Pick of the Week -If you’re new to writing, this is what you need to know

by Adedotun Adejoorin


If you’re new to writing, you will find this post very useful. And if you’ve been writing for a while, you can also learn a thing or two from it.

Know your audience. Every writer has a different audience. They do not have be friends or family. They are those who need or are fascinated by your work. If you are a poet and your friends don’t appreciate poetry they may not be able to give you a proper evaluation of your poems. 

Practice. You can never become the professional you want to be if you don’t exercise your writing muscles.  You need to become comfortable with your writing voice and hone your skills. This can only be done by writing. Write every day. You can never write too much. The more you write the better you become. Even if it is just half a page make sure you put something down.

You won’t make millions in one day. Every budding writer should know this. Don’t expect to make millions from your first article. Wouldn’t that be great though? This should not discourage you however. The better your writing gets, the better your income will become. Keep writing.

Read everything you can. We cannot say this enough. Reading expands your knowledge. It sharpens your mind. Read the good and bad books. There’s always something to learn. A new word, a new idea or even a new way not to write.

Crush every form of doubt. There are days when you will doubt your ability to write. You will wonder what’s so special about your work but don’t allow these moments to last long. Remind yourself everyday that you are capable of doing this and continue writing.


#WritingTips: Write better with these 5 tips

Sparkle Writers, Writers, Writing

Hello Sparkle Writers! We want to share some great writing tips that will make your write better. Take it one step at a time. Pick a tip and work on implementing it in your next blog post or article. The more you implement these tips, the better you’ll become.

So let’s get started;

#WritingTip1 – Read it out

Yes you read correctly. Read what you have written out loud. Does it sound awkward? Can it be written better? Does it flow smoothly or it sounds forced? Even if you feel there is nothing wrong with it, try to write it another way.

#WritingTip2 – Watch that grammar

Now you will need some extra help with this if you don’t have a good grasp of grammar. There are some things which are better said than written. Be mindful of that. Always use a dictionary if you have a problem with grammar.

#WritingTip3 – Don’t mix up your words

Lose and Loose…

Affect and Effect…

This and These…

Way and weigh 

These words cannot be used interchangeably. They mean different things. Again, a dictionary is your friend. We would also suggest that you read good books if you struggle with spelling correctly.

#WritingTip4 – Get straight to the point

Don’t beat around the bush when you write. Get straight to the point. Less is more. Avoid sentences or paragraphs that are too long.

#WritingTip5 – Read good articles or newspapers

Reading good newspapers and news blogs will help you improve your writing skills. We recommend sites like, The Economist, HuffingtonPost…you’ll learn a lot just by reading one article a day from there. Take note of any new word that you find. Write it down, search for it’s meaning and how it is to be used in a sentence.

Implement these tips regularly and you’ll become a great writer in no time. Remember, we are always here to help you. You can book a consultation with us and we can create a customized learning plan for you based on your writing needs. Send us a mail now –
