A Tip for Article Writing

Article Writing:  Why write articles?  There is a market for articles, today like never before.  For one, website owners need articles to keep readers coming back and to keep their sites optimized.  

People read articles every day.  Articles are usually informational or inspirational.    They often give a reader a new perspective.  Simply reading an article can enlighten a person.  It can change their focus!

Do you want to be an article writer? 

On one of the sites I sell articles as a ghost writer is Constant-Content.com.  One of the rules is to show at least a third of our article to potential buyers prior to purchase.  Some writers have gone even further, showing the full article to potential buyers. 

A hesitant print writer I know, asked me if I was not afraid of article theft.  By putting it available for sight, it could easily be snatched.  Of course, that chance is always there.  And, yes, I have had articles stolen, unfortunately.

My answer to her, however, was that I have so many new articles in me and ways to re-write an existing article that I don't fear.  I take the chance.  I regret time spent only to have either the article not sell or become stolen, but this is a risk I'm willing to take.

Once you're an up-to-speed writer you too can re-write the same article and potentially sell it more than once.   Now, I'm not talking about cheap article spinning methods where you flip things around for the sake of flipping them around--sometimes with a spinning program.  What I mean is, re-writing it from a different angle.

Here is an example:


Sample article on writing fiction:

Want to write a novel?  Need new ideas?  Put yourself in the story.  Picture where you'd like to go, what you'd like to see.  How might you see things differently than another person?

Same article re-written:

Are you in the midst of writing a novel and find yourself stuck?  Why not use this trick.  Dress yourself in the era of your novel and walk its streets or corridors.  That's right, put yourself right in there.  Smell, hear, taste and see the environment.  Write about your experience.

Same article re-written:

Fiction writers have various ways of developing their work.  Many writers like to put themselves right into the story.  Once they've got an idea of the era and surroundings, they find it helpful to think about what they might see, where they'd want to go, what they'd like to do.
