Developing an Individualistic Voice for Your Written Work
By admin on Tuesday, August 15th, 2017 in No Comments
Given the amount of academic work that students are asked to write on an almost daily basis, it is not surprising that, at the end of the day, their work tends to move more and more into the direction of repetition. The same old sentences seem to keep cropping up again and again, in different projects.
A phrase, extremely impressive when used for the first time, having once earned the teacher’s approbation, tends to be repeated, almost constantly until, tired of it, the same teacher suggests you try something different.
If that is the stage that you have reached, it is time to liven up your writing style. The idea here, is to ensure that you write work not only breaks out the pattern of your regular, done to death writing style, but also helps to ensure that your work really stands out from the rest of your classmates’ work. Here are five easy ways in which you can really improve the way your work reads!
- Stay Focussed On Your Topic
Straying away from the topic at hand is one of the easiest tasks that just about anyone could do. What is more, most students do just that. From talking about an article on what makes great libraries, they will stray to talking about baseball and seem to be roving all over the place. That is not the secret to writing a good task. It is more important to ensure you never lose track of the topic you were supposed to be writing about.
- Never Worrying Too Much About Grammar
As they write, a number of students tend to start worrying about whether their grammar is correct or not. A far better option would be to forget grammar, get into your groove and then just write in a flow so that you produce something worthwhile. Proofread to remove errors later!
- Make Clear AND Interesting Arguments
Consider a piece of writing about putting in laws that focus on gun control. It is a subject that most people feel very strongly about. That does not mean that everyone necessary supports the idea of placing laws that pose restrictions to owning guns, nor does it mean that everyone rejects the idea either. At the same time, if a piece of writing is presenting a point of view that is completely opposite to a reader’s belief, then, if the arguments are strong and interesting enough, there is no reason why everyone will not read that piece. Make yours the same way!
- ‘Edits, And Did I Mention, Edits?’
Editing academic work, especially if it is our own, is one chore that just about every student loves to avoid. What is more, it is actually very hard to believe that your work could have any mistakes either. Yet, read the work once or twice, see the mistakes and then remove them!
- End On A Strong Note.
A strong conclusion is like the icing on top of that perfect cake. Make your conclusion forceful and strong to really create an impact on your readers. Writing to incorporate all these points can be hard. Why not contact us at Academic Writing Experts for or professional help then?
