Before you begin you can ask yourself:
-What is it that I’m writing about and is my point clear enough?
-Have I put my opinions also in the article?
-Is my article easy to understand? Plain is clear and also helpful. (You should bear in mind that many people reading this site have learned English as a second language and it’s important to keep the words interesting, however too much of your country’s slang will not really help as your article might just miss the point)
-Is it catchy? First impression is the best, so start it at its best. People even gist through the article at times, so make sure your paragraphs start in an interesting manner. A clear Introduction, body and conclusion is vital to leave a lasting impression.
-Does this article talk of Korea?
