Writers are always at a loss for words. Sometimes they just won’t come even if you know your subject. Some things are hard to put into understandable words.
Good writing is brought about by a dedicated writer putting in time to research a subject, assemble the facts and put together an article that is accurate, correct, it also must be understandable and relevant and enjoyable for the public to read.
We must remember that we have an audience to play to, same as if we were putting on a stage play. We must write our article so that at the end we get a standing ovation. That is what we must try for with every article we write or poem we publish.
One problem might be that doing the research might be so interesting that we become sidetracked, and waste a lot of time that does not apply to getting the information needed for the article.
Once we decide on a subject for our article or poem we need to find the subject matter. With poetry once you have a theme it will come from within, that’s why I am not a poet, I can’t make anything rhyme. You can look on the Internet and find several poetry tutors, and other tutorials for about any subject. All you have to do is enter your key words in the search engine of your choice. Pushes enter and it will do the rest, provided you have entered your search item correctly. Did you spell it right? If it’s a long phrase is the punctuation correct?
The information that comes up is what you asked for, or nearly. If it doesn’t suit you, do another search, change the wording a little and the results maybe different and maybe just what you want. Also you can try different search engines, sometimes you get different results.
Using the search engines and researching your subject is only one way to ensure your article is accurate and up to date. The other thing you can use is personal knowledge, personal knowledge comes from experience and that is good, nothing is better than firsthand experience. Another place you can get good information is from someone else’s experience.
But when all is said and done you are the one who makes or breaks, the article, it’s all in how your put the words together and make them flow into an article, that determines whether it is readable and will get you that standing ovation that you deserve.
