Why You Should Add Images To Your Writing (Particularly Online Content)

 

Writing well is one thing. But for today’s online audience, it’s not enough. When most people see a wall of text in their browser window, they immediately switch off. It’s just too much information for their minds to absorb all at once. 

For that reason, breaking up your text with images is generally a good idea. If you look at most online articles, you’ll see that writers invariably chop them up into sections, with relevant images giving users time to pause. 

“But,” you might say, “my writing doesn’t need images. It’s already descriptive enough by itself. Plus, I am not referring to anything pictorial, so using images is moot.”

That might all be true, but images still play a critical role for the following reasons:

It’s been a minute since we’ve had Author Tweets of the Week. (You would think that it would be a weekly feature given the name wouldn’t you?!?) Let’s kick things off on the right foot. A little inspiration for your weekend.

 

Today is the day to start, friends! Sit down today and write. Don’t wait. You don’t have to do it all at once. You don’t need to write everything you’ve ever wanted to write today. Just sit down and spend 30 minutes today. Get in the habit now!

Once you’ve started writing, keep going. Persist!

If you’re looking for a little inspiration to jumpstart your writing, @nkpalgal is exactly right. Music is incredibly powerful. Check out my guest post at Sally Ember’s blog on how music can inspire you to creativity.

 

Love this moment from @lawnrocket! Be like this bird, friends! Keep writing, even through adversity.

 

 

This is funny, and there’s a side of me that says, “Right on! Way to go. Talk to each other!” But if I’m being honest, if I go into a coffee shop and they don’t have WiFi, nine times out of ten I turn right back around and walk to another coffee shop (usually right across the street).

 

 

Great advice from one of the most famous American writers. Fix what you can, don’t worry about what you cannot.

 

Find this person as a writer. Find them a keep them close. If you’re luck enough to have multiple people like this, count your blessings and protect your relationship with them.

 

Shoot your shot, friends. That’s all you can do. If it doesn’t work out, if you miss, that’s okay. It’s all apart of the process. Put yourselves out there and make the glorious mistakes that are uniquely yours. Write your story.

 

Finally, rather than encouragement and inspiration to follow your writing passion to end the week, I leave with inspiration to love more.
