If I go back in time to see when exactly I started playing with words, I see myself as a 14-year-old kid who used to sit around on terrace on a sultry eve and pen down my thoughts in my diary.
One thing I couldn’t realize at that time was that it would become my full-time profession. And guess what I always dreamt of becoming? Well, a basketball champion.
Enough with that. Being said that I always loved playing with words, and it has been quite a time that I am working as a professional writer, I write content every day.
Now, one thing about writing is that it sometimes becomes quite challenging to maintain the originality of content, especially if the topic is new to a writer.
I don’t know if you are an expert in the field of writing or a newbie, there’s just one thing that I know, and that is we all face the challenge of maintaining originality in the content we write.
One thing about Google: It hates copy. So, if you want your piece of art to shine and trend on Google, besides everything else, you first have to focus on keeping it original.
Well, don’t worry!! Here, I am going to give you a few content writing tips on how you can write plagiarism free content.
Now, let’s move to the tips.
1. Start Original
Well, that’s the way to go. Start your piece of writing with your original thoughts. That’s when you are out of danger of facing plagiarism issues.
Now, you must be wondering about how to come up with something original on a topic that you have never even heard of?
Here’s the trick: Research the topic well, gather all the information you need, read it on, and grasp well. Now, you will be able to write it in your own words.
And if the topic is related to your field of expertise, I don’t even need to say that you can easily throw off the image of being a thoughtful and classic writer.
2. Modify the Content
One of the best ways to write plagiarism free content is by modifying the material that is already available on google.
As already said, please go through the content, get an insight into what it is about, and start writing your own quality piece. One thing to understand while modifying the content is that you know the context well so that you do not change the meaning in what you write.
3. Use Synonyms
Although Google does not like a copy, you have to see it as your best friend to write plagiarism free content. Pondering over why to consider Google as your best friend?
Well, it helps you in many ways. And when it comes to writing, it is one of the best sources to find synonyms. I am pretty sure that you know what synonyms are, right?
So, make the best use of Google to find synonyms and use the same in your writing. In case you need any other option, you may use Microsoft word for the same.
4. Change Adjectives
I have already given you a great tip of using synonyms, but what else can work well? Changing the adjectives.
So, along with changing the synonyms, focus on modifying the adjectives to make sure that your content is original.
5. Use Plagiarism Checker Tools
Only a writer understands the value of using other articles for inspiration. Well, many even suffer in the process of doing so. How? They end up writing content with lots of plagiarism.
So, what could be the best way to solve this problem? The plagiarism checker software.
Nowadays, there are many plagiarism checker tools available online like Quetext, Duplichecker, Copyscraper, etc. and you can use any of those to probe the originality of your piece of writing.
When you use a plagiarism checker tool, it helps you ensure that your piece of content is 100% original, and if not, it also lets you know what part of your content is copied, which you can re-write and make your unique creation.
6. Learn the Art of Quoting
There are times when a writer, no matter expert or newbie, might find it challenging to paraphrase a piece of content. Well, that’s when the art of quoting comes to the rescue.
You must know when and how you must quote a specific piece of content. Just when you find it next-to-impossible to paraphrase, copy the exact words, and use quotation marks.
A hot tip here: Never forget to give credits to the source for which you have copied the content.
Although implying this art is a great way to keep you at bay from the plagiarism issue, this does not go well with SEO (if you overdo it). So, make sure you maintain a balance between your original content and the quoted text.
Also, avoid using the quoted content if it does not add value or have any context to the content you are writing.
7. Play a Little With the Digits
You might, at times, be required to writing existing content. So, to eliminate the chances of plagiarism here, you can play a little with the digits.
Well, if a number in the source article is in words, you can write it in digits, and vice-versa.
And, that’s how you roll.
Writing isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would be a writer. When it comes to writing, even the experts sometimes suffer from the problem of coming up with an original piece. But with the tips mentioned above, you can easily craft a piece of content that you can proudly call your original creation.
That being said, I hope you never will end up writing a piece of content with any chances of plagiarism in it. Thus, you will save a lot of time, which you would have otherwise wasted in re-writing the content showing plagiarism.
Keep writing and rocking, folks!!
