How to Write an Interesting Article

Articles are defined as small pieces of information that appear in periodicals like magazines, newspapers and more recently in websites. They provide insiders information or very in-depth information about a particular topic. The question that needs to be answered is how to write an interesting article? An interesting article is not an easy task to undertake because it is quite tricky to define the word interesting in the broadest sense. Some things may be interesting and appealing to a section of people but vehemently opposed by another group. As an end result, the article being written will be appealing to only one section of the readers, whom the articles are targeted.

When I was shown by my teacher on how to write an interesting article, it did not pretty much make sense to me at that time. The article was meant to be targeted only to a particular type of audience decided by the author. Because, once that bit is done and dusted, the proposition of actually playing the game becomes less intrusive. Writing is considered important and the most potent tool against the ills in the society. The most effective ways on how to write an interesting article is discussed here.

The topic is first researched upon to provide the fodder for the writing of an actual article. Then an outline for the article is created in this effect with a headline, introduction, body, conclusion and resource box. The headline is the first bold sentence of phrase that draws attention to the article. This is therefore one of the important aspects of writing an article. There should be an effort made to make the headline as catchy as possible so that, it will bring in more curious people to the attention of the headline and then subsequently to the impending article. Then comes the introduction part where a few lines will focus on the problems that are to be discussed in the article.

The Body of the article is used to discuss all the possible solutions to the problem that is outlined in the introduction. They are broken down to points and then individually discussed in the body. The separate paragraphs will make it easily accessible by the users when they search for the article by way of using one of the popular search engines. The final conclusion will contain a very brief summary of the article, just like the introduction and then calls for the reader to take action or gives a solution to the impending problem

The margin between an interesting article and a controversial article is a narrow one. As Mr. tkeister points out, an interesting article can be interesting and appealing to a portion of the society but loathsome and hateful for another portion, which would make it controversial. The end result would be, if it is really interesting to read and ruminate on, it in itself will have the effect of disarming those who hate the content, or style. If it is the intent of the writer to fight ills in society through his words and eliminate them ideologically or by stimulating conditions powerful enough to eliminate them materially like many writers in the past centuries did, he will have to write controversial articles in an interesting way without stop. George Bernard Shaw was a fine example. He was considered as an Incarnation of Satan by his opponents, who fanned the flames wherever he went. How to create one is what Mr. tkeister outlines here, which makes the process lucid to understand and useful even for experienced writers. Thanks Mr. tkeister for this good approach.
