You are probably already aware that you need to be more specific when writing. After all, “write what you know” is a well known and often repeated piece of advice. But how do you know what you need to know?
In this post I will share with you some simple ways to improve your vocabulary.
STEP 1: Learn a New Word Every Day
The first way to improve your vocabulary is by learning new words. If you want to know how to get better at something, the best way is by doing it. And the best way to learn a new word is by learning it in context.
I recommend that you try to learn one new word a day. And if you’re using an app such as Anki or spaced repetition software, you can do this easily.
STEP 2: Practice with your Writing Tool
If you want to improve your writing, the second step is to use your writing tool every day. By writing every day, you will practice reading, writing, editing, and revising.
It’s important to write about topics that interest you. If you are not interested in a topic, you will not be able to write about it in a way that will make it interesting.
You should also try to write about topics that are related to your work. If you have a business website, you can include links to your social media profiles.
STEP 3: Edit Your Work
Another great way to improve your vocabulary is to edit your work. This means writing what you wrote down, then editing it.
I recommend that you do at least one round of editing before you send out your work. You should also consider having an editor look over your work before you publish it.
STEP 4: Use Google
The final step is to use Google. You can use Google to search for synonyms and antonyms. You can also use it to learn new words by looking up definitions and examples.
