Style and Writing Points
Remember Your Audience. This may vary from channel to channel, but the focus of your content should remain toward the issues and challenges Christians between the ages of 24-45yrs face. Assume your readers are partly spiritual mature and partly not. Please offer solutions in areas you feel you have authority.
Write a Catchy Hook. A captivating start will connect with readers immediately and maintain the connection throughout the story. Itâ€™s worth the extra time to craft a gripping first sentence or paragraph and a concise but intriguing headline.
Use Active Verbs. Whenever possible, avoid using the passive voice.
Show, Donâ€™t Tell. Youâ€™ve probably heard this phrase many times before, but it remains appropriate. Itâ€™s always better to advance your story by using specific examples, supporting your most important points with quotes, illustrations, and brief, well-worded stories to keep the reader engaged. Avoid long monologues or rants.
Make Your Point or Points Clearly and Concisely. A captivating article will typically present a problem followed by a bold solution (or solutions). Keep it simple and to the point, and donâ€™t forget the main idea.
Edit Your Work. Please make sure to give your story three to three proofreads for spelling errors, misused words, and punctuation. A few minutes of review can make a big impact when it comes to editing and increases the likelihood it will be posted on Parable.co.za. Proofreading is always time well spentâ€”and helps people respond well to your message. Parable.co.za reserves the right to edit your work for considerations of space, audience, common usage, and consistency.
