An article is a piece of writing which can be non-fictional, a story, a report, or even a poem. It can cover different topics.
To write an article, you can follow the following steps;
• Firstly, you have to come up with an idea about the topic you want to write about. This is where you put your imagination to good use. As I said earlier, an article can be about just anything so you have a wide range of options to choose from.
• When that is done and you’ve decided on the topic of discussion, you then have to come up with a suitable and attention-catching title for it. The title should be intriguing.
If your topic of discussion is a nonfictional story, make sure the title is doesn’t give too much insight about the story as This makes people curious, and therefore, they will be interested in your article.
• When that is done, you then need to pour out the content of the article. “The body”. If you want to write a long article, make sure you are well-equipped with the knowledge about the topic you are writing about. This does not mean that you should copy someone else’s work. That would be plagiarism. At the end of the content, end on a good note. If the article is to be continued another time, indicate to it.
• At this stage, your work should be 95% complete. What is left for you to do is to edit or format your work. This is where you add pictures, change the font or its size, and clip arts. Just make it look presentable as much as possible for the reader.
Now, your article is complete and ready for publication. I hope this helps you on your journey to writing a perfect article. Thank you.
