Are there really “secrets” to writing, as all those books and articles continually promise? Or is developing English writing skills just a function of experience?
While there are particular skills and techniques that can help you turn out better copy, they’re not secret. In fact, they’re freely available from here and other sites that frequently discuss language training.
To become a better English writer, there are three things you need to do:
1. Read widely
2. Write often
3. Improve on one area at a time
That’s it and none of those things are secret. If you become a wide reader, you can see further and deeper into topics. You gain familiarity with a greater amount of vocabulary, along with specific writing styles and ways of expression. Most of the time, you end inheriting many of the traits of the materials you peruse, developing both the quality of your thoughts and your artistic temperament.
When you write often, you train your mind to work through the craft, the same way runners train their bodies by putting themselves through the pace. Just as you developing singing talent partaking in the activity, you train your writing instincts by engaging in it.
If you write enough times, it’s not unusual to improve naturally. However, making the conscious decision to see gains in a particular area usually serves to speed up the process. As such, be open to criticism, learn from them and always strive to improve a facet of your overall ability. Similarly, don’t shy away from using tools, such as language software, to help you on your path.
Your Use Of English Affects Your Bottom Line
Whether you’re an American company that use English as your main vernacular or a foreign organization who needs to communicate with the rest of the world, a good grasp of the English language will affect your bottom line. Regardless of your feelings about it, English remains as the international language of business. As such, making sure that your business is well-equipped to communicate in it can create massive improvements in your year-end numbers.
1. Good English can increase sales. All businesses need a regular influx of new customers to remain competitive. If your marketing strategy includes producing English materials in any shape or form, your pitch will need to be written well enough to be able to persuade. The better your writing is, the stronger the connection you can potentially foster with your prospects, eventually leading to higher sales.
2. Good English boosts your business’ credibility. Businesses will need to always put their best foot forward in order to maintain their credibility. When you foster clear communication with your customers and the industry at large, it enhances your image in a way that will leave an indelible impression on people. It announces that you pay attention even to the littlest detail and you strive for excellence in all facets of your business.
Any organization that needs to use English, whether for internal or external purposes, should take the time to equip their employees with the necessary skill to communicate with it at a professional level. That means providing them with opportunities to train (e.g. grammar classes, language learning software) as well as equipping them with necessary tools (e.g. grammar checkers) to help them achieve proficiency.
