Having finalised your plan now it’s time to get down to the writing. The 3 previous steps (What are you writing?; Are you working to a deadline?; and Plan your writing) may be very quick if you’re doing it all yourself.
When you’re writing you will have your own style or ‘voice’ but spare a thought for your intended readers. Who are they? Does your style need to be a bit more formal. Your style will also be determined by the intended media through which it will be published.
So, your style and voice for a formal report or tender will be different to social media or website content.
If, for whatever reason, you feel you lack confidence in your own writing ability, and you’re not alone here, then help is at hand. You can ask a professional copy/content writer to help you.
They have the skills, experience and the time to turn your required writing into a style most appropriate for your situation. They will probably take a fraction of the time that you, and your staff, would spend and maybe fret over, and as a result the cost of such an expert will probably be a fraction of the cost of you and your staff. Not only are you saving time and money but you’re also getting back the time to spend on other business-related activities.
When you’re writing just let your creative juices flow. Leave any editing until your pen has run dry (if you’re writing long-hand) or your fingers have given up the ghost.
You’re now ready to have your document checked. Next up in the series – How do you check your writing?
