The art of writing powerful phrases

If a science fiction writer, journalist or web content writers are now, you want to capture the record for people’s attention. In addition, for this you need to write powerful phrases, arousing the curiosity and drive them to read further.

If you think of things like a piece of music – what you prefer to listen to music that lifts and moves as it covers the range or music on subdued monotone drones? You must not be a natural at this. To follow through some of the practical tips, you can better form sentences that attach the reader’s attention.

Cut the fat

The general rule in writing set of powerful is that less is more. Do not saturate your sentences with phrases extracted. Direct and get to the point to be. Nobody has time to get through the trouble of writing tortuous true intentions of the author.

Some examples of fat cutting:

Due to the fact that Sally has a cold, which did not come to work.
Sally did not come to work because he has a cold.

I skipped my workout so I could take my daughter to soccer.
I missed my education to my daughter to make football game.

Lynn is the kind of girl who likes to take long walks.
Lynn loves to take long walks.

There was no real reason for the dismissal of John fundamentally.
There was no reason for John dismissal.

The fuel tank has suddenly exploded.
The fuel tank exploded.

They came into the kitchen and sat down.
He went into the kitchen and sat down.

Move strong words’ beginning or end

The first and the last words of a sentence are the most memorable. If the sentence is the strongest words in the middle, you can recast the lead at the beginning or at the end of both.

Example 1
The storm caused a large fire and several electrical deficiencies because of the strong winds.

Vs.
Strong winds caused more power shortages and a large fire.

The first example starts with “The Tempest” and ends with respect “winch” the second example that begins with “strong winds” and ends with “fire”.

Example 2
The tiger pounced on the deer and could rip his jugular.

Vs.
Falls on the deer, the tiger tore his jugular.

With the beginning of the word, “dip” attention of the reader immediately.

In short words

Do not write in a circle. Do not try, hidden or sneaky or hide your location in place two important or insinuations. No one will take the time to decipher the complicated sentences. Say it simple and clear, or not say.

E.g.:
It was as if John wanted to draw a sort of compliment to the quality of his report.

Vs.
John was fishing for compliments about his relationships.

Strangely, there were practically no youngish firefighter Men Bachelor Party.

Vs.
There were a few young men to firefighter stag.

Do not use cloth

Even science fiction authors, which can fall into a specific license for the victims of this allowed to roam. Make sure that the records are there for a reason. Move the story? Ferry them home the point? A gourmet meal contains no fillers and good records contain no fluff.

For example, if I set this in the previous paragraph:

Fluff fills the page up, but do not bring the reader closer to understanding your message.

It ‘really necessary? On the other hand, this point has already been done by previous sentences.

Get rid of passive voice

Passive voice makes no strong sentences. It slows the flow of information down and embarrassing sounds. Replace the passive voice with action verbs and see what happens:

The tiger tore the Hirsch throat.

The tiger ripped the jugular deer.

A fire was caused by the storm, strong winds.

The strong winds of the storm caused a fire.

The baby has been thrown out of Flyball.

The Flyball eliminated the child.

Choose the best verbs

“His” and “they” are taught some of the first words of ESL students. Because that is how it is? Because the most commonly used verbs in the English language. For the powerful phrases, you want to create a new land. Regal and “have” his “” and venture into the vast world of verbs. Check out this list of action verbs for some ideas. Just be sure not to weaken them in the passive voice (see above) together.

Create a picture briefly

Okay, so it does not fluff is not used, not passively orally or more words. It may seem like I have met all the tools as a writer away to leave with word phrases that sound five simple robots. However, believe me, there is a better world for you to wait for more verbosity. Moreover, you can strong sentences to write a few words. Hemingway was the master.

He argued that this is the best phrase you wrote:

“Baby Shoes: for sale, never worn.”

It tells a story that creates an image and arouses emotions, and has to cut to zero fat.

Create a tension

Yes, you want to get the point. No, you do not want that individual records are too complex to be understood in order. However, how to build a story, you can use the set as good tools to build the tension. You want your readers to know hunger, what happens next. Give tension pushes them to the next sentence without too much effort on their part. This is what you want for your letter – easier to read.

A sentence like that:

Jack had a letter under the door mounted to be prepared for them when they came home to their apartment.

I can with the addition of a little ‘tension fact are fascinating:

Once inside the apartment, they found a letter under the door pushed.

Provocate with words

Cause anger someone or applause with controversy sentences.

Instead: Many intellectuals tend to be atheists.

Try this: Unlike the faithful, many intellectuals are atheists.

Here you have a fat-free kit, to the point and not hide behind no opinion objectivity. Large sets take practice. Good luck to work on you!
