9 Qualities of Good Writing

9 Qualities of Good Writing | Keyboarding for Students | Scoop.it

There are two kinds of people: Those who think they can write, and those who think they can’t. And, very often, both are wrong. The truth is, most of us fall somewhere in the middle. We are all capable of producing good writing....

 

Words matter. Your words (what you say) and style (how you say it) are your most cherished (and undervalued) assets.

 

Yet, so often, they are overlooked. Think of this way: If a visitor came to your website without its branding in place (logo, tagline, and so on), would he or she recognize it as yours? Are you telling your story there from your unique perspective, with a voice and style that’s clearly all you?

 

Here, in no particular order, is what I’ve learned about the necessary qualities of good writing (or content, in our digital vernacular), based on my own 25 years’ working as a writer and editor… and even longer career as a reader....

Sarah Yarborough's curator insight, March 6, 2014 6:01 PM

I really liked this article about writing. It was very reminicent of almost every article we've read so far, along with the various chapters in They Say, I Say. It talks about how good writers support what they are saying with plenty of data, which is something we all need to make sure of in our research essays. I also like how it says that good writing comes in the rewrite, similar to the idea behind the shitty first draft article. All of these ideas and "secrets" behind how to write successfully are ones we've discussed in class- it's just a matter of actually implementing them into our papers.

Forrest z. Tappan's curator insight, March 11, 2014 8:41 PM

I completely agree with Sarah. This article hold so many compilations to what we have been reading for class, especially in They Say, I say. I have been told many times and have grown accustomed to  believing that for every equation you add to a paper, you loss half of your readers. This is very evident if you look at the more popular articles and book. However it time I veer away from that mind set and start thinking like a research paper writer. This article has giving me some very good tips on how to rethink the way i write for this course. Specifically, Ann--the author-- make  a point that writing should be simple but not simplistic. Being more of a creative writer LOVE to confuse my readers with fancy words and alliteration and what have yous, but Ann stats that this is just not appropriate. I look forward to using what iv learned in my work.

Just what makes good writing? These are some key points that will help the novice get on their way to becoming a better writer for sure.

Since we use technology so much these days we might as well just do these as well.
