3 Simple Tricks To Make Your Writing Flow Better
Is writing good content just providing quality information?
No, my friend.
You must do certain things to keep the reader “tuned in”.
While quality is vital, the flow of your writing is just as important.
It makes your content enjoyable.
It sucks the reader in.
Imagine that your article is a roller-coaster.
The ride begins at the title.
Once people decide to ride (read) there’s no turning back.
That’s if the ride was built correctly.
They’ll have to wait till the end to get off which is exactly what you want.
The roller-coaster effect.
Let’s go over how to successfully integrate it into your writing.
1) Use single sentences instead of paragraphs
Contrary to popular belief, people do not like reading big paragraphs.
It unconsciously communicates “a lot of work”.
What works best is writing one sentence and then single spacing.
This style makes your writing appear neat, professional, and easy to read.
People love it.
You’ll never see huge paragraphs on this blog.
They also make the editing process difficult.
It’s a lot easier for your eye to catch a typo in single sentences.
Start using them!
2) Vary sentence length to increase rhythm
This is a trick I learned from Joe Sugarman’s books.
It works great.
All you do is vary sentence length in order to increase the rhythm of your writing.
Let me give you an example.
You do this by making one sentence long, one medium, and one incredibly short.
See what I just did there?
Take a look at the last 7 sentences again and you’ll notice the rhythm I created.
If you look at your screen sideways, you’ll notice the sentences look like a bar graph.
If all your sentences are the same length, your writing will be monotone.
It’ll be boring.
And when it comes to blogging success, that’s the last thing you’ll want to happen.
3) The triad strategy
Here’s another trick I learned from Joe Sugarman.
The triad strategy is grouping 3 items in one sentence and using the word “and”.
Let’s use this article as an example:
The 3 things that make your writing flow better are single sentences, rhythm, and the triad strategy.
By listing three items in a series and having the last item precede by the word ‘and’, you create a rhythm.
Very easy to do.
Apply what you just learned and watch how the time people spend on your website increases.
So will your traffic.
Start using these 3 tricks immediately.
