Things to keep in mind while writing a piece

People generally undermine the importance of writing, but it is imperative to have good writing skills if one wishes to excel in their professional world. People usually have the notion that it is important to speak well as it is what makes the first impression. But nothing can replace the importance of possessing good writing skills.

Writing replies, sending mails, preparing proposals, writing applications etc are a few things that are expected while one is working. Assistant managers, probationary officers, clerks in public sector banks, MBAs, CAs etc- all these professionals at some point or another are expected to correspond through written communication. Therefore, it is vital to build on your writing skills. Here are a few points to keep in mind while planning to write a piece-

  • Brevity is the key – Tight, concise and factually complete pieces are the ones that are easy to read. Whereas long, complicated and unorganized communication must be avoided. Do not waste words to explain information that can easily be dealt in a few words.
  • Keep your sentences crisp – Do not write sentences that are unnecessarily long. Write sentences that are short. The trick in writing grammatically correct sentences is to write sentences that are short. The more you complicate the sentences, more are the chances of grammatical mistakes.
  • Watch your tone – Your written communication must be such that sets the mood of the reader. If it is persuasive communication, the thought and feelings must come across in the same tone. If it is a strict statement, the reader must understand the gravity of the situation.
  • Keep it structured – Whatever form of writing you are planning on, first prepare a rough structure of the same. Once you are through with preparation of the blueprint, then proceed on to writing your communication. An unstructured piece makes reading difficult and often important information gets lost in the entire literary piece.
  • Stick to the topic – In the process writers usually get carried away and divert from the main topic. Therefore, while writing any form of communication for example an essay or a formal application, strictly stick to the topic. Avoid going astray from the topic.

We hope that the next time you sit to pen down any piece; you will keep all the above pointers in mind for technically correct pieces.

All the best!
