Effective Writing

You are a writer. If you are a college student, a boss, a job applicant, entertainer, or a parent, the fact is: you write. You can be an independent business entity looking for a government grant, or a corporate advance or loan, you must submit a proposal to get the resources you are looking for. The difference between having your proposal overlooked  or acknowledged and granted, is going to rely on the effectiveness of your writing. Also, if you write for leisure, you surely plan for an audience, and you need to make the most impactful impression that you can, in order to be noticed as a sustainable writer.

If you are writing for profession or leisure, you’ll need the right tools to become and effective writer.

Non-Fiction Literature

You’re not running a campaign, so you don’t need to please your reader. You need to more so, convey your expertise of the topic you are writing. The phrase I created, in a poetic literature, “When your scripts [be] tender to touch, you can lose what you wanted so much”, alludes to how a lack of confidence in your expressions can affect the reception of your audience. If you are a writer, the audience needs to be the reader, and not a contender for the knowledge or information you are conveying. Therefore, writing your facts with confidence and allowing no room for rebuttal can capture more of an audience than petitioning for their patronage with cliche standards and per capita views. If you write in your free time, you most likely are not writing for the purpose of becoming a famed author, yet you are scribing information to a reader. Especially if you are writing persuasive non-fiction, you need to be solidified in your stance. Discrediting an opposition can be a tactic you employ for the purpose of capturing your reader to being a loyalist to your view. So you know why you are writing, to convey information, and you need to know the biggest blunder most writers make. The biggest mistake non-fiction writers make is trying to be a friend of their readers. As a non-fiction writer, I do not want to be your friend. The purpose of a current non-fiction book I’m writing is to, arouse your suspicion of my targets, and to reassure my self of what I already know by gaining your allegiance as a reader. Surely after reading my book, whether you agree with the morality of my content, you will have known what I was saying was reasonable and coherent.

Do not be overlooked, write your proposals effectively.


Common knowledge agrees that an enticing introduction is an attention getter. I’m going to talk to you about what really appeals to the proposal recipients. You may think the corporate world is filled with people who are very busy and don’t have the time to review your proposals, or emails. The fact is that people are paid salaries to review your emails and written proposals, exclusively. First impressions do matter, and you do want to make sure that you are perceived as being concise and to the point. Acknowledgement and flattery are two different things, so concise when acknowledging someones accomplishments, be brief, and present yourself to be a capable partner more than a fan. You want to almost immediately state what your intentions are in the beginning of your script. If not, the person may only skim the proposal that took you several hours or days to write. If you are not an accomplished professional, you cannot present advantageous credentials. In today’s world of easy access to large commercial brokers, credentials shine brighter than lofty dreams. So, if you cannot say you developed a plan to profit your company 60% in the last two quarters of the year, then do not hesitate to tell your potential benefactor how he can profit from you. Being upfront about why you are the best and most profitable candidate, and your proposal may be granted in quick time. Flowery wording can be unbecoming to a person with a busy schedule, so being concise, yet informative is a strategy for effective writing.
