A Tip for Writers...

    Here's one very simple tip to become a more compelling writer...


    Now, by provocative I don't mean antagonize people or go for aimless insults; I mean give your REAL opinion and express yourself unfiltered.

    People are so used to reading written content with all the rough-edges sanded down that it will feel refreshing, engaging and provocative.

    By this, I don't mean be sloppy or careless with thoughts, I just mean do not censor yourself, let your personality shine and think of the writing as a conversation between you and the reader; think about when you're discussing something with a friend... if you're passionate about something - you're usually both trying to provoke each other on some level to make a strong point, to get a reaction. Do this in your writing.

    Don't reword and rewrite yourself endlessly to come across as liberal and all-encompassing as possible; it may be popular, but it's boring.

    Whether they like you for it or not, people like to be challenged. It's far more fun to read an article that thrusts a new perspective or puts into question everything the reader currently thinks than it is to pat everybody on the back and pretend all opinions are equal.

    Be vocal, be bold and don't be afraid of 'controversial' views. Court them.

    Conversational ethos + literary nuance + irony + challenging views = great writing.

    PS. please check-out blog.baycrazy.com for some of MY great writing :)

    Thank you, peace yo.

    The topic is great, but I think only people that wrote something understand it.

    Being your self and expressing what you think ... that is a complicated process, even for, to install in the people I work with.
    People get it hard that others really look for a different perspective in a conversation. Saying what you think is appropriate to say in that topic ... well that is not you and people notice that in a subconscious level.

    I'd say when you find yourself writing something that grips you, you're surely on the right track. Hope this helps somebody.
