These contents are very useful in modern days because people like to take the helps of internet medium in taking knowledge about any difficult or easy subjects. As these categories of contents are mainly based on the elaboration of poetry, prose or other kinds of literary matters, so the deep knowledge can be gathered by such texts.

The Style and Substance Writing Mystique

Readers often wonder what good writing is all about and maybe think that it is no big deal. When you read Time magazine or even Newsweek, nothing strikes you as quite extraordinary. Perhaps the political slant may seem startling but that was the newsworthy stories and not the writing itself. We do admire the skill of writers in literature when the pages reflect seemingly impossible to document feelings and emotions, the purple prose and the like.

What is a good piece of writing? Perhaps the phrase ‘style and substance’ sums it all up. Content wise or the substance part of it should be pithy enough. Without appropriate matter, the best of writing would seem to be quite superfluous. The best substance, of course, would differ according to whether it is political, social, religious, and satirical or amusement. Why do millions flock to humor sites like Cracked.com? Perhaps they do combine the two elements well.

Most good writing includes a bit of personal experience besides the humor element. Excessive seriousness would destroy even the best of writing intentions. The ‘I’ often makes a great difference and brings in life to an otherwise drab piece of writing yet research writing shuns it. Since information is often the reason writing exists at all in a range of subjects as diverse as commerce and philosophy, make sure adequate quantities of up to date researched information is included. Names of people and places do spice up writing at the very mention.

Media has nowadays caught up with the age old practice of including pictures and videos along with the text. Consider YouTube as an outstanding example. A good grammar book besides a thesaurus and a style directory would all be essential tools to hammer out a good piece of writing. The plan is essential of course and the usual how, who, what, where, when and why approach is even taught in primary school. Drafting, rewriting and finally editing your own work is crucial to reach that streamlined phase of tight expression with no unnecessary words.

The Expression would be so markedly different between business writing and creative writing. British and American English have their differences too, but finally it is a happy marriage of style and substance, ideas and meanings besides sentence making and practice. Enjoy the ride!

How to develop writing skill

If you are already doing a job like in banking or teaching but have an avid interest in writing and working from home due to family constraints or health problems, writing could be an initial part timeactivity. The job provides connections that you could exploit to further the writing career and even do a short course by correspondence or online to sharpen the lessons you learned way back in school. Mental preparation is very important. You do realize of course that the immense possibilities of writing online is a gift of the internet that developed as recently as the 1990s though print media has ruled maybe for two centuries in some form.

Besides, art and culture like drama and cinema heavily depend upon writing skills. Writing is basically a lonely activity unless you belonged to a group and that is feasible too within a like minded circle. Who are your best friends? The dictionary and thesaurus of course though the scenario has changed electronically. With software, maybe e-books haunt your consciousness now that online publishing wields a great deal of clout.

Are you sure you are a genuine writer in which case you have a portfolio of published writings as recommendation?

After you have clarified the intimate questions deep in the soul, it is time to set up office preferably in a separate room to avoid the clutter of family life and howling children. Desk and chair, computer and printer, telephone etc. They all require expense. Where will the budget come from? Does the family approve? Would you sustain the write passion through the months and years or is it merely a passing fad? Are you familiar with computers and the internet, word processing software and the writing scenario?

Do you know the niches like finance, politics, sports, business and entertainment? Writing for newsletters, websites, white papers, copy writing, blogs and annual reports would become part of the paraphernalia.

Are you willing and prepared? A word about deadlines! Like the newspaper and media industry that you witness daily, harsh deadlines squeeze in every little bit of energy you possess. Nobody seems to wait in an over busy world and clients would be screaming through the phone and social media for your submissions. Then could come several rewrites of your labored over piece. It may all be satisfying in the end but at considerable expense of time and energy besides ideas of course. Join this writing business or writing universe  if you will!
