SubmitYourArticle.com’s Top Editing Tips For Clear, Concise and Action-Oriented Articles
The SubmitYourArticle.com blog post reveals the top tips for editing an article which is clear, consice and action-orientated.
York, UK - SubmitYourArticle.com’s blog says that it is important to note that proofreading is different from editing and that the editing process comes before the proofreading.
Editing is about re-writing and rearranging sentences and paragraphs. Proofreading is reading over the nearly finished article to correct issues such as spelling and grammar.
As the SubmitYourArticle.com blog states, “If you think of writing articles like doing surgery, the editing is the part where the doctor is doing the “inside work”, whereas the proofreading is the part where he’s suturing things back up and making them neat and tidy on the outside.”
SubmitYourArticle.com provides editing tips to help create clear, concise and action oriented articles:
Initially, it is best to organize the information in the article into a logical order. This seems obvious but it plays a very large role in how easy an article is to understand. The paragraphs should have a definite order – an opening paragraph, supporting paragraphs and the concluding paragraph.
Ensure that things are stated as clearly as possible and that the words used and the way they are written clearly communicate the concepts. Read through the article looking for issues of clarity, and check to see if there is a better way that it could be written.
Be active, rather than passive.
The SubmitYourArticle.com post says, “Most English teachers will tell you that an active sentence is stronger than one that is passive. When you state things using an active voice, the subject of the sentence is doing the action. When you state things using a passive voice, the subject of the sentence is having something done to it.”
It is also important to write in plain English. Whilst it may be tempting to impress a reader with an elaborate vocabulary or unique terminology, the best articles are the ones that help people and are easy to understand. Try to keep an article free of industry jargon and words that most people aren’t familiar with. It’s a good idea to take the “simpler is better” approach with article writing.
