Write how you Speak

Write how you Speak

Writing simply, and in an alive tone, using everyday words is more forthcoming and refreshing, than using unnatural sounding words. 

Write like a human.

Tips for Better Business Writing

You can be a good business writer, just by following these five tips:

1. Write as you speak.

2. Read it aloud.

3. Ditch the Jargon.

4. Ignore the English Teacher.

5. Put your main points first.

Read it Aloud

If you read your written text aloud, you will realize where it can be worded better, or where to add or remove a comma. You can also let someone else read it.

Ditch the Jargon

Jargon can be minimized, and complicated words are sometimes unclear to the reader.

Ignore your Teacher

It's good to be creative and free in your writing, instead of just following old rules.

Put your Main Points First

Simply put the main points first, instead of burying it inside the text or email, as many readers don't have the attention span or bandwidth to read everything closely.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

RELATED IDEAS

If your reader has to use Google or a dictionary to decipher what you’re trying to say, they’re going to feel annoyed.

Avoid jargon - it makes you sound pretentious, and it can further alienate your reader. Instead, write the way you talk. Keep it natural and direct.

IDEAS

The first words you write are the first draft. Writing is thinking. You'll rarely know what exactly you want to say when you start writing.

The time you put into editing, reworking and refining turns your first draft into a second draft, and then into a third. If you keep refining it over days or weeks or even years, it eventually becomes something great.

Study story structure and literary devices

Learning about story structure and the different models that dramatists and fiction writers rely on, like Freytag’s pyramid or the classic three-act structure, is valuable for any aspiring writer.
