Don’t make it more complex by adding a lot of hard and difficult words so that reader give up reading, try to stay in-between. Not to plain and not too hard. Goal is to make common reader understand what your topic is all about in good vocabulary.

For example, if you are writing an article on disease, you will cover its symptoms, its spread ratio and its mechanism in paragraphs.

  • Develop the art of writing:

Good article writers contain this art of writing, on which they would write two simple sentences and they would blow up the reader because it would be written so beautifully while covering all the aspects too. You need to be very well-aware about the topic, you are going to write on.

While ending the article is where most people get troubled. Starting an article and writing is much easy then ending it in a good way. Therefore, you need to leave end note on the end of your article in which you cover all of the things that your readers have understood from your article.

After writing your article, you need to read your draft multiple times. Proof reading your article is very important until it is totally perfect. Check for grammatical mistakes and make the article look more interesting by adding substantial information at the end.
