Before I get started, I want to say that this is wrapping together a couple of other trainings that I have done before. Now although I do believe this one will be able to stand on its own, if you would like to go over the other trainings to get the full experience of this one, you can do so here.

How I Write Quality Content

Now, to jump into the training on this tutorial.

Grammar, spelling, and punctuation do matter in your writing. Those are about making something that flows easily and smoothly for your readers to get through and enjoy.

Note: I do understand that some people on WA aren't native to speaking English and that is ok, but having proper English is important. I do understand (I have studied other languages) that other types of languages don't use what I call "filler" words as much or if at all.

For example, Ni Hao (Pronounced Knee How) is Chinese for a greeting. It literally translates to "You, good." People who speak English don't talk blocky like that. They say, "How are you doing?" "Are you good?" "You doing ok?"

Don't talk like you text. If you want to stand out from the crowd you want to be able to let people know that you can talk about what you are discussing as well. No one wants to see a "la8er" instead of the word later.

Think of it like this, would the top people in your industry care about their spelling and how it sounded on paper? If they would, you should. Most of us know Jack Canfield, T.D. Jakes, Tony Robbins. Do they care about the look and polish of their content? You betcha! So you should too.

Skyhorse, Just an "Awesome" tutorial. I took your words, "This is going to be the best I can put out,...'For right now' " and put them on a sticky note on my computer, because I'm working on my first Street Article. I have all ready done my "About me" and two blogs for my website...-3%, so I have 97% more to go and yahoo...I'm perfect. That will be the day. Again; Thank you, great material for a beginner like me. Best of Luck to you.

That's awesome, thank you for using my words as inspiration! You'll do fine with your Street Article, it is just like writing something for your website.

There are 2 ways you can look at this as well. Always be striving for better. Following what the great people in your industry do and learning from them and how they work. Which is what I do, but if you do that, you need to remember all the progress you have been making as well.

Because you can get into a trap and always see all the stuff you have to do. I know I have because I look at people who have been training horses for 18+ years and go, "Gee, they know a lot more then me and are so much better." Yeah they're better, they've been doing it for 5 times longer then I have. And so I look back over what I have accomplished and where I have come from as well.

Always be looking forward, but don't forget to look back, and enjoy where you are in this moment!

I sometimes not able to relax myself while writing an article. I get an instant headache because I run out of ideas. What should I do? I have to write with my free mind, but somehow I couldn't. I really like your tutorial. I have learned great things.

Glad you found value in it.

If you run out of ideas it could be one of two things.

1) You choose something else for you topic/niche that you are more passionate about and have a lot more ideas on.

2) Sometimes, even though I can talk about my niche all day long, when I sit down to write my mind goes blank. So I would suggest carrying just a small pad of paper and a pen with you wherever you go and then just let inspiration come to you. This is a great exercise.

Also you need to find out what other people are wanting to know about your topic/niche, what questions are they asking? What is the stuff you would talk about to someone who didn't know anything about your niche, and what is the stuff you would talk about to someone who knew just as much as you?

Here is something as well, think about if you had an interview with someone who knew way more then you did, they have been in this topic for 10 years more, 20 years even. What would be some questions you would ask them? And then you can pretend, (like I said before) that you are someone who knows nothing about it, and they are interviewing you about the information you know. What would be some questions they would ask.

Sometimes we are so close to our topic that we forget how vast and big it is and how much stuff we can write about because we know it so well. Also you can do the Google instant as well. Type in something someone would look up but don't finish it, let Google tell you what people are looking for so that gives you ideas.

Another thing is keyword research, if you type in a keyword you are looking up, others will come up and give you ideas as well.

This is a great tutorial, really enjoyed it and it's spot on. Don't try to be the best, just try and be better than before. You may have heard of the Japanese word "kaizen" used a bit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaizen Its used to mean continual change for the better. That is all you need to do, get better every day. Look forward to your next tute.
