This is a guest post by Prachi Mehta

In a world where every other person considers himself a Shakespeare, if you plan to stand out, you must know how to keep your readers on the edge of their seats. One can start from being original and witty. But mind you this writing business is much more than that.

The starting and the title surely holds the golden key to capturing the attention of your readers. It provides the readers with an overall idea of what the writer is actually going to talk about. If you  fail to provide an enticing and alluring starting, you might watch them walk off to other articles.      

When you can write “magnificently amazing”, then why do you bother to just write “amazing”. Being descriptive and more elaborate can come handy when people are looking for quality articles. If you are a writer then you should understand that words are your candy and words are your sword, So do not forget to keep an open space for them.

Readers enjoy reading about new things; so make sure to add current and interesting content. Unless you have anything different and constructive to offer why would somebody waste time reading your articles despite the fact how wonderfully it is written. Also try and push in some facts and figures, this gives a feel of f actuality and an air of certainty.

Your readers will never leave you if you get them going like a simple flow of feather. It is important to help your readers feel related and involved. Form a plot that gives them a chance to do some thinking themselves. Show them the obvious to take them off guard and learn to hit the right cords at the right time. More vivid and emotionally charged a description is, more are the chances of it going beyond the intellect of a reader and reach the heart.

Put in a good amount of research on the kind of audience you are targeting. It not only guides you in jotting down the right kind of content but also influences the style of writing. Also it does no ham in adding a tinge of conflict as it helps in holding the reader completely immersed. Conflict is basically providing satisfying answers to problems that you may plot to arise in your reader’s head.    

Most of the writers are seen to forget about the basic rule of writing. One must abide to the conventional rule of start-body-conclusion. It sounds good to get unconventional at times but if you want to keep the readers interested all through then stick to this golden rule. Sometimes a particular style is loved by a certain group of people but may be opposed by another section. So balance the article proportionately.

Making a person read your article is one thing and making an impression is another. So equip yourself before you plan to push a revolutionary spell on your readers.

    @Prachi: A great guest post; more than anything else, I was compelled to read the article because of the title and image 😉 It’s a different way to look at ‘edge of seat’.

    You have used a cool format for title that clearly highlights the benefits of reading the article. Clearly good organization of article along with facts sprinkled within content keeps the reader hooked on. I will also put references to recent news or popular culture so that my readers will not get bored.
