Is it writing or writting?

It is “writing” with only one “t”. “Writing” is not a word and is just an incorrect spelling of the word “writing”.


What are the 5 rules of writing?

I assume this is referring to the “5 Rules of Effective Writing” by George Orwell. The first of which is to never use metaphors or similes which you see commonly used in other prints. An example of that could be a simile that is common like, “sweating like a sinner in church”. This rule is to help you be more creative in writing so that your metaphors and similes are unique and pertain to your writing and could become their own phrases within the world of your book. The second rule is to not use long words where a short one will work just as well. An example of this could be when you want to use the word/phrase, exclaimed loudly when “projected” could work just as well. This rule is to help condense your writing to make it concise and clean. Being too wordy can make one’s writing unclear and muddy, but if you pick and choose the right words, the message becomes clearer and easier to read and understand.

The third rule is to cut out any words if possible. If there is any word in a sentence, where if you took it out the sentence still made sense, then ORwell suggests cutting the word out. This is like the second rule where it helps to make your writing more concise to make clearer meaning in your words that you’ve chosen specifically for your book.

The fourth rule is to never use the passive voice when you could use active voice. This one is harder to identify if you are not well versed in English grammar and the differences between passive and active voice. Passive voice would be saying: the cat was put outside by the owner. Instead, using active voice the sentence changes to: the owner put the cat outside. The importance here is to make sure the subject doing the action verb is clearly shown in the writing of the sentence. The direct object, or the thing being “verbed”, is the cat in this sentence so try to avoid starting the sentence with it because it tends to put it in passive voice. Using active voice helps to usually make sentences shorter and clearer, but it can also help with making the action of the story make more sense and it reads better.

The fifth rule is to avoid using complicated words, phrases or foreign words when a more commonly known English word can be used instead. For example, instead of trying to use the word “hullabaloo”, use a more commonly known word like “fight” or “riot”. This helps to make the reading of your text or book much easier for a wider audience since they will understand more of the words being used. Do not feel like you need to use fancy language in order to sound more intelligent as a writer. Try to make sure you use words that make sense in the context of your writing and story.

However, Orwell has a sixth rule, which is to break any of these rules before saying something outright ridiculous. Basically write in a way that uses common sense without getting too caught up in trying to write in a certain style or write in a level that sounds too fancy or over complicated if you don’t know half the words you’re using. The best way to write is to use the words you know and use them wisely to communicate your sentiments. If you do have a limited vocabulary, reading more will help to expand that instead of just trying to use a bunch of words that are foreign to you. Condensing the work to make it more concise and revised makes for cleaner work and often more engaging writing, but maybe part of the work is to make something a bit more drawn out for the style or effect you want in that moment. These are Orwell’s basic rules for effective writing, but overall, write in a way that communicates what you want it to.


What is a writing skill?

Being skilled at writing is something that is oddly objective and subjective at the same time. You can tell if someone is not a good writer if they do not use proper spelling, punctuation or grammar to get their points across. Often this is cause for a bad writer because a reader may get lost in the sentence along the way, too distracted by if the writer meant “blue” or “blew” or did they mean “to”, “too”, or “two”? Misused punctuation can make a reader get lost in what was the intended meaning of a sentence. For example, just a singular comma changes the meaning between these two sentences dramatically: “Let’s eat Grandma” and “Let’s eat, Grandma”.

These mistakes can be obvious to find and declare someone as a bad writer with little writing skill. But knowing if someone has good writing skills is much more subjective. Usually it is someone who can communicate effectively what they want to say. How “effective” someone’s writing is can be very subjective and depends on the reader, but overall everyone has some kind of writing skill. Whether their writing skill is good or bad is more up for debate.


What makes good writing?

Good writing is very subjective to the reader. Most people would say good writing consists of little to no errors in grammar, spelling and punctuation. But what makes better writing is when the story is able to be conveyed in an effective and entertaining way.


Why do writers write?

Writers can write for a multitude of reasons. Many writers claim they have this compulsive need to write, making them write in order to feel better or to get whatever’s in their minds out onto paper. Writers may write to feel better, whether that is getting out bad emotions like stress, anxiety, anger or sadness, but writers may also write to reflect and be at peace, writing down happy memories, or reflecting on the past or things they don’t want to forget. Writers may also write because they have a story they really feel needs to be told. There are also writers who want to write because they find it enjoyable to release their feelings and thoughts in this way. Writing can be a form of relaxation for a lot of writers. Every writer has a different reason for their passion for writing.


How can I develop my writing skills?

The best way to develop your writing skills is to continue writing and practice writing as much as you can. You can also take online or in-person classes that are about writing and how to improve, but most of those may cost money. You can also read books, blog posts, or watch videos on how to improve your writing. Another great tip to develop your writing skills is to get a bunch of different writing prompts and work on one every day or week, or whatever is best for you. This will keep you writing consistently as well as working your writing skills in a way you may not be familiar with and can push you outside of your comfort zone.


What are the different types of writing skills?

There are many different styles of writing such as descriptive, narrative, persuasive and expository. Descriptive writing is when you are using a lot of description words to explain a situation, area, event or idea. This style of writing is to help a reader feel like they are a part of the experience that is being written about. This style can help bring a story to life and can be used in writings like poems, journals, or lyrics.

Narrative writing is an expansion of descriptive writing where it is more of a story, with a beginning, middle, and end. There’s a clear storyline and plot and is a very common writing style seen and used most often in books.

Persuasive writing is used in order to convince someone of a certain idea or opinion. It can be used to inform a reader, but is informing a reader in such a way that they are being convinced of a certain idea that may be biased. Hopefully most persuasive writing uses research and logical reasoning to back up their claims, but be mindful that this is not always the case. If you are hoping to write in this style, try your best to be as reputable as possible.

Expository writing is used more to inform and explain ideas and concepts to a reader. This is a very common style as well and is different from persuasive writing because it does not use opinion to inform readers, but only uses facts. This is a much more educational writing style than the other three and should be based more in fact and therefore, more reputable a source if looking for that kind of information.


What is the synonym of writing?

There are multiple synonyms for the word “Writing”, such as compose, record, list, scribble, correspond, communicate, and inscribe. Many of these may not be the exact right word for the context you are using it in so be sure to double check the meaning of the word before using it to replace “writing”.


What does style in writing mean?

Writing style is how something is written and what kind of format and purpose it is supposed to fulfill. When choosing a writing style, you may not even realize you are writing in a certain way. The style could be as simple as choosing whether or not you want to write a story or if you want to write for a newspaper article.


What are the rules for writing?

There are no real rules for writing. Anyone can write however they would like without any real rules for writing. There are plenty of books and articles out there that claim what the real rules to writing are, and while there are some good rules for being more effective as a writer, they are not always cut and dry. What may work for some genres and some books and some authors may not work for all. Write the way you want and if it comes out entertaining, then you’ve written something well that at least some people can enjoy and hopefully more!


What are the benefits of good writing skills?

Good writing skills are important for improved communication across all walks of life. Since we are in the modern technology age, where so much of our life is dealt with through a phone, a laptop or some other device, it is important to have good writing skills just to be able to communicate effectively with those around you. This can help in texting friends to make plans more effectively as well as making Instagram or blog posts that are more readable to audiences. Good writing skills can obviously be helpful if you want to be a writer. Good writing skills are also helpful in any career path in the professional world to be better at writing resumes and cover letters as well as e-mails and reports for companies. Writing skills are important in everyday life because communication is important and nowadays writing and communicating are one in the same with people talking face to face less and less frequently.


How do I know I'm a good writer?

Finding out if you’re a good writer can be hard to do because it involves vulnerability and putting yourself out there and possibly being criticized. Showing your writing to friends and family who you trust can be helpful to see if you are a good writer. Always go into it hoping for constructive criticism and be open to it. If someone is being outright hateful, try your best to tune it out and move on to someone who can help you become a better writer instead of just knocking you down. Talking with professors who are experts in writing and literature that you look up to, respect or have a good relationship can also be helpful because you can ask them to look over your writing and give tips on how to become better. The key here is to go and ask for help and advice from people you can trust and will give honest opinions in order to help you grow as a writer. Some people can start out with great writing skills naturally and others it takes a while and a lot of practice until they are able to write something just as powerful or moving or entertaining. Be patient and be willing to put in the work.


What are the 3 purposes of writing?

The three basic purposes of writing are to persuade, to inform or to entertain. When writing something you can have one of these be your main purpose, but there can always be elements of the other two in there if you would like. Something that would be persuasive is trying to get you to have the same ideas that are being presented or someone trying to convince you to think the same way and agree with them. Something that would be informative is mostly newspapers or biographies that are telling facts. Something that would be entertaining would be anything that is meant to delight with a story for fun and can also teach a message or have some kind of common theme, but not necessary. Many pieces of writing that are meant to entertain may have no message or theme at all but are just supposed to be a piece of writing for fun for the reader.


Why do I like to write?

No one can say why you like to write but yourself. Maybe you like it to reflect or pour out emotions. Maybe you like to write because you enjoy creating stories and characters. Or maybe you have a lot of ideas that you want to share with the world and need to get them down. No one can say why you enjoy writing, but you!


What are the 4 reasons authors write?

An author will write either to describe, to entertain, to explain/inform or to persuade. If an author wants to describe, they will typically describe a feeling or a place and it would be in a poem or song of some sort, which is shorter and more descriptive. If an author wants to inform, this would be more facts-based and informational and it would be in the form of an article or something similar. If an author wants to entertain, they will typically write something fun and interesting that does not need to be happy, but can be intriguing to a reader in some way. These can be short stories or entire novels or anything in between. If an author wants to persuade, it would be something more based on opinions and the author’s own ideas to get the reader to think or feel a certain way. This can be in the form of a book or article or something similar.

When writing an essay for a course, be sure you follow the requirements usually listed by the professor or teacher to make sure you include the points they have provided. If just writing an essay for fun or for something that is more open-ended, it is important to have an introductory paragraph and a conclusion paragraph at the end. Make sure to include a thesis statement that is the main idea you are arguing about in the essay at the end of the introductory paragraph. Throughout the body paragraphs, this is where you will explain and make your points about your thesis statement, whether that is proving a point or discovering something. Topic sentences are a nice way to organize your body paragraphs, so make sure to have one at the beginning of each body paragraph to summarize what you are discussing in the following sentences. In text citations and other resources including a works cited page and references could also be useful or required for a course, but it’s not always required to write an essay, but makes it more reputable.

  1. Why does my brain function better at night?

The brain doesn’t necessarily function better at night, since that is when it will be less active. Brains are always more active during the day due to the lack of melatonin the body produces. Melatonin is produced at night and peaks when sleeping and then decreases when morning approaches. This is due to your body perceiving light; when the eyes perceive light during the day it knows to stay awake, but then when it starts to become dark, the mind and body begin producing melatonin to make you feel ready for bed and sleepy. This is why putting away phones and reducing screen time at night will help your body produce more melatonin and sleep better throughout the night. But this does not mean that people do not have a bunch of screen time at night, which can fool the brain to think it is not time to sleep and will not produce melatonin since it is still exposed to quite a bit of light from TVs, smartphones, laptops and more. Also behaviorally, night time can be more productive for humans because it is typically a more peaceful time with less distractions and ample free time to get work done or to think and achieve other goals. A combination of physical as well as behavioral factors can contribute to the brain wanting to be more active and productive at night rather than during the day.


  1. Do you say I am or I’m?

You can use either. In the English language, we have contractions, which combine two words to something shorter. Typically “I am” is used when you want to make the point more abundantly clear. Whereas “I’m” is used a lot more colloquially and commonly because it is shorter, faster, and easier.


  1. Should I use I'm or I am?

“I’m” is used more commonly and frequently because it is faster and sounds better most of the time than saying “I am” for everything. “I am” can be used mostly to emphasize the point the sentence is trying to make. For example, for wanting to say you were going to the grocery store casually, you would say “I’m going to the grocery store”. But if you wanted to emphasize that you were going you would say, “I am going to the grocery store”. The extra added syllable makes it more definite and emphasized. Neither one is incorrect however.


If you do not know the name of the person you are emailing, you can say something like “To Whom It May Concern” or use the company’s name you are addressing or just a simple “Hello” can suffice.


What is paragraph writing with example?

When using the letter “P” in texting, one could be referring to it as a tongue sticking out, but it is usually accompanied by a colon (:P) or a semicolon for a winking face (;P).

For example, if your friend is asking you something and you want to say “pretty much”, you can sometimes abbreviate it to “p much”. But most of the time when it is an uppercase letter p (P), then it has to do with an emoji symbol with the tongue sticking out.

Do Wattpad writers get paid?

There used to be a program called Wattpad Futures, that would give writers money based on the ads on the page, so they would get paid for writing. This program has been closed and shut down, because it did not provide a consistent amount of income for the writers like the Wattpad creators wanted. Instead, they are in the process of creating other programs to pay the Wattpad writers so they can get benefits for their creativity. They do offer writing contests that people can enter to win money as well as exposure. You can also become a Wattpad Star, which does not get you money or payment for writing necessarily, but allows you access to opportunities for brand partnerships and other opportunities that can lead to money and exposure. You can also try to be one of the paid writers on Wattpad, where people will pay for either a chapter of your story or the entire thing. Becoming a paid writer on Wattpad takes a lot of effort on the platform to begin with and means you must possibly become a Wattpad Star first to possibly get this opportunity.


Can you make money writing novels?

Absolutely. The amount of money you make depends on quite a few factors: marketing, platform, content, money you are willing to put into your novel. If you are willing to put money into your book, you are more likely to get more income from your novel. The money you put into it could be for editing, getting a publishing agent, paying a publisher, getting books printed, as well as possibly lots of different marketing tools and materials for the book, including book tours, trailers, ads, and more. If you do not want to put a ton of money into writing a novel, then you can write one, edit it and format it yourself, and sign up to self-publish it on multiple platforms that offer this service. Make sure you look into how reputable the platforms are so you publish it in a good system that will actually pay out a good amount for your work and allow people to access it rather easily.


How do I begin writing an article?

After that, organizing your research will help aid you in how to write the article from there.


How much should I charge for a 500 word article?

The average freelance blogger and writer charges or makes about $50 per 500 words, making it about $10 per 100 words. If you want to be more competitive within the market, you can charge for less than that if you feel that is really high and you might get more business this way. But make sure you are getting paid a good amount for your work and the time you spend writing the article. An article that requires a lot of research for just 500 words may need to charge more because there is more time and effort going into the article than one that can be answered easily within just an hour.


What is SEO writing?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and SEO writing is doing just that: writing to make a website more visible and searchable on the internet. SEO writing can help a website or post or blog or video become more visible on the internet because it is utilizing keywords to help it rank higher when someone searches for it, making it appear within the top few results when searching for that specific topic or keyword.


What are good writing websites?

There are tons of good writing websites where you can publish your writing on and interact with other writers. The one that is best for you is up to you to determine. The most popular writing websites are NaNoWriMo, Wattpad, Writer’s Digest, The Creative Penn, Brain Pickings, and Figment.


Where can I post my writing?

You can post your writing anywhere. You can set up your own blogging website for free using a variety of websites and tools to help you and post your writing there. You can post it on free writing platforms such as Wattpad or something similar. You can even try to put your writing into an ebook and publish it online for free. The fact of the matter is: do you want to get paid for your writing that you post? If the answer is yes, you have some more limited options because anyone can post pretty much anything online for free and thus your writing could be posted just for entertainment and perusal, but if you want to get paid for this, it is a bit harder. Starting a blog is free and would need a lot of traffic on the site to get people to start putting ads on there for you to get paid. You could start a Patreon, where people would pay to view and see your writings and you can offer other tiers that they can pay for like maybe one tier allows people to determine what you write about for a short story, or has them be a character in one of your poems or something like that. This can be rather fun and lucrative because of the engagement, but you would need a good following of fans to get a good amount of people to support you on this platform. Of course there is always writing a book and self publishing it for free online in certain platforms like Nook or Kindle, but if you want to post writings daily or don’t have a book, you may need to look into websites like Wattpad that could have payment options for your writing further down the road.


Are fanfics illegal?

Not necessarily. If you are writing a piece of fan fiction that is based on work in the public domain, meaning the public owns the work instead of an individual or artist, then it is perfectly legal. In fact, it can be published and you can make money off of it. Shakespeare is a common source for this material since his works have been in the public domain for so long, which is why we have things like Something Rotten! And Shakespeare in Love. But there is also a doctrine called Fair Use of copyrighted material. This means copyrighted material can be used in ways without the permission or compensation of the original creator. Small portions of a piece of work may be quoted or reviewed for educational or entertainment purposes like in classrooms or on YouTube. This also helps parodies and satires to be created without infringing on copyright.

For fan fiction, Fair Use comes into play because it is legal for fan fiction to be created on copyrighted material as long as it is “transformative”, meaning they transform from the original work, which has plenty of discrepancies. Many creators will pretend fan fiction work doesn’t exist or isn’t objectionable enough to require a lawsuit, but some creators may actually encourage fan fiction because it makes the fans happy to divulge themselves into this world the author created even more. Then there are of course the few creators who have problems with it and try fervently to stop anyone from creating it. So if you are wanting to create some sort of fan fiction on Harry Potter or something like that, it better be very different from the original story and use minimal main characters if you are publishing and wanting to make money from it, or you may end up in a giant lawsuit or have to buy the copyright for it, which will be quite the hefty fine.


Is wattpad hacked 2020?

Wattpad was hacked in 2020 in July, when a threat actor had shared a database that originated from Wattpad which included more than 280 million personal email addresses and passwords.


Why is wattpad bad?

Many people deem Wattpad to be “bad” because the quality of the literature on the website is not “good”, but many of the readers do not want good literature. But they instead want something that is filled with sex, a phantom plot and some kind of basic female character that they can pretend is themselves. Wattpad also shares a lot of similar types of stories with similar names, which makes them more popular and shown to more people than more original stories, just because of how the algorithm for Wattpad works. Many people do not like Wattpad because it shows the same terrible types of stories because they’re popular and don’t allow much room for lesser known, possibly better, more experimental stories to get popular and showcased as easily. It’s much harder to find those kinds of stories as well.

Wattpad may also be considered “bad” because anyone can write a story on there, which is good and bad. It’s good because it is inclusive, but bad because not everyone has the key to writing a compelling and intriguing story. Wattpad being “bad” doesn’t mean it is terrible, the stories may just be similar and not written very well. It also has a ton of extremely sexual content which is not suitable for children who may want to browse the website or post their own stories. Wattpad also has a bit of a history for being a bit unstable and hacked, so not the best and most reputable site if wanting to publish and post original stories. But if you are looking for some simple smut, it may be the place for you.


Is wattpad appropriate for 11 year olds?

Most likely, no. There is a lot of inappropriate content that is not suitable for children under 17 years old. Even if you are not actively searching for the inappropriate content, it may still show up because WattPad doesn’t have good filters to keep it out of your sight. There’s a lot of inappropriate content in book covers and book descriptions.


Why do schools block Wattpad?

Wattpad is blocked by schools because there is a ton of inappropriate content on there, not suitable for children at school. The stories posted there contain a lot of sexual content that is very explicit. Schools, I believe, would not want children on there, accidentally or purposefully, searching for these stories during school hours and on school computers.


What is the age limit for Wattpad?

The Wattpad’s terms of service has people accept that they are at least 13 years of age or older, although much of the content is very explicit and for people around 17 or older. But Wattpad allows people 13 or older to use the site. Although like all terms of service agreements, anyone can click and say they are a certain age that they are not.

How do you praise a writer?

Praising a writer is rather easy: talk to them about it! Tell them what specifically you like about their writing instead of just saying you liked it or thought it was good. Giving specific examples of what you enjoyed helps the author know what they are doing well. You could say something like: “I loved how you used metaphors to express the character’s emotions when they were in love” or something not as technical like, “I loved how dramatic the ending between the brothers was!” or even “I really liked the relationship between the sisters” or “I loved how you wrote the dance scene”. All things can be a bit general but are specific enough for the author to know they have done something right and can be encouraged to write more.

How long is a short essay?

A short essay is about 400-500 words and should be around 1-2 pages. Some professors/teachers may have a differing opinion on what a “short” essay is and may think it should be shorter or longer than the typical 1-2 pages.


How do I become a unique writer?

To do this you must find something that you can bring to the table as a writer that no one else has. This typically has to do with one’s own personality and voice, which differs from others. Also utilizing your past experiences and life stories in writing can make you more unique since those are things that only you have experienced in that way. You do not want to be too unique because what makes a great book is that it is original, but it can also be relatable to multiple people from various backgrounds and audiences. Harry Potter is about a wizard boy, which no one can relate to, but that is just the originality part, whereas the fact that he felt alone and just wanted friends and to feel like he belonged somewhere is a very real feeling that so many people can relate to at least at some point in their life, and that’s what makes it relatable. How do you start an essay introduction?

The best way to start the introductory paragraph of an essay is to start broad. Make some kind of hook that is relative to what you are talking about within the essay. A good hook could be something like a general opinion or statement that is intriguing, or an alarming fact or statistic, or it could be a pondering question that maybe many people wonder about. All you need is something to draw in the reader that is related to the topic you are writing about. Once you hook them in, then you can become more and more detailed and specific about what the essay will be about, introducing the topic further. Always end the introductory paragraph with your thesis statement, which should be the most specific and detailed explanation about what is being discussed in your essay.


Can you start a paragraph with for example?

It is probably best not, but there are some situations where this may be helpful. If you are talking about something and explaining a topic that only takes a few sentences, then starting a new paragraph with “for example” and listing examples about that topic wouldn’t make sense because there’s no need for a new paragraph. However, if you are explaining a more complicated topic more in-depth that takes over 10 sentences or so, then giving examples may make the paragraph too gigantic. So it might be best to start a new paragraph and then give examples, so starting a new paragraph with “for example” may be best in this scenario.


Is AA a letter or a word?

Two “A”s written like that is not a word, and is just two letter As written together. If you see this it may be in reference to battery type, like AA batteries, which are pronounced as “double A batteries”. Or it could be how someone has labeled something, if they labeled 26 things from letters A-Z and still have more to go, they would then go to lettering things like “AA” or “BB” and etc.
