3 Tips How to Write Better Even As A Non-Writer

by | Mar 23, 2021 | 0 comments

Writing isn’t necessarily the first skill that springs to mind when thinking of a software engineer. During my journey to becoming a digital creator, I’ve had the chance to write on technical subjects and share my perspective, ideas, and insights with audiences from a variety of industries. I utilize the following three writing tips to start writing better and switch from 1s and 0s to “your” and “you’re.”


At the core of all content is the skeleton that determines what you want to say. An outline gives you the opportunity to plan what you want to say and build a structure for your message.

Outlines come in all levels of granularity and detail; I personally start with a four-part structure:

  1. Description
  2. Introduction
  3. Body
  4. Closing

This way I can start at a high level and build out additional subgroups as needed.

Write Out Loud

If it doesn’t sound right when read out loud, it probably won’t make sense to readers. Reading your work out loud helps identify gaps, miscommunications, and hidden syntax errors that you may not catch when you’re writing everything out.

Be Yourself

You have a unique voice that deserves to be heard (or read). Try writing your first draft in your own voice to make sure that your full ideas are documented and illustrated. It’s in the second draft edits that you’ll tighten up and tailor your tone and language depending on your audience.

There’s no one way to become a better writer. If there is a topic you are passionate about and have a message to share, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and share your work.
