Write a good article

1. Format of the articles

- An eye-catching title 
- A short introduction
- 3 titled paragraphs (140 words each)
- A quotation
- Total: 450 words

2. Writing an article in one hour: 

- 1st step - 20 minutes: preparation. Define:
o keywords
o the message to be conveyed
o the raw history (no details)
o some anecdotes and links to additional information.

- 2nd step - 30 minutes: writing the draft:
o define the title and subtitles
o write the 3 short paragraphs
o At the end, write the introduction (you can use a standard introduction if necessary)

- Step 3: - 10 minutes: editing:
o remove all unnecessary information (any phrase that can be removed without affecting the text must be removed)
o enrich vocabulary, remove repetitions
o check that the style is fluid, especially from one paragraph to another

ALWAYS USE THE FORM FOR THE WRITING OF AN ARTICLE:
