I say it’s a great technique to write an article. Not only some sweet words or some phrases can enrich an article. Rather there should exist a content rhythm and flow until an article finishes. Most of the time I find some renowned writers write with too long sentences –may be 40 words or even more—but why? Readers mostly are not at all ready to absorb such a long sentences in their busy days. Most of the time long sentences are complicated to understand and should be avoided. Truly speaking article writing should be more or less informative which can hold a reader to read. Information is always interesting to a reader which is unavoidable for a good article. Subject or topic related information is of prime importance for an article. It’s needless to say grammar and spelling mistakes should always be avoided. Pictures, images, graphs and videos can be included to enrich a long article (above 1000 words). For long article paragraph with sub-heading is a must—may be written with bold letters. Some of other important factors may be as follows:
- Use of bullet points for important items
- Use of active voice in sentences
- Use of numerical nos. for important items
- Use of teaching tips
- Use of FAQ
- Use of “I”, “WE”, “You” in sentences
- Not to use “weasal” words.
