Thinking Writing by Planning Ahead and Writing It Out the Moment You Have it in Mind
My previous hubs/articles like: “Writing: Guide to Better Writing, Writing: How To Get Ideas in Writing Good Articles, Writing: How To Make A Plan in Writing and Writing: How To Start Writing? are huge and very very helpful in every way in the world of writing.Now, planning your writing like I wrote in “Writing: How To Make A Plan in Writing” is essential to have a very high quality article.Writing that plan will be the first and most important in the writing process.This time, I want to impart my knowledge on how to write out that plan of yours, the moment you decide to write your plan out.This is a simple way to avoid this trouble: Write your plant out. Put down on paper the start, the main in-between stops, and the end.Only in this way can you be quite sure that you have a plan.Then, with your sketch in hand, you can go ahead and work out your piece of writing, step by step and without any danger of losing your way.That’s the way all speakers, lecturers, and writers work.
It’s the way we wrote this book, the book you’re reading now. We spent a long time in working out a plan before we started to write.Let’s see how it works. Let’s go back to the friend who doesn’t know how to get to your house.You sit down to write him (or her). Before you start your letter, you take another piece of paper and put down your plan.You think of the start, the main points on the way, and the end. So you write something like below.Sample note taking your plan:Take A2 bus at stationGet off corner Penn StreetWalk 2 blocks Valley AvenueTurn right into Pine StreetHouse is No. 188
Now that’s good, practical plan for you to use.Mind you, it wouldn’t do your friend much good.He would probably still get lost. But it helps you to tell him. As long as you stick to it, you will write directions that your friend can use – for example, like this:When you get off the train at the station, walk to the other side of the square. There is a bus stop in front of the bank building. Take the A2 bus. If you have to wait awhile, don’t get impatient; the bus runs every 20 minutes.Get off the bus at the third stop after the bridge, corner Valley Avenue and Penn Street. You will see an G and J store and a gas station at this corner. Watch out for them after you cross the bridge.From Pine Street walk two blocks ahead on Valley Avenue, that is, in the direction where the bus is going. The next corner is Maple Street and the second is Chestnut, where we live…You see how easy it is to work it out, once you have a good plan to go by.Giving directions is, of course, only one example. the same applies if you want to tell a story – let’s say about a week end you spent at your cousin’s.Again, be sure to put the event one after the other, in order.More Writing Articles:
