You may ask yourself, “How is it really to create an amazing content?
Of course, we don’t just sit there and bleed. We research. From How to’s blogs and tutorials to writing guides.
All Parts of Your Article is Important
There are a lot of information online waiting to be found. Too many actually that it is hard for us to catch on. So usually, the case is when we research for a certain content, we usually skip the first part of an article and move into the body and conclusion. Because we are sure that the real meat is in there, in the middle part of the article.
Doing that skimming and scanning reading technique, does it really helps? Maybe it is recommended for quick learning. In fact, it is even suggested by most learning experts.
But I don’t think that it is beneficial if you want to learn a craft. On writing, we should not only focus on the grammar. We should also focus with the nitty-gritty of the subject. Of the connotations of each word and how it affects the context of the sentence.
Now, when I try to write a creative content, I am struggling in creating introductions. Why? Because I did not expose myself to them. I did not train myself to write one.
That is one big mistake.
Most readers are captivated by the catchy and eye-catching introductions. Whether it is a single liner or a whole paragraph.
Creating a compelling introduction that catches the attention of the readers will ensure that readers will go through your content until the very end.
Breathing Life Into Your Article
Sure. You may be able to finish creating a content. But were you able to breathe life into it? In other words, did you create a guilt-free content? Are you sure that you did not just create a click-bait title with an SEO-packed content ?
We don’t just create contents out of the blue. We research for it. We take time, effort and coffee to create one. Even some of the big-time bloggers out there say that creating content sucks.
So every time we research or read, we should take time in reading everything, all parts of the article.
We should be an empathic reader. Feel it. Imagine it. That’s how we should absorb information. That’s how great thinkers of our history became great creators. Most self-helps will say to “envision it”. But I think it’s cliche.
I love more what Albert Einstein said,
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
And imagination equates creativity. And great creation.
So, do you think that writing great introduction is important?
