worth the money.

CHOOSE A MENTOR

Having a mentor who has “been there and done that” offers a wealth of wisdom and support. In my career I have had several, depending upon my needs and my stage at the time. A mentor can be an author whose work you admire. It can be an accomplished online blogger in your niche, or it can even be someone in your local business community. Send them an introductory email or letter of admiration requesting their help or advice. You can choose one or a combination of several. Some may respond to your request; some won’t. But, you’ll never know unless you try.

 

About Jennifer:

– It’s never too early to start building your author brand. The sooner, the better.

 

– Not everyone will like your work and that’s OK. You’re not writing for everyone. You’re writing for a specific target audience.

 

– Don’t be afraid to embrace what makes you unique. Don’t worry about trying to fit in. There is a LOT of competition out there. You want to stand out.

 

– Read a lot, especially in the genres you want to write.

 

– Never give up.

On Writing:

 

Regardless if you are a Plotter or Pantser, take the time to get to know your characters deeply BEFORE you start writing. By understanding who they are, what motivates them, what they need, and what past pain they are running from, you’ll see each character’s true shape, and be able to write their actions authentically. This will save you much hair-pulling as you revise because every choice, decision, and behavior in the story will match their personality type and align with their motives.

 

On Publishing:

 

Don’t be in a rush to publish, especially now when there’s a temptation to do just that because of the ease of self-publishing. Understanding (and accepting) that strong writing takes time will put you in a “learning” mindset. Read, practice, and experiment. You’ll find your writing style and grow your craft at the same time, and these two combined will help you succeed. Half the joy is in the journey, but it’s easy to forget that when we focus only on the goal of having our book in our hands. If your name goes on it, honor that. It’s worth the wait to do it right.

 

About Angela:

Angela Ackerman is a writing coach, international speaker, and co-author of five bestselling writing books, including The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression. She is passionate about helping writers succeed. Her site, One Stop For Writers is a powerhouse online library like no other, filled with description, story structure, and brainstorming tools to help writers elevate their storytelling.

Benefits Of Writing

 

Sure, writing seems like a lot of work regardless of whatever you are working on. And sometimes it can be really hard to keep up. Surprisingly, doing those little extra efforts and keeping up with writing stuff tends to bring in a lot of benefits your way.

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Writing helps cure trauma. If you have just been got out from a tragedy and are in a traumatic situation then writing can help you get out of it. Apart from this, writing down your thoughts can actually facilitate faster healing of physical wounds as well.

 

  • If you are just like the big old fat lazy person then jotting down a couple of pages can help you out greatly. Writing is a great exercise for your mind as well as your body. Both of which can help you get rid of that laziness.

 

  • Are you a person who is suffering from depression or maybe just a higher level of stress? If so, then grab some sheets & a pen and start writing. Doing so can relieve all such problems.

PSYCHOLOGICAL BENEFITS

  • A major issue that most of us face is keeping up our focus and concentration onto something. A simple solution for tackling this issue is writing regularly.

 

  • Writing up your dreams, life-happenings, thoughts (in short, a diary) is one of the best things that you can do. But let’s face it. This happening is very seldom (LOL!). The idea here is to change this habit and start writing up whatever that happens to you. Don’t think much just jot down whatever you feel.

 

  • Have you ever faced a situation where you want to explain something but just can’t find the right words? I have and I know that you do too. So, what’s the solution? Yeah, you guessed it right. Writing regularly will improve your language skills (a lot!) and your vocabulary too.

These are just a bunch of benefits that I mentioned here. The actual benefits of writing are way too much and there’s no better way to know about them other than experiencing them yourself.

Conclusion

 

Writing is tough. It’s undeniable 🙁 And if you are a beginner then your journey is going to be even harder.

But you know what?

Every person starts from somewhere (mostly from a scratch) and it’s your hustle which determines how far you go!
