Spruce Up Your Writing

TalkShop writing tipsWork requires much writing. Memos, reports, analyses, presentations require one to compose his thoughts and express his message effectively. More so for those in marketing, communication, and advertising where content is crucial.

One’s attitude towards writing is evident in his work. When regarded as a chore, writing turns out dull and drab. But with the right disposition, the writing is transformed into an interesting read that can move his target audience. How does one improve his writing style? Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO shares this techniques:

1. Choose precise words. There is always a perfect word that captures your meaning.

2. Keep a dictionary and thesaurus handy.

3. Ditch boring words. These are common in one’s vocabulary that do not serve writing well. Do away with “ok,” “good,” “nice,” “awesome,” and the like. Use words that sparkle.

4. Keep writing. Remember that practice makes perfect.

5. Play with words. Puzzles, scrabble, and computer word games sharpen one’s propensity with words.

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” – Benjamin Franklin
