How to write well Part 2

Share With :

Hi Everyone, my name is Meenakshi Sharma and I am the Founder of GLIterARTi. We have been doing videos on how you can write well. In the last video we spoke about the outline and the basic structure.

 

Today we continue talking about the structure by explaining the basics of the structure by explaining the Beginning, the Middle and the End or the Introduction, the Body and the Conclusion

 

 So, let’s start from the beginning or the Introduction

 

 

The purpose of an introduction is to give the reader or the listener an understanding of the topic that you are taking up. 

This can be done by simply mentioning the topic but there are many interesting ways of doing it. One of the interesting ways of doing it is to use 

 

 

A relevant quotation

An example or a story that somehow leads to the topic.

You can also do a kind of a question, a rhetorical question like “What if You did that ….” 

 

That gives the audience some kind of a thought process towards the topic.

Some people like to start with a joke but unless you are very adept at the art of giving out a joke and getting the response that you want I would suggest that you stick to the other styles of starting.

 

So now that you have done the introduction, you can move to the Main Body or the Middle  

Now this BODY will again be subdivided into various parts depending on the topic 

The simplest thing is what we call the 

4 W’s and the 1 H 

What

Why 

When

Where 

&  

How

The idea is to keep yourself focused on what are the issues you want to address in the main body or the middle of your speech or your writeup or your essay or your blog. 

 

 So, the structure of the middle should answer these questions. Sometimes the topic is such that the structure would just be focusing on the advantages and disadvantages or the pros and cons of a topic. In which case, this is what the middle will be about

 

These 4 W’s and I H – the

 What

Why 

When

Where 

&  

How

 

 

Keep you very focused on the need to cover these topics

Now we come to the last part of the conclusion or the ending. Now the Conclusion must not be just a summary of the topic that you started but it could also be a kind of resolution of the subject. Or it could be a Call For Action

You want your reader or your listener to act on the kind of things that you have discussed and this is where it is important to have a kind of tying in or resolution of the subject that you chose.So, let’s go over it one more time. 

The Structure of the Beginning, the Middle and the End can also be called the Introduction, the Body and the Conclusion. While the Introduction actually introduces the subject, the body will cover the main text – the 4 W’s and the 1 H or the advantages and disadvantages and the pros and cons of the topic that you have chosen. The idea is to create a balance and present all the possible information from all sides. The Summary of the Conclusion will either be a resolution or a Call For Action or both. Either way, you must make sure that by the time you end, you have resolved the topic and tied it in well.

 

So that’s about writing, See you again Next time, Thank You
