I know it!
You want to become a better writer with a huge readership. But now, you are roaming around the desert with no readers, no visitors, nothing!
You write, edit and publish articles. The realization that no one gives a damn about your write-ups hurt your inner-self. And, it’s the time everyone recognizes the need for becoming a better writer, at least a few care about.
In this article, I am going to share five tips to transform yourself into an attention grabbing writer.
Uncommon Ways to Become a Better Writer
I am sure you have heard a lot of writing advice. Write every day, avoid grammar mistakes, use correct punctuations, outline your first draft and many.
But here, you will read a few unconventional writing tips.
#1. Craft Shocking Titles
We all know this. Still, we overlook!
The very first thing anyone notices about your articles is the title itself. If you make them say WOW on seeing the title, you can win their attention to read the rest of the post.
Do you think creating title is an effortless task?
You are wrong!
Successful bloggers spend more time in title creation than in writing an entire article. Here are a few tips to come up with a jaw-breaking blog title.
- Use numbers (see the title of this article)
- Try to include power words (check #4)
- Be unconventional (check this article to see what I mean)
- Don’t be too short and long either
#2. Read what You Overlooked
All of us have a reading taste, right?
Maybe, you are a fiction lover. That doesn’t mean your friend loves the same. We always try to select something from our likes to read.
Guess what? You are missing a lot of things helpful for the writing.
If you are a fiction lover, try to include non-fiction in your reading list. Who knows, in the next post, a stat can be an appropriate one or not!
Moreover, you must understand the way of writing different literary forms. Fiction, non-fiction, blog posts, research paper, etc. It will make you capable of experimenting with writing styles.
#3. Steal Successful Ideas
What is wrong with me? Am I encouraging you to copy others?
Of course, not!
You read a lot, right? (It is necessary to be a good writer). In your daily reading routine, you come across many favorable write-ups. Then, why don’t you try to write something by them?

Beware! You must include your points in the article. Word-to-word coping with a changed title doesn’t help.
#4. Use Power Words
I have already told you about this in #1 point.
Power words are a word or a phrase that depicts a strong emotion. Readers love articles that play with their emotions.
Isn’t it intimidating to have a blog with no readers? Then, try to use power words in your titles and body of the articles.
#5. Be a Brutal Editor
At the time of writing an article, you SHOULDN’T edit. Let the ideas flow without any hindrance.
Once you finish the assignment, give your mind some time to metamorphose itself from a writer to an editor. You can take a walk, read something, watch a movie or do anything that distracts you completely from the core of writing.
Then, get back to the business.
Edit like you doesn’t know the writer. Eliminate all the clumsiness. Congrats! You have a lean but the best copy.
You can use an English grammar checker to aid you in this process.
I am going to leave the stage.
It’s your turn now. If you follow the methods I have shared, you will surely become a better writer. If not, hmm… Everything is up to you.
