How To Inject Energy Into Your Writing

By on July 17, 2020

If you want your readers to engage with your writing, inject some energy into it. Writing that has none falls flat and will leave your readers disinterested and disengaged.

Successful writing is powerful; it makes an impact and leaves readers sitting up a little taller, ears pricked, and paying attention. 

How do you make sure that your writing is full of energy and delivers its best impact to your reader? Here are some useful tips.

Make your readers think

The most potent writing works because it makes readers think differently. It doesn’t just present facts or make a statement, but engages the reader, tells a story and makes them think about things from a different perspective, or changes their way of thinking, so they feel motivated to act.

Present a powerful idea

A powerful idea will deliver a significant impact, and the best writing will always engage readers with such a notion. Your concept should inspire them, solve a problem for them, spark their imaginations, provide a different path. Be bold and creative when presenting your idea, and your readers won’t be able to help but get excited about the possibilities you are offering to them.

Believe in what you are saying

Energetic writing is full of confidence. You’ve got to believe in what you are saying if you want others to feel in it too. If you are passionate about your work, this will shine through. You also need to make sure that you are authentic, bold, and that your work is error-free, so you don’t undermine your authority and put your reader off. 

Use varied language, and watch your pacing

Using the same kind of language, repetitive words, and similar sentence lengths can make for a dull read. Try to keep readers engaged by varying your language, using rich descriptive words and vivid imagery. Make sure that you pay attention to pacing to ensure your writing flows from one sentence to another and doesn’t feel slow or labored at any point.

Use bullet points

Bullet points can help make your message more powerful and deliver short, sharp, essential pieces of information, drawing your reader’s eye to them and making them easy to digest. Using bullet points can help keep the energy high.

Break up text with pictures

Pictures and other visuals can help energize your writing, so make sure that you take the time to find some high-quality, relevant images to include with your piece. 

By following the above, you can ensure that your writing is bursting with energy - energy that bounces off the page and leaves readers engaged, motivated, and excited to know more! So next time you write something, use the above to help you make your piece even more useful and engaging than before.
