  • Copyblogger originally shared: These 4 Exercises Are Guaranteed to Make You a Better Writer Your writing is good. You know how to position words to make clear sentences. You can string together sentences into meaningful paragraphs. You can take those sentences and arrange them into a persuasive post. But you've plateaued. Your writing is getting predictable, stale, and forgettable. And you're not sure how to break out of that mold. If that's you, then you need to check out these exercise from MIT designed to help you evaluate your copy. You'll learn things like: - Your sentence length pattern - If you correctly emphasize the important parts in your sentences and paragraphs. - Whether you lean on simple, complex, or compound sentences. Analyzing your writing style will highlight your weaknesses, and give you a plan to make your writing better. So, when you've got a few minutes, perform these exercises: http://writing.mit.edu/wcc/resources/writers/analyzingyourownstyle +Demian Farnworth
