Of course it is that last part that is the hard part and we have all had the experience of being forced to read excruciating writing because it contained information we needed to extract, or because we were obliged to say something about it for a school report or other learning exercise. So writers need to develop some basic writing skills to make sure they keep their audience reading or listening right to the end – and leaving happy. Share this video: https://youtu.be/syuwXYpV4zA Some people divide writing into creative and technical styles, with creative writing being designed to entertain and technical writing to inform. While that division is true enough, it hides that fact that in the end it is all writing. You can’t inform someone of something if the writing is so bad the reader cannot bring themselves to read it through. No matter what the goal of your writing, it all has to be created in your mind and written down, so it is all creative writing in the end. So let’s look at what writing skills and creative writing techniques are used by writers to produce writing that a reader or listener will enjoy. At the top of the list has to be the basics of language. Using correct grammar and spelling for your audience is essential. That doesn’t mean always writing in the same way however. Writers first need to decide if they be using American or British English. American readers become confused when confronted with British spelling or expressions and British readers just get upset by what they see as the ‘Americanisation’ (notice that ‘s’) of their language. So consider your audience and set your proofing language accordingly! Are you writing a formal or informal piece? The first of our creative writing tips is to use sentence-structures and word-choices that suit the purpose of your writing. Nowhere is this more important than in script writing. The way we speak is not the way we write, so for script writing, think how it is going to sound when spoken. Speak the words and see if they sound like natural speech, or just someone reading out loud. Capturing the spoken word in fiction is even harder and one of the writing skills writers should develop is listening. How do people really speak? What kinds of sentences do they use and how do they change depending on their audience? Good script writing should capture the nature flow of speech, even if it means using repetition or hesitations. This is the way people often naturally speak. A special kind of script writing is the preparation of notes for an impromptu presentation – these are known as writing prompts. Some speakers just like to see a summary of their key points, while others like full sentences they can use, or change to suit the moment. The second of our creative writing tips is to keep your sentences short and simple when writing prompts, since the user needs to be able to grasp the point in a quick glance. Now for the last of our creative writing tips – always choose language that is appropriate to your audience. Nothing stops reading or listening faster than a lot of big words the audience doesn’t understand. Experts have a tendency to absorb their specialized vocabulary and abbreviations so well they then assume everyone knows what they are talking about. Use specialized words sparingly, if at all, and always be sure to give a brief explanation or use them in a way that shows their meaning. You shouldn’t leave your audience discombobulated – wait a minute, what was that?

http://www.engvid.com The paragraph is the most important unit of a well-written essay. The paragraph has a specific structure and standards that make it effective and enjoyable to read. In this writing lesson we will look at how to construct good paragraphs and improve writing with better flow and clarity. After the lesson, take the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/writing-skills-paragraph/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, welcome again to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about the paragraph. It's a writing lesson, and I want to show people what a paragraph is and how to construct one, what to do, what not to do so you can write very clear, very tight paragraphs. This is especially important for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students but everybody has to follow the exact same rules. Now before I even begin, I must say that I'm talking mostly about academic writing or even business writing. Creative writing like novels or short stories, anything fiction, you can do anything you want. Only always remember: somebody has to read what you wrote so it has to be clear. But academic essays, for example, certain rules you have to follow; you have to be very careful about them. So let's begin. In terms of like the actual way a paragraph looks: you have to indent or skip a line. So let me just make sure you understand what an indent is. This is an indent, the first line a little bit pushed in or you can make sure you skip a line between paragraphs. But don't do both. If you skip a line, don't indent. Okay? That's the main thing. Now, that's in terms of the way it looks. In terms of content -- and this, I can't stress this enough -- very, very, very important: one central idea in one paragraph. Okay? I've seen many people, I've seen many essays where you start a paragraph talking about one thing, and then you go off on a tangent and talk about something completely unrelated. So for example: if you start a paragraph and you're talking about apples, continue to talk about apples. If you go to oranges, that's maybe okay because you're still talking about fruit. But if you start with apples, go to oranges, go to bananas, and then end up with monkeys in space there's a bit of a problem; the reader has no idea what you're talking about. One paragraph, one central idea. Now, make sure that you tell the reader what this central idea is. This is your thesis statement. Okay? It's a very general sentence. All it does is introduce the topic of the paragraph, nothing else. All the details comes after. So speaking of details, we'll talk about details in detail, but all other ideas, all the other sentences, all your sentences with the details must directly relate back to the main idea. So let's say here is your thesis statement; very general, every sentence after must relate back to that thesis statement. Okay? You can't go off to another idea. Everything must support this, must talk about the same topic. Very important. Okay? How long should your paragraph be? Technically, a paragraph could be one sentence, but in an academic essay that rarely happens. But it could be any length you want, as long as you're still on that one topic, as long as you still have things to write and things to say about that topic, say it. If you have four sentences, fine; if you have 10 sentences, also okay. Again, for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students: four, five sentences should be your limit. You can't be too long because you don't have time and you're going to start making mistakes. So now, the details. Very important to have lots of details. Why is this topic important to your overall idea of your essay? Not only tell me what is the topic, what is the thesis statement of the paragraph, make sure you explain to me why this is important to the general idea of the essay. Give me your reasons. Now, why is it important? And then reasons, why you think what you're saying supports this idea. Examples, always use examples because giving me the reasons is okay; examples make me see exactly what you're trying to say. Very easy for me to understand what you're trying to say. Now, in terms of flow, in terms of the way the reader can approach the paragraph, you have to have bridges. What is, what do bridges mean? Basically, when you have one idea in this sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence. Every sentence must have a link to the next sentence. This creates flow, makes it much easier to read and understand, and it keeps you on the one topic. Now, key terms. If you're talking about something specific and you have to use a key term, use it as many times as you need to. Otherwise, avoid repetition. Try not to use the same word more than once in one paragraph. Okay? For example: if you're using the word "moreover" in the paragraph, don't use it, don't use "moreover" again -- use "in addition to", use "furthermore", "another", etc. Try to avoid using one word more than once, especially in the same paragraph.
