Briefly written articles that are straight to the point are attractive to today’s readers. Today’s digital generation no longer has time to read long, detailed stories about basically anything. Punchy is what they yearn for.
Writing short stories means beginning as close to the conclusion as possible, and grabbing the reader in the very first moments.
A story’s description should be thorough enough that the reader gets a sense of what happens and can fully understand the impact of the work and what the context of the commentary is about.
Many people find it time consuming to read a 600 page story, and will only read when information is presented in a brief and simpler way.
According to Rose Kalisa, a blogger on kals.blogspot.com, the opening of a short story is crucial. It must be well written, catchy, and evocative.
“I cannot spend much time reading a long written story. I simply open a magazine or any newspaper and read about two to four paragraphs of any article and when I find that it’s too long I just leave it,” she says.
Kalisa states that there is no need to bore readers with endless facts. Know when to leave them out. If you have an essential fact that you must convey, make it obvious in the first lines of the article.
If you want an article to attract the eyes of the reader keep it under 500 words. Don’t feel like you are skimping on quality content, either: This article is less than 500 words but is chockfull of information. Make every word count and as a writer, you will save time without letting quality slip.
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, long written articles are unattractive to read. This may not be a shortcoming in your writing ability, but a reflection of an improperly framed narrative.
Good articles start with a brief lead section introducing the topic and, paragraphs should be short enough to be readable, but long enough to develop an idea.
Writers should be in position to write short stories that catch the eyes of the reader. Long detailed stories are sometimes boring for the untrained reader and sometimes unhelpful for those who lack a reading culture.
