Writing At 10th Grade Level – How?
After taking the time to find out why no one is reading my work, one of the subjects I have come across is the level my writing is aimed at. It seems, my writing is between 6th and 8th grade levels. After asking myself what the formula for writing at 10th grade levels would be, I have found the following are true.
The use of complex-sentences with a higher number of words per sentence and the use of words that contain more syllables. This seems to be one of the basic formulas for improving my writing levels by several grades. There still have to substance, and style; and I wonder how to make the best use of my thoughts which are often abstract and difficult to express at all.
Also the use of compound-complex sentences is another factor in making the writing of a higher levels of writing. I’ve given some thought to my writing, and my goal is to write at a level the audience can understand; however there is need to improve the quality of my writing a great deal. What can most people read, and what level is best to express my message to the audience that I most want to reach? Seems that my current writing skills are not able to express my thoughts in a way that is intelligent enough to reach the audience I want to attract.
What writing advice can you offer about the structure, syntax, and formula for writing at a more intelligent level? How can I improve my current writing to new levels while still being clear about what I want to express? Many of the thoughts I write about are abstract ideas and nothing really concrete. My thoughts were, to keep it simple enough most people could grasp the ideas in a clear way.
By making less sentences per 100 words, and increasing the number of syllables per 100 words, that might be one way. What other ways are there to improve the quality of my writing? I really want to know how to write at a higher level. Because when people believe you are intelligent, they have a stronger willingness to listen to what you have to say. And I really want people to listen to what I am saying, because it matters a great amount to me personally.
I am only educated at a high school level, however I am very intelligent, and if I understood the formula to write at a higher level, I could work with what I have to make it happen.
So give me your best writing advice on how to write better!
