This post is part of the πŸ“– Everybody Writes series.

Today I am still reading Chapter 6 of the book Everybody Writes written by Author Ann Handley.

Follow a Writing GPS

According to the author, a writing GPS constitutes of 12 steps for any longer text we might produceβ€”blog posts, ebooks, white papers, site content and the like.

  1. Goal (what is your business goal?) What are you trying to achieve? Anything you write should always be aligned with a larger goal, even an individual blog post.
  2. Reframe: put your reader into it. Reframe the idea to relate it to your readers
  3. Seek out the data and examples
  4. Organise. What structure helps communicate your point?
  5. Write to one person
  6. Produce the ugly first draft
  7. Walk away
  8. Rewrite
  9. Give it a great headline or title
  10. Have someone edit
  11. One final look for readability
  12. Publish, but what now? Don’t leave your readers just standing awkwardly in the middle of the dance floor after the music stops. What do you want them to do next?

The more personal you are, the more universal you become
