10 Best Writing Tips How to Enrich Your Vocabulary

Verbal communication remains one of the most widespread ways of how we transmit our ideas to other people, apprehend information, and collaborate with people around the globe. And the thing is, the richer your vocabulary is, the easier it is for you to express yourself orally or in writing, and the higher is the chance of being understood correctly. I decided to share my ten favorite techniques of how you can start learning new words and phrases quickly, easily, and with fun! Let’s start with the most important one.

1.       Read, Read, Read!

Our brain is an amazing thing and it soaks in the information it processes, so we remember it and can use later on. When we read, we train our memory to match the words and concepts we know, and when we can’t do it, it means this is something new to us and we should understand what it is before remembering that. I know, it looks like the whole process when I explained it, but in our head, it takes milliseconds to digest and either move on or alert that this is something unknown. Why am I telling you all this stuff?

Because usually, the unknown triggers surprise and wonder which positively affects our memorizing things. Consequently, the more you read, the more you come across the unknown words you look up in a dictionary,  the more new phrases you can use in writing or speech. And don’t take it from me – ask any writer what is the best way to learn new words and they will tell you the same. BTW, reading doesn’t only include books.  

2.       Play Word Quizzes

From Scrabble to Google Word Coach and other apps and games on the market – these are your tools to use to build a solid vocabulary base. Their convenience is that you do it online and can look up the meaning of the unknown word right away, so you check it in your fast memory. When you see it in writing or recognize it when someone is speaking, you’ll easily memorize it, and when you use it in the context, you can be proud that you’ve just added a word into your active vocabulary. Plus, there is a competition factor if you play it against somebody else, which also accelerates learning.  

3.       Get Into the Acting School

I know this is one of the tips you didn’t expect to see here but let me explain. Step zero to successful acting is to learn one character’s lines and try to feel everything in his/her skin. Most likely, the school will stage the plays of the classic and modern playwrights, and believe me, you’ll find unknown words in any of them. One of the reasons why this is a proven technique of how to enhance the quality and variety of one’s vocabulary is that it is learning in context, and you will have strong associations with the terms you try to memorize.

4.       Learn Other Languages

And the students who deal with languages at the university won’t let me lie on this. When you learn a new language and if it happens to be from the same language family as your native one, you’ll learn new words. How is it possible?

Let’s assume English is your native language and you study French (and you already know there is a lot of borrowings from French in English). Your topic is fashion. In French, it can be either “mode”, or “couture”. In English, you can also use “couture” as a synonym to “fashion” and “mode” instead of “form” or “way”. Plus, you’ll understand the word-formation better (like in host and hostess, which are also from French) and learn that there are a lot of word characteristics the English language doesn’t have. Like gender that is expressed either by endings or articles, or both. Isn’t grammar fun? 

5.       Talk to Different People

People who work in different spheres use different discourses and vocabulary. If you’re friends with a future doctor, lawyer, programmer, and visual artist, you’ll know what a synonym to nose, contract, code, and installation is. Yes, by simply hanging out with them and talking about how their day was at the college.

6.       Get Into Writing for Money

My favorite method on this list also means learning through hands-on practice. If you love writing, you can do it for money and for different clients. You can do a blog for a chef, or an SMM agency, or the local barbershop – it doesn’t matter, because you will have an actual need for a vocabulary that ‘slightly’ differs from your regular one. What will you do? Read more professional articles, find the job-specific words, and learn a lot from it!

7.       Use Social Media (but Not Abuse It!)

The easiest way to keep updated on neologisms and put a word or two daily. A year ago nobody knew what “to Meghan Marke” was, not this is a legitimate verb which means to get out of the situation that causes a lot of difficulties in your life.

8.       Learn Lyrics to Your Favorite Songs

It may ruin your appreciation for the song, but you will know what they are singing about. For some genre, it may be a bit difficult  (like with spoken word or rap) if you aren’t familiar with it or not a native speaker. Still, I had to include it as music made me visit the Cambridge dictionary quite a few times.

9.       Find a Synonym for Every New Word

Hard and difficult are synonyms, not the exact ones though, and knowing the nuances is what makes your vocabulary rich and the speech perfect. Thesaurus is a great tool when you need a list, and I highly recommend checking the meaning in the vocabulary and paying attention to the examples of usage.

10.  Watch TV Series

Especially the field-specific ones. For instance, if you study the law and want to improve your professional vocabulary, search for law series like Suits or Law and Order. If you’re into fantasy or Sci-fi, GoT or Rick and Morty will do good. And you know there are a bunch of those, right? 

These were the tips I wanted to share with you to turn the learning into a fun activity. Almost forgot about the most important: don’t learn random things. Focus on something that you know you will use as it makes the process more goal-oriented, and you will succeed in it faster.

10+ Best Technical Writing Jobs for Beginners

Technical writers explain technically complex things in a simple human language that everyone can understand. They know how to write and, at the same time, are technologically savvy. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics expects technical writing employment to grow 8 percent by 2028. This growth is boosted by the expansion of scientific and technological products and increased web-based product support.

If you are wondering how to get started as a technical writer, this article is right for you. We will help you find out more about the qualifications and skills you may need to get one of the best technical writing jobs. Moreover, we will provide you with some ideas on where to search for jobs.

How to Get a Technical Writing Job With no Experience

Getting the first job is the hardest step for beginners. It is the same for technical writers. However, finding a job without experience is not impossible. As long as you have the motivation and desire to develop your skills, you still have a chance to land a technical writing job. Here are some tips that can help you.  

Think about education

The requirements for candidates vary by employer and industry. Some companies recruit technical writers with a bachelor’s degree in English, writing, technical communications, or a specific technical area related to their company. Others may not require a candidate to have a diploma. However, regardless of education and practical experience, technical writers must be proficient in English and have excellent written communication skills.

Hone your skills

To become a good technical writer, you need to develop four essential characteristics: grasp of technology, ability to write with clarity, patience in problem-solving, and ability to interact with subject matter experts.

Our advice is to spend some time reading style guides to learn how to write documentation more clearly and follow a consistent tone and voice. You can take online courses on Coursera or Udemy, join Society for Technical Communication, and listen to podcasts to learn more about different technical writing types. And don’t forget to mention all this in your resume, cover letter, and interview to show you never stop improving yourself.

Craft a professional cover letter

Some people believe that a resume is enough to apply for a job, forgetting or ignoring the importance of a cover letter, especially for candidates with no experience. It is a handy tool when applying for an entry-level job since its goal is to help you make an excellent first impression, even if your background isn’t that extensive. Additionally, it can increase your chances of getting an interview.

If you don’t know what should be in your paper, you can check out thisgood sample of a technical writer cover letter and learn more about the best structure and ways to describe your specific knowledge and skills.

Technical editors work closely with technical writers. Their responsibilities include grammar and spell checking, correction of punctuation, and syntax errors. The main task is to improve the text before it is used for its intended purpose.

3.    Case Study Writer

Case studies are real examples of how companies apply relevant solutions to deal with some challenging tasks. The aim is not only to tell the story but also to show the approaches used and innovations applied to increase sales. Thus, case study writers need to combine science with marketing.

4.    UX Writer

User Experience (UX) writers create content that the user sees when using the product. They make sure that the user does not need clues to navigate the website or application, but interacts with the interface comfortably and confidently. They can write instructions, navigation messages, error reports, menu buttons, call to action buttons, and other micro-text types.

Where to Search For Technical Writing Jobs

If you like some of the careers we’ve mentioned above, start searching for opportunities. Some employers are willing to hire beginners, especially startups that don’t have a big budget.

There are many ways to find an entry-level technical writing job to suit your writing and technical skills. You can check out your local newspapers since many local companies still use them to advertise jobs. Additionally, you can use job search websites and classic job boards which list hundreds of technical writing jobs.

Last Words

Technical writing is a promising career that offers different opportunities for professional growth. However, there is no definite answer on how to be a technical writer. You can start with coding or development experience, then switch to writing, or gain tech experience after starting your writing career.

Either way, the primary key is self-development. Read books, take courses, improve your personal and professional skills. And continue applying for the positions you like, even if it’s hard at first. Once you break into your first job, your further career path will become less complicated.

How Looking At The World Through Rose Colored Glasses Can Change Your Life

Did you ever wake up in the morning and everything seemed black, gray, and sad? It was pouring rain and your head was throbbing. On the way out to work, you spilled your coffee on your scrubs you had prepared for a change and perfectly ironed the night before. You got stuck in a massive traffic jam, and your boss was quite upset at the time you showed up to work… It was one of those mornings.

Don’t let this all affect your mood! Remember the small trick of digging into your pocket, pulling out your rose-tinted glasses, putting them on, and suddenly the world will be sunny, your brain will be clear, and your stain on your shirt will not matter. Can this really be?

What are Rose-Tinted Glasses?

Rose-tinted glasses are not a physical tangible thing; rather, they are a symbol of a state of mind. It is a change in the outlook of how you view the world. You always have the power to view things in two ways; positive or negative. Rose tinted glasses means only looking at the positive side to things.

How Do They Work?

The psychological path of your brain is one of the strongest paths in a human. It can even dominate physical feelings! So all you have to do it put yourself into this positive thinking mode. Which literally means looking at every situation and finding the positive. Once your brain views and thinks of the positive, you will start believing the positivity of your situation, and then feel positive – which will turn your day from black to yellow.

Note: You can still feel pain and sadness wearing rose-colored glasses, but it will be from a different perspective, and you won’t feel that you’re suffering as much. Look at this simple math:

Pain + rose colored glasses = Less pain

Pain – rose colored glasses = More Pain, more stress, more anxiety, etc.

Putting This Into Practice

Let us start with the following scenario:

You woke up and everything seems black and dreary. How can you make this day more positive?

How about realizing it’s just a few clouds blocking the sunshine. Imagine – beyond the clouds is a whole beautiful sky that you will be able to view as soon as the clouds pass! Doesn’t that make the gray morning sky better?

How do you turn a rainy day awesome, you ask? Think positive. What will the world be without rain? If you go down that road you will realize quite fast how you want it to pour!

Coffee spills are no big deal once you put on the glasses! Think about the blessings of being able to hold and drink a coffee. There are many people out there who lost their arms and are on feeding tubes!

Did the boss yell at you? Think “this too shall pass” while your boss lets out all his steam. Keep quiet and keep on repeating in your mind that “this will pass…this will pass.” It will calm you down as he lets out his frustration on you. Later that day, once he calmed down, you can explain to your boss the reason you came late. I have no doubt that he will assure you it was ok you came late and understand you.

An Exercise of How to Acquire Rose Colored Glasses:

Since this is a mindset, you will have to practice installing this “program” into your brain.

Take paper and divide it into two.  On the left side write down 10 “bad” things that happened to you in the past week. On the left side think of how you can look at the “bad” in a positive light. Do this often at first. You will see that the first time will be tough. You will have to use your imagination, or you might even need an unbiased outsider to help you find the positive – but I can assure you that as time goes on, things will get simpler.

I would suggest you wear a “be positive” reminder for the beginning. Put on a pink bracelet or watch to serve as a cue to start being positive.  You can also put some motivational sticky notes near your work desk, bed, and on the fridge.

To conclude, changing a mindset is tough work, but doing so will change your life from dark black and gray to bright pink and yellow! And always remember: Whether you think you can or you think you can’t; either way, you will be right!

Society Offers More Learning Opportunities

Nowadays, future specialists must possess not only the basic theoretical skills and be competent in the chosen professional activity, but also have a high level of development of mobility. Therefore, the training of specialists in different fields should be based on the use of active teaching methods, which will allow students to master the material at the level of their cognitive activity.

We live in a time when there are a lot of learning opportunities, and students can easily choose the most appropriate one for themselves. They can try learning online, order essay on one essay site, take part in an exchange program etc. If talking about writing, there are a lot of sources where you can find free essays https://studymoose.com/. It is extremely convenient when everything needed is available in one place, but not less important is to find desire and motivation to study, and how to manage to do this?

What is an online platform, and why is it needed?

One of the ways of learning is an online platform. Using the online platform implies the ability to create any course in accordance with the goals and professional interests of the student. At any stage of training, the course can be changed/supplemented in accordance with the student’s academic performance. So, if the teacher and the methodologist understand that the student has learned certain material before the planned date, they can pick up new content without spending time on the already studied. In ordinary schools, this principle is partly realized only in the case of working with corporate clients, when an ordinary course adapts to the company’s goals (special vocabulary is added, descriptive words are removed, which is one of the best student development opportunities).

The online platform allows you to save and view video lessons. On the one hand, this gives the student the opportunity to return to the material studied and repeat the study, and on the other hand, the methodologist can look at the teacher’s work and give him recommendations on the work or adjust the course. In addition to the video, the platform provides a very detailed analysis of the student’s progress: the time of his speaking in class, the speed of reaction, the rate of speech, the psycho-emotional state at the time of speech, the growth of his skills in various aspects of the language and much more.

Modern innovations in education

Innovative technologies in education make it possible to regulate education, to direct it in the right direction. People were always intimidated by all that was unknown and new, they were negative about any changes. Stereotypes that exist in the mass consciousness, affecting the usual way of life, lead to painful phenomena, prevent the renewal of all types of training. The reason for the reluctance of people to take innovations in modern education lies in blocking vital needs for comfort, safety, and self-assertion. Not everyone is ready for the need to re-learn the theory, pass exams, change their minds, spend personal time and money on it.

But innovations are really important in education, students had more troubles in the past without the help of the internet. Nowadays teenagers cannot imagine how it is to be unable to find essays online, to ask for help with essays term papers, essays research papers, to order essay online. They are not used to going to the library and search for needed information there, so with the help of innovations the next generation would be able to deal with something even more convenient and interesting than internet resources.

In innovative education, the management of the educational process is organized in such a way that the teacher plays the role of a tutor (mentor). In addition to the classic version, the student can choose distance learning, saving time, money. The position of students regarding the option of learning is changing, they are increasingly choosing non-traditional types of knowledge acquisition.

Exchange programs for students

The exchange program for students and specialists of different ages provides a unique chance to make the learning process interesting and profitable. The main goal of educational programs is to increase their knowledge, improve language skills, gain invaluable experience and gain a large number of positive emotions.

Cultural exchange for students and pupils. The main objective of this type of program is to get acquainted with the culture of the country and to overcome the language barrier. Here, earnings act as an instrument of immersion in the national flavor and communication with people.

Internship abroad. This program provides for the acquisition of important knowledge and valuable skills in their field. Of course, during the course of work, the intern is paid a salary. These programs are suitable for senior students and beginner specialists who want to gain invaluable knowledge and practical experience.

How Can Writing Reduce Your Level of Stress?

Humans face stress as a result of different aspects of life such as work, relationships or finances. School going teenagers also face stress as a result of difficult subjects, bullying in school, examinations, peer pressure and much more. That’s why people would rather hire an essay editing service than deal with that. This is why dealing with stress remains one of the most common essay topics.

While stress in life may be unavoidable, one of the best things we should learn is on how to deal with stress. According to recent research, maintaining a daily journal can be great of clearing your mind of stress and fighting anxiety. Writing down a journal of emotion before taking a test has been noted to boost performance in exams. This is on top of the fact that recording your thought can be a great way of solving the problem.

What studies say

When you keep a diary or journal, this will help you to document your experiences and thoughts. According to the studies, journaling is not only effective in relieving stress anxiety, but it can help those who write to increase their lifespan. In one of the studies that were published in the Psychotherapy Research, it was noted that psychotherapy patients who released their emotions by expressive writing enjoyed better reductions in their anxiety, but this also helped to reduce their symptoms of depression.

This means that by recording how you feel, you can reduce the amount of worrying that you experience. In another study that was published in Behavior Modifications, it was noted that expressive writing was able to reduce symptoms of generalized anxiety disorders such as depression and worry. This means that essay writing is not always hard. It has its own benefits.

How writing reduces stress and anxiety

It is not clear why keeping a stress relief journal is beneficial. However, there are some reasons that are believed to be the reasons why writing a thought journal is beneficial. These include:

  • Making it possible for you to sort out and also clarify your emotions and thoughts
  • Allowing you to reflect upon the journeys of your life as you look at your past journal entries
  • Giving you time to reflect on your emotions and feelings to help you understand them better
  • Offering you an outlet to express the difficult emotions like frustration and anger without hurting your loved one
  • Enabling you to get rid of those negative thoughts and helping you move to a happier state of mind.
How Can Writing Reduce Your Level of Stress 2

How to start a stress release diary

Recording your thoughts is different from writing an essay as there are no rules to follow. In case you have an interest in recording your thoughts, getting started is easy. You will only need a pen, paper and a computer. There are people who find that experience of writing using a pen to be quite therapeutic. But there are those who love typing their thoughts. The good thing is that there are certain websites such as LiveJournal that make it possible for people to journal their thoughts privately.

Take time in a quiet and comfortable place where there are no interruptions. Depending on the kind of person you are, choose a particular time each week and day set aside for journaling. Or you may need just to write when you feel like. Ensure that your journal has a date and begin writing. While there are no journaling rules, make sure your notes are as short as possible. Since nobody will be reading the journal, it doesn’t have to be perfect. You may not need an editing service as you do not have to worry about the grammar and punctuations. All you need to do is to keep writing your thoughts as they flow in your mind. According to EssayReviewExpert, one of the essay topics you can choose for your psychology paper is on how writing can help reduce stress.

Effective journaling method

On top of helping you to reduce stress, keeping a journal will help you to keep a record of events. If you don’t know how to do it, try these effective methods:

  • Write down everything, small or big that you would like to achieve in your life
  • Imagine your favourite fictional character is going through a dilemma and write how they would deal with the issue
  • Do an exercise associated with words and use the word stress

Other stress relieving method

It is worth noting that writing a journal is not an end and a fix for many patients suffering from mental issues as well as PTSD. There are some people who will not love writing. If you are finding it difficult to keep a diary, there are other methods you can use to relieve your stress like:

  • Sharing your thoughts with a close friend, relative or teacher
  • Getting an online support group
  • Singing it out
  • Painting or drawing
  • Speaking with mental health professionals, like the ones at BetterHelp

The most important thing is to reduce your stress by finding a creative way of expressing your happy thoughts and emotions.

Conclusion

People respond to stress differently. There are those who prefer to drink alcohol, cut themselves or even eat junk food. Instead of engaging in such destructive behaviours, why don’t you try writing as a stress reliever?

How To Inspire Yourself By Writing

Let’s face it; all writers struggle with motivation, and even the most disciplined ones can hit a dead end. A lot of things can affect your ability to write. Sometimes we are pressured by a deadline, or we don’t like the topic, or we just feel lost, and our mind is blank.

The sad thing is we can’t force our brain to jump back into writing, no matter how much we try. This happens to be quite a frustrating situation for many writers.

However, it all comes to challenging yourself and how big is your desire to get back on tracks. To help you find inspiration, I’ve made a list of 30 easy tasks, which should do the trick.

1. Imagine yourself writing

I know how silly this may sound, but while imagining your fingers going over the keyboard can trick your mind like you are actually writing something.

2. Remind yourself the REASON why you’re writing

Don’t write because someone made you do it! Write because you want to state something, or because you want to share your experience. You may check out this page for additional info on how to find your “reason” https://tlists.com/find-inspiration-writing/.

Money can be a powerful motivation as well!

3. Commit to a daily goal

For instance: 500 words, five paragraphs, one hour!

Once you commit to it, there is no postponing, excuses, or whining!

4. Let yourself write horribly, just get that 1st draft out!

When we want to impress readers, we tend to use complicated words. However, this takes too much time!

Don’t try to be perfect! It’s easier to correct a rough draft than to write something from the beginning.

5. Find a quiet, clean, well-lit place to write

Environment plays a crucial role in this creative process. Find a place that will bring you positive energy, and block all loud noises.

 6. Switch up your environment to kickstart your creativity

To be in work more, you need to have a decided workplace. However, this can sometimes burden your mind. Try changing scenery, go to a park or a bookstore.

7. Look at your old comments

Take a look at past comments and try to draw a conclusion. They can serve you as insight and boost your inspiration.

 8. Slash your to-do list in ½

Get rid of all the things that burned your mind. This involves all the extra tasks on your to-do list! In this case, you will be more focused on the writing.

9. Ask a good friend to critique your topic

Your friend can often give you a new idea you and inspire you to write better.

10. Take breaks

Writing is all about finding a balance. If you are burnt out, then you won’t achieve anything. Give yourself 30 minutes, two hours, a couple of days. Your brain will tell when it’s ready to continue.

11. Listen to music that fits your writing

Music improves our mood and can affect our creative process. Choose a song on foreign language, so you aren’t distracted by the lyrics.

12. Hang out with successful or self-driven people

Surround yourself with accomplished individuals. He or she will serve you like an essay helper, and you will be more eager to continue with writing.

13. Exercise

As much as we hate exercising, it’s quite beneficial for our mind. It gets the oxygen flowing, giving you the rush of adrenaline, and make your brain active again.

14. Drink coffee, tea, chocolate, anything that has caffeine!

Caffeine will get you focused and make you feel like you are on top of the game.

15. Challenge yourself on your next post

Keep in mind the previous results, views, and comments. Put 120% effort to overcome the previous numbers.

16. Be physically comfortable

Wear baggy clothes, find a comfortable chair, get nice and cosy. You would be surprised how these small things can affect your writing.

17. Use tools to help you write better

There are a lot of online tools you can explore nowadays. They have time and speed up this entire process. My go-to tools are Grammarly and Copyscape.

18. Talk to other writers

Join a group of writers where you can share your ideas, but also issues. You are not the only one stuck in this situation.

19. Write something that’s been on your mind recently

Strat with recent events, things that have been bugging you for a long time. You would be surprised how easy it is to write about your thoughts.

20. Write something you can teach

Every person has a special talent, but not everyone is ready to share it with the rest of the world. In this case, tell people about your experiences and make them learn something from you.

21. Announce online that you’ll write every day.

Public pressure will motivate you to write more. Telling the entire world about your intentions will be enough to get you started.

22. Turn off your monitor and just start typing

This is a common trick many writers use. It will promote your habit of writing.

23. Read a story

Think of this as a brain exercise. Every time you take something to read, it will relax you additionally.

24. Reward yourself for writing

Your brain thrives on rewards. Think about your paycheck or bonus, once you complete the task. Imagine all the things you can do with that money.

25. Mix your day up

Live can be pretty dull if you are doing the same things. Try mixing your schedule. For instance, instead of writing in the morning, become a night owl.

26. Read inspirational quotes

Inspirational quotes are instant mood boosters. You can use them if you want to highlight a particular part of your story.

27. Get emotional

If you want your readers to feel the emotions, then you need to be able to transfer all your thoughts into writing. Think about difficult or happy situations in your life and draw inspiration from there.

28. Do something fun

Watch a funny movie, check YouTube video, hit the social networks, do anything that will entertain your mind.

29. Buy smiley stickers + calendar

Visit the local store and purchase these two items. So, every time you are writing put a sticker to mark the day.

30. Write yourself a little note for the next day

Writing is a challenging and mind-draining task. However, it feels nice to receive a short letter from yourself, telling you how great you are!

Conclusion

Once you review all these tasks, you will see how writing can be comfortable and relaxed. You may even add a couple of more steps, to boost your motivation.

Humans are individual creatures and what works for one, doesn’t mean it will work for another. That’s why you have to find the things that will inspire you and keep you going.

But for now, try exploring these steps. Many writers found them to be beneficial, so they should have the same effect on you.

Love Letters: How Writing Can Improve Relations With Your Partner

In this post, you are going to discover how, for example, writing love letters, could be a fountain that nourishes relationships. There is a reason why a student would want to hire assignment experts to help him or her complete school work. It is to say; they that have the muse, talent, and power to put words down on paper are capable of achieving anything through the art of writing.

Words cannot be undone. Think about it this way. Have you ever said something to someone you love that it hurt them so much but you never did realize how deep their hearts were wounded until the following morning? It happens and while sometimes people never plan to say things that pierce through the hearts of loved ones like a thousand knives, there are times when anger would drive one to make careless utterances, even in writing.

In love and hate, words have the power to wring tears even from the most hardened of hearts. On the flipside, words can soothe like breeze by the Seaside. You would want to relish in the moment of beautiful words till forever.  You may want to ask; why do people care so much about writing love letters even in this age of desktop publishing? Typed or handwritten, words have the power of making anyone fall in love. Just like a picture would speak a thousand words, words on paper have the power to speak to a million souls all at once and they could be so touching that everyone who read your piece would yearn for more.

Love of writing

Writers can speak many different languages of love in a single piece of literary composition.  Shakespeare’s sonnets and love quotes from Rome and Juliet, Merchant of Venice among other literary works by renowned authors who pour their souls on paper to paint the beautiful picture of love are sure-fire proofs that powerful words burn like eternal flames.  Some say the life of a writer is a solitude one and utterly boring.  They may be right. But in those very moments of silence and loneliness, words find their power to fly out of souls and into the world of readers.

So, does it mean those who love writing are capable of stemming relationships with their partners in the midst of raging storms of disagreements or fall-outs? Well, let’s find out how possible that could be.

Love letters: Improve your relationship the writer’s way

If you have ever fallen in love with a writer, you have fallen heads over shoulders with their words.  Love letters are as old as the hills but they set ablaze hearts in love. Writing can help improve your relationship in the following ways:

A direct expression of what the heart feels

Writing remains a timeless way of expressing thoughts, emotions, and feelings.  And when you connect this timeless truth with making amends with your partner through words on paper, there is no other better to put it. Words spoken from deep within the heart are those we express in literary composition. Every sense accompanies this craft to an extent that we feel completely immersed in writing apology letters than we would say sorry by word of mouth.

Writing touches the Soul

Stories behind some of the greatest songs ever written reek of soul ties with a craft that is now one of the best ways of influencing decisions and changing minds; writing.  If you dream of beautiful words, wake up and put them down on paper. Writing sweet lyrics for a loved one is perhaps a good explanation as to why musicians make men and women believe in the power of words.

Words literally lift the human soul to higher grounds and into spaces yonder.  The universe is made real by ink on paper. A make-believe craft that finds its way into resolving conflicts in relationships.  Tell her those sweet magical words and it will be enough to wipe her tears in times of disagreement. You may want to consider writing my paper help to test the waters using poems.

In all honesty, words are found

There are days when you will fear a relationship is on the rocks and if one cannot find their way around words, things could move from the frying pan into the sun. In all honesty, words are expressive of the deeper self.  And while writing love letters, words may look puffed up, but how else could one explain the feeling that cannot be expressed in deed?

Writing helps you discover a partner

As powerful as they are, words have exposed strengths and weakness of those with who we are in love.  Pouring your soul on paper is undoubtedly a good way of making worlds of fiction and reality meet.  Through it, you will find your partner.

Finally, it Bridges Long distance relationships

There are days when people in love become worlds apart, maybe because of circumstances. Love letters will help bridge the distance that threatens to tear apart relationships. They remain of epic beauty and appeal just as would roses presented to a loved one on a valentine’s day.

How to Empower Your Communication Through Writing

How often have you judged a person by the way he talks? How about the way he writes? Heck, if you’re a woman, you might even judge me now for not including “she” in my introductory sentences. You may think I’m a superficial writer and that reading this post would be a waste of time. You see how quickly judgments show up?

Most of us come across unpleasant situations which concern requests, business proposals, or even introductory emails that are poorly written.

Bad grammar, bad spelling, bad text structure – how do these people expect us to bear with such a terrible piece of text. How can they expect us to reply, accept a proposal, or do business with them, individuals that barely know how to write and speak?

Alright. Maybe my example was a bit exaggerated. However, most people don’t react well to bad communication through writing. It’s annoying, unwanted, and it could hurt your personal and professional reputation big time.

Well, in today’s post, you’ll learn several powerful ways to empower your communication through writing. Simply put, the simpler, easy-to-digest, and readable your written communication is the better your message will be understood and treated. Let’s get started.

1.    It’s Not About You

Let me say that one more time. It’s not about you. Got it? The ugly truth is that we’re mostly separated from each other. Egocentrism is at its peak, and the majority of people care only about themselves. Therefore, if whenever you write something, don’t talk about yourself.

In fact, you should use the word “I” as less as possible, and you should ensure that the main focus of your piece of text goes on the reader or the recipient. Developing the right mindset will get you far, especially in a world where people want to hear what’s in it for them.

2.    Develop Your Own Voice

Every author develops a voice. He does it in time, with consistent practice and with a lot of patience. Even though you may not plan to become a highly successful author, you should still try to develop your own’s writer voice.

For example, some people are extremely serious while writing, using formal words and only “acceptable” expressions. Some may joke around and transmit positivity through words all the time, some may be inspirational, or sad, or whatever. Find your voice so the messages you mean to send will be perceived and understood better.

3.    Write Short Sentences

Short sentences are key to great text readability. Use Hemingwayapp, a free online content tool that allows you to see how complicated your text is. The tool also highlights jargons and complicated words that could be replaced in order to make the text simpler.

Nevertheless, writing short sentences helps the reader process the information without having to turn back to read the sentence again. Therefore, this simple practice will improve the overall quality of your communication.

4.    Break the Text into Short Paragraphs

Always break your text into smaller and shorter paragraphs. Take a quick peek at this article. As you may see, I never allow more than 4 to 5 rows, then I separate them. I write 1 to 2 ideas on each subheading, then I go on to the next.

What does this do? Well, it makes the reader’s experience better, because his eyes won’t have to “work” to capture the information. Blocks of text (unbroken rows) are always disastrous when it comes to text readability, so ensure that you always avoid them.

5.    Reassess Your Text from Your Reader’s Perspective

Your readers may not have the same thinking, knowledge, and expertise as you do. Therefore, you may think that what you’re writing is definitely simple and understandable. But is it?

Step back and see your text from an objective point of view. Look for misunderstandings or complicated terms. Never put your reader into difficulty or you may just lose him!

6.    Proofread and Edit Your Text

Never hit the “Send’ button or never put that letter into the box before you proofread and edit. These things may sound obvious, and most of you are probably proofreading and editing your writings. Yet, my question to you is this: what is the process you use?

Do you simply read your text one more time, identify a few mistakes, edit them, and move on? This could work when you’re sending your text to someone “less important”. However, when your writing work gets into the hands of someone who may influence your future, exceptional proofreading and editing will save your skin most of the times!

I’d often check for the best paper writing service before turning in my most important academical assignments. I can’t tell you how many benefits this smart decision brought me every time. So. Bottom point is this…never send/turn in your texts before carefully ensuring that they’re well-written.

Conclusion

Improving your communication skills is one of the best things you can do to improve your overall experience here, as a human being. In this age of technology, we all write to communicate.

Whether you like it or not, you still have to write that essay, you still have to write that important email, that text message to your neighbor, and that important pitch your client. Put our tips into action, slowly and consistently, and soon enough you’ll notice significant results.
