Writing With the Material Available to You


No matter how much we would like to write about something, if there isn’t sufficient material about hat specific something, it would be nearly impossible to do. Well, although it is encouraged that we write about something we are interested in, we should also make sure that we know enough about that topics for us to be able to write something of sufficient content.

Everyone who writes has their specific pool from where they get their material. Some people get their material from having different conversations with different people while others get their material purely from accredited studies and documentaries. Well, information nowadays has become way too much for us to handle and because of the abundance of information, we wouldn’t even be able to evaluate whether or not something is authentic.

Here are a few ways where you can get sufficient material:

1. Books or Articles
Books or articles online are a great source of information and basis for your writings. The good thing about these books and articles is that the authenticity, although not always a hundred percent accurate, is substantial enough to feed your writing. Quoting people who have spent extensive time to research about the topic is something you would definitely want to do as this not only solidifies your writing but also gives credit where credit is due.

2. Comments and Opinions
Comments and opinions are quite important but sometimes unreliable. Ironically enough, it is very easy for you to find misleading comments and opinions than those which are actually educated and solid enough to be taken as facts. Comments and opinions are still necessary as you can easily compare the material you have with the thoughts of others. Knowing what others think is very important. Besides, it is them reading your article anyway.

3. Imagination
Really? You can do this? Yes! Your opinion matters too! The scary part about every opinion is the tendency for something to be bias depending on the involvement of whom the opinion belongs to. Imagination is a powerful tool and if not used to its full extent might even bring you downwards instead of improving your writing. Make sure that your imagination stays imagination and that you differentiate that from the cold hard facts in your writing.

Not everybody is good at writing but that’s okay. Writing is a skill and like most skills, it can always be improved. There are so many ways to get the sufficient material for your writing and it would be a waste if you don’t make use of each and every one of them. Give importance to research and you’ll see how big of an effect it would be towards the quality of your article.
