The translation of human experience into an artful literary presentation is the art of writing. Writing is a careful craft that follows certain literary techniques. While writing, you go miles away with your imagination, you can transform reality into a fantasy world, you can meet exciting characters. But a story won’t come out of the blue, it takes previous planning. You can have a very good idea, but you need to put your mind in order.
In writing, editing is of course essential to the overall success and professionalism of your work. At this point, you may need a professional help to find out errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure. A professional copy editor or text editor will also determine whether the content relates appropriately to the readership, genre and purpose of the work. As for fiction story, plot, pace, characterization, and dialogue are also considered. While for non-fiction, you need to ensure that the facts are used effectively throughout, concepts are developed adequately, and material is well organized.
You need to make sure that your writing ideas will be delivered clearly when it gets to readers’ hands. Give readers a clear and concise article. Whether your work is fiction or non-fiction, at the end of the day your final task is to ensures that the story-line and message of your piece will be understood by the reader with a renewed sense of clarity and impact.
Look, and know me in this horrid age
When I’m drunk, asleep, or in my rage
Speak to the unknowing world
For how this thing came about
So I scream for my desire
Let this age set me on fire
Let the heat tie me on wire
For I never be again a liar
Then I looked up; my time is past
All saw books are in the past
So I keep my mind saved in mirth
And remote all pangs of the world
