#18: The 4 Writing Frameworks For Instantly Better Content

Want your content marketing to be more simple yet original? Want to write faster thanks to great outlines? Check out these four writing frameworks to help you out.

Hey everyone,

Welcome to another Content Love episode! In this one, I took some time to take you through some of my favorite chapters of one of the best books on writing out there—Roy Peter Clark’s Writing Tools: 55 Essential Strategies for Every Writer. I LOVE this book, and it has made a huge impact on how I approach my writing.

Even better, this episode will be helpful even to those of you that don’t necessarily write as a day-to-day job, but you’re maybe managing writers, hiring them, doing a lot of editing, or any similar work that requires you to contribute to a creative piece of work.

Listen in to hear about these four writing tools, as Roy Peter Clark calls these approaches to your writing:

  • Tool 11: Prefer the simple over the technical; all about using shorter words, sentences, and paragraphs at points of complexity
  • Tool 16: Seek original images; all about avoiding clichés and first-level creativity
  • Tool 24: Work from a plan; all about outlining your work, as well as indexing and naming its big parts to help the reader remember the whole story
  • Tool 40: Draft a mission statement about your work; all about working towards an ultimate result with your writing

Tools and other resources I’ve mentioned:

I hope you’ll let me know what you think of these tools, and I can’t wait to hear how these tips have helped you! Don’t forget to tweet me to share your thoughts with me. Thank you so much for joining me today!
