How to make your writing sound better

Some people are somewhat talented at writing. Others are not quite so. If you are not one of those talented writers, you will be happy to know that there are a few secrets that will help you to make your writing sound better. In this article, we will have a look at what some of these secrets are. Next time you write, please try these out. You may be surprised at just how much your writing will have improved.
1. Avoid Using Empty Filler Words
When we write, sometimes filler words will be used. Often the writer will not realize they have done this. Words such as: here, it and there are words that should not be used at the start of a sentence. This is because you will have to change your sentences to fit these words.
2. Avoid Words That Are Weak
Rather than using weak words, try replacing them with action verbs or visceral words instead. Using weak words will only create the incorrect grammar. Action verbs or visceral words might include: offer, clarify and devised.
3. Avoid Weak Adjectives
Avoid using weak adjectives. This is because it takes away the strength out of your writing. Always use the very best adjective words particularly if you are trying to describe pronouns or nouns. Be aware of words such as: very, really, and usually. Instead use words such as: gorgeous, great, huge and terrible.
4. Avoid Verbose Colloquialisms
Always avoid flabby colloquial expressions. It is better to state what you mean as clearly as you can. If you don’t, you can be sure that your readers will not want to continue reading.
5. Avoid Normalization
This usually happens when a weak noun is used in place of a stronger adjective or verb. An example of this is: Give your work a proofread. Instead, this sentence should read: proofread your work.
6. Remember To Use Comma’s
Don’t forget to use comma’s here and there every once in a while. A comma will provide the reader with clarity. If commas are not used, you can be sure the reader will not read any further.
7. Make The Most Of Noun Modifiers
Noun modifiers are not used very often but it is worth being aware of them. An example of this is tips on reading. The noun modifier here should be reading tips. If you come across this, please change the sentence by applying the noun modifier.
8. Be As Specific As You Can
Always be as specific as you can in your written work. If you are not specific, the reader will not understand what you are talking about.
9. Write Short Sentences
Keeping your sentences short will be much easier for the reader to understand and read. All sentences must only have one simple thought. Anymore than that, will only confuse those who are reading your work.
These are just a few of the secrets that you can do if you wish to make your writing better. All it takes is a little bit of editing. Before you send your written work off, be sure to spend a few moments going over it. There will always be something that needs to be changed.
