Here are a few writing tips that are helpful when you’re trying to entertain your audience. Use these 6 simple writing tips to keep your readers engaged.

Bold

There are certain sentences that will hit better if you bold certain words in those sentences.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. I didn’t drink your juice.

Gives a completely different meaning from:

Whoa, whoa, whoa. I didn’t drink your juice.

Sarcasm

There are certain sentences that will add some humor for your audience just by adding quotations.

Ya. Right. Because the doctor said so.

Is a little less fun than:

Ya. Right. Because the “doctor” said so.

exageration

Depending on the type of audience you have, using exaggeration can really give your conversations more personality.

Um, excuse me?

Has less personality than:

Um, excuuuse me?!

Or even:

Um, excuuuuuuse me?! 😠

repeating

It can often be beneficial to repeat a word, or even several words, to impart a certain mood into a sentence.

You can do it by repeating one word:

There there.

Now now.

Or by repeating multiple:

I said what I meant, and I meant what I said.

Pausing

Not enough people use ellipses (…), but pausing for effect can be a very good way to create drama in your writing.

I… I can’t believe you did that.

Has more drama and emotion than:

I can’t believe you did that.

shortening

As most writers already know, it’s really important to use short sentences to give your readers a better reading experience, but short sentences can also be used to give your voice a commanding presence.

We have to save the cheerleader in order to save the world.

Is less commanding than:

Save the cheerleader. Save the world.
