- The opening – A creative piece of writing has the best weapon—an attention grabbing opening. Start your story in a way, so that it drags your readers into reading it fully. A good way of starting your writing is starting it with the flashbacks. Or you can also start with a conversation between two people. The opening of your story or the article should really be intriguing.
- Write like a professional – It does not matter if you are new or a beginner. Always write like it’s your job. Keep yourself in a state of mind where you feel like you’re working for someone. Set up a deadline for you. Keep reminding yourself that you need to get the job done.
- Editing – Your piece of writing needs editing. And you have to accept the fact that your first trial is a load of crap. Trust me; no one makes it perfect one on the first go.
