Most designs require a write up attached. A small write up about their designs. And we all make wonderful designs. But there are times when we still loose marks and wonder, why did this happen?
Now, we as people in the art and design field have to be creative. Not only with our work but also with our writing. As they say, presentation has an equal weightage in your work, and writing is a part of the presentation.
- Reading is the solution, as a good speaker should be a good listener too, to learn. So should a good writer read as well. This improves the quality!
- Newness and freshness in whatever you write is required. Nobody likes to read or hear the language which is common or from the internet.
- The use of new words and phrases is what grabs attention quickly. But be careful; never use a word until you are sure about its meaning.
- Be crisp and precise. This is the biggest problem. We think that our marks will be proportional to the content. But this is a misconception. In a creative field the lesser and crisper, the better. You should have just the enough content to send across your message.
- Do not use wrong grammar. This is one of the biggest issues. Run a grammar check your write up and be sure of the grammar.
- Listen to news and interviews. News for latest and new words. And interviews to know how people dodge situations where they are uncertain of the answer of cover up their mistakes.
These are some easy pointers for an improved writing habit. Follow these to your benefit!
