People who want to write, whether it's a scholarly essay or a fiction, often confused to begin with. Though illustration of the idea has been obtained. Be it a clear idea or still be a faint picture. Here will be given tips for starting a writing activities. If you already have a clear theme, then it will be better. However, this method can also be used if you still have a vague idea about an idea. I named this kind of this writing learning is brainstorming writing learning.
Brainstorm Your Idea
Write down everything you think of in a paragraph. Everything you think of, including eg chatter by friends which was annoying. Or suppose you aggravation of not being able to write a single word. Or pieces of fried chicken for dinner which snatched by a neighbor's cat. Write down all of them, do not hesitate. After you read this article in full, you will know what I mean by this. Postpone all your critical mind until you have read the whole text.
Once you have enough to make a paragraph, then choose a sentence in the first paragraph. Write the words you choose it in the first sentence of the second paragraph. Then develop your writing in other sentences. Do not be afraid if the sentences are not related to each other. Keep writing and explores themes that have begun to find. The theme will appear more clearly. In the second paragraf, act like when you wrote the first paragraph. Write down what comes to your mind.
After that, re-select a sentence in the second paragraph to be in the opening sentence of the third paragraph. Do it like when making the first and second paragraphs. And so on so you can make the text more or less intact. Intact here is the writing that has been exploring themes or ideas that you want.
Re-writing and Editing
After that, rewrite the first paragraph and the second by considering compliance with a theme or idea that you create. You can also create new sentences to further clarify the idea that you create. Consider the plot and adjust constantly to the theme. If necessary, you can make examples to clarify the intent of writing. Then proceed with the editing, check writing errors and punctuation. It would be better if you do the editing after you make finished article.
So a few of which have ever carried out when practicing writing. I strongly believe that this is also an effective way for you to begin learning to write. I myself have written a novel after a long practice to express their ideas in this way. The novel was then I presented in English in my another web. I hope, writing is no longer something that is hard to do. And do not forget, practice of make perfect. The more you practice, the more quality writing that you can create.
