How to get better at writing and editing your journal

  • July 16, 2021

article article By now, you know how much it’s been frustrating to not have your journal entries updated and reviewed.

But this process can also be frustrating for people who want to write a post that’s just a quick summary of a day or a few hours.

Here are some tips to get more in-depth and concise about your writing, and make it easier for your friends and family to enjoy it. 1.

Make sure you have a title for your article.

You don’t want your article to just be a quick list of some of the things that happened.

It needs to be a longer, more detailed story that’s going to be more about you.


Find a way to put your thoughts in words.

If you’re a new writer, you may not know how to write your post without using a sentence structure.

This is a technique that I call “sentence structure”.

You put words in sentences that represent your thoughts, but your thoughts are just a piece of text.

The key here is to write as much as you can.

If you’re like me, your thoughts can be scattered across multiple posts.


Write from the heart.

Instead of writing a paragraph of content about yourself, use your voice.

When you write, use words you’d use in conversation to describe what you’re going through.


Use a simple form of shorthand.

I know that’s a weird tip, but it’s one of the best ways to let your readers know exactly what you mean.


Be specific.

A post that is just a summary of something is not a good way to get your thoughts into the text.

Instead, you need to put a little more thought into the post.


Create a structure that makes sense.

For instance, in the previous post, I talked about how I’ve found it easier to write post summaries and other short posts. 

But you can do the same thing with your articles.


Add color.

While I can’t tell you exactly how to add color to your journal, you can find some helpful resources here.


Be concise.

There’s nothing worse than reading your posts and not getting a clear sense of what your thoughts were about.

That’s why it’s important to write in the most clear way possible.


Create multiple versions of your journal entry.

Every once in a while, your journal will have a big version with your thoughts and a smaller version with things like the weather or the weather station you were at.

Then, you’ll want to keep a second version of your thoughts that’s all about the day.


Make your journal shorter.

Keeping your journal up to date is one of my favorite things to do.

So, it’s a good idea to write it down in a way that you can easily share with your friends or family.


Make it fun.

Not everyone will enjoy writing about themselves.

Your friends, family and coworkers will, too.

Even if you don’t think it’s going too far, this will help you make your post more entertaining for them.


Make a short version of a post.

The next time you get stuck, write down some ideas you’ve had for how to help your fellow writer.


Write about something you love.

If you want to help someone, write about a topic that you love or care about. 

That way, they’ll feel good about coming to your aid.


Create an inspirational message.

Write about something that you feel strongly about, like a life goal or a personal mission.


Add humor.

Don’t forget to use humor to keep your post entertaining.


Keep it short.

You want to make your blog post short.


Use an editor.

Writing articles is one thing.

Editing them is another.


Don’t worry about grammar.

Grammar can be the difference between someone liking your article and hating it. 19.

Avoid the word “you”.

Sometimes, people will call your post a summary or a summary-like post. 

This is not the case. 

The key to writing a summary is not to write down the words “summary” and “summary-like”.

Instead, write them in a form that makes them easy to understand.


Be creative.

In the same way that a summary can be about your thoughts about something, a summary should also be about something else.

Make sure to include everything from your personal life to the weather and the station you took your photo on. 21.

Don.t. write about your own emotions.

Emotions are not the same as thoughts.

If something hurts you, write it out in your journal.


Use the “find” function to
