Five Simple TIPS for a Strong 2paragraphs Article
1) Choose your title first. The title helps define what you’re writing about. Then just stick to your subject. (If your title is “Monopoly Is The Best Game Ever” that’s exactly what you’ll write about.)
2) Introduce with information. Example: “Monopoly tunes 80 this year.” Or: “Jennifer Lopez is a fine actor and singer, but as a dancer she was among the greats. Her dance career…”
3) If you assert something, back it up with facts. For instance if you assert: “In some ways Nora Roberts is as important an American author as Herman Melville.” Try to back it up:
“Let’s look at the numbers: there are currently 400 million copies of Nora Roberts’ books in print. Melville’s Moby Dick, according to some sources, sold just 500 copies of its first printing. Melville has sold many copies since, of course. His books, unlike Roberts’, are also taught in high schools and colleges. But which author’s popularity reveals more about our current culture?”
Add links that back up your claims. Links make your points stronger, and allow your readers to have the same sense of discovery you’ve had. Below are two links (to the books’ sales figures) mentioned in the example above. Put links like these in your article!
4) Have fun! Tell people things they might not have known. Or try to bring interesting things together in ways people may not have put them together before. (For example, Nora Roberts and Melville.)
5) Share your articles on FB or by email or however you share. Make your 2paragraphs a conversation starter. Good luck! Go ahead–publish 100 of them. Take on the world, 2paragraphs at a time.
