How to write an article
What is Article?
Article refers to the analytical genre. Author raises the problem, conducting its analysis and proposed solutions (concludes).
For example, in this article the problem – to teach the reader to write interesting articles for websites, magazines, newspapers and other. In the process we will examine how to do it, and formulate conclusions on the basis of the master-class.
Structure of the article:
The phrase indicating the problem that the author proposes to analyze. Title of the article should be concise and clear, to attract attention, arouse interest. Good work headers, which contain a question.
An example of a good headline: “Is it worth it to buy shares in American companies?”
An example of a bad title: “Shares of American companies grow.” This title does not indicate a problem and it is not clear what will be dedicated to article.
As a rule, a single paragraph of text that reveals in detail the problem posed by the author, and indicates its importance to the reader. If the title draws the reader’s attention, it should encourage the entry to read the article to the end.
For example, you write an article on the theme of the car wash with the headline “Should I wash the car in the winter?”
Entry for an article might look like this: “Many car owners don’t know wash or not the car in winter. On the one hand – it is necessary to wash off the dirt from the car body with the reagents that are harmful to the body. On the other hand – washing the car in winter can harm because of the difference of body temperature and water (heat stroke). Let’s see what harms the car more.”
3. The content of article
It consists of analysis of the problem from the point of view of the author. You have to bring a different perspective to solve the problem and to choose the most suitable solution in your opinion. Article Contents enliven examples from personal experience, comments, quotes.
If the article gets more content is broken down into separate parts for each make a subtitle, as in this article on how to write a good article.
One paragraph with your conclusions. For example, in an article about a car wash, you can complete the article output – wash or not to wash your car in winter.
