This will show you some steps to writing a good article.
First – Come up with a topic that you feel passionately about. Something that you know you can write a lot about without really having to a take a long time.
Secondly – Plan out what you are going to express, explain. What I do for this step is pick 3 or so main ideas and stick with them throughout the whole entire article. This helps you stay on topic and not get too carried away.
Thirdly – Focus, as you write your article. This includes not being distracted as this can lead away from your train of thought and in turn your writing performance will not be the best.
For example, if I wanted to write a good article about animals: I would first come up with a topic that is close to me like dogs for example. I would then, plan out my steps and what I want to talk about. For instance, dogs are very companion like, and they can be just like a best friend. They also provide security and express their unconditional love to you at all times. After I have planned out what I am going to talk about I would focus. I would clear my mind completely and think about nothing but dogs as write/type out my article!
Trust me, with this advice writing articles will be just that much easier.
