Edit Writing Errors

 

If you learn to edit writing errors for your content articles, you will keep your reader focused on the key idea of your topic. Learn to lock in your reader and hold their attention. Realizing your writing mistakes may help you edit past articles and improve them going forward. Read on for some specific errors to look for that may be responsible for faulty writing habits.

To start editing writing errors look for off track thoughts in your article paragraphs. Choosing a single main idea for each paragraph will capture your audience's attention and encourage them to read on. Your introduction should be descriptive enough to spark interest with your reader with not too much information. Each paragraph should back up your introduction.

Every paragraph should be able to relate to the title, or main idea of the article. Each step should be parallel to the byline. If you cannot see a connection, you are off the topic and have wondered into off topic idea areas which will totally confuse the reader. Get back to your topic to avoid writing errors and keep your reader interested in your subject.

In learning to edit writing errors, don't ramble on and on. If you ramble on, your main idea will get lost. It will become pointless. Stick to the important things related to the topics. Don't just use filler sentences to create content. This will only water down your key ideas.

Don't be repetitive. State your idea or your point that you have to say and leave it alone. Stating the same thing two or three times over in the same paragraph will cause you to lose your audience completely. This is a common error in writing. You may feel that you are delivering your point several times to emphasize it, but it comes off as a poor writing habit.

Don't lecture! Lectures are boring, not exciting. New food for thought is much more compelling for your content article. Steer towards the fresh ideas or a new angle to a great old idea to keep your audience captivated.

Keep in mind when you edit writing errors, If you're not sure that the information in the content of your article is correct, don't publish it. Research any information you're not sure of. Your reader trusts you, and if you are irresponsible with your topic, it will catch up to you. Don't make this writing error, as you will lose your credibility.

Good advice. I often write on the spur of the moment and need to edit when I look back.Editing as I try to improve my writing seems part of the whole process.

Good points, we are all guilty of being in a hurry to put the article up. If only we left it until the next day we would often see our errors more clearly.

This is so true. If we wish to be regarded as credible writers we can't misuse our main tools: words. I find more mistakes when I print out my draft and read it from the paper. Still, some errors slip by. :(
