Here’s a simple trick to improve your writing: Write like you talk.
A lot of people write in a language they would never use in a conversation with a friend. That’s sad because your reader should be your best friend.
The funny thing is, you don’t need complex language to present complex ideas. Simple informal language is the king of easy understanding. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great authors who can use complex language in a very artful way. But for everybody else spoken language works much better.
Writing in spoken language sets you ahead of 99% of all writers. And it’s easy to do: just use a microphone and have a conversation with your reader.
Spoken language tends to be more engaging. But sometimes it is full of unstructured phrases and even random thoughts.
Then it’s time to edit your text. Add punctuation marks, remove unnecessary words and make sure, you use correct grammar.
To help you with proofreading and editing, Dictandu integrates a spelling and grammar checker and a thesaurus. It scans your text for errors and bad style, it then suggests fixes for all of them.
Dictandu makes it easy for you to choose a better workflow and stick to it. You can divide the workflow of most writers into 4 phases:
Every piece starts with a new idea. You then research your topic and get your thoughts in order. You then switch to writing and editing - this is where Dictandu comes into play.
Dictandu supports you improve your writing and editing phases. It helps you to separate between the two.
When you are dictating you can focus to get your thoughts out. A lot of us edit their texts while they're writing. This is a big mistake. You should focus on getting your work on paper and produce content.
