I came up with these writing tips as a memory aid and a guiding principle in writing when I started writing a column in our local newspaper. The following are five writing tips which are useful and helpful for the would-be writers for their ready reference. I coined them in an acronym, W. R. I. T. E.:
W stands for writing down my ideas that may come into my mind.
R for rewriting what I've scribbled down for grammar, spelling and coherence.
I for integrating necessary facts to substantiate my write ups to make it reliable.
T for telling it from experience or from others. And when I do research, I cite appropriate references to acknowledge primary sources.
E for expressing my writing for others to know, to be informed, or even to be entertained via print media, or internet like blogging.
Now you know these things. Write like you're talking. Everything will come out smoothly with substance and credibility. Therefore, you can write with confidence. Can't you?
