The story you are about to read could change your life.
But what you need to know before you do is that most people do not read or write emails for a living.
Here are seven tips to help you make sure your story gets to them.
Readers and writers need to be able to quickly respond to messages.
This is a great thing to do because it makes it easier to respond to an email and lets you take the time to understand the content and subject matter.
It also gives you a chance to talk about it, and to talk a little about the author.
But if you are not a journalist, you will need to make it easy for your reader to respond, even if they are not interested in your content.
Write to people who are not you.
In your email, make it clear to your reader that you are writing to them, and that you have a great story to tell.
Make sure to make them aware of your subject matter and the topic of the email, and use the subject line “The Story” when writing it.
This is important because people who have not read your story may not appreciate it and might not understand why it is important.
It may make them think, “This is just a quick, shallow story,” and “Maybe that’s not what I’m looking for, but maybe I should be interested.”
And that may be fine, but it will also create a lot of conflict, and it will leave your readers confused.
Write it to people you like.
It’s really hard to be a great reader when your readers are people you don’t like.
This may not seem like a big deal at first, but the more people you write to, the less you will read and the more you will be confused about the subject matter of your emails.
So make sure to write to people whose interests you admire.
This way, your readers will be more inclined to follow you.
For instance, you might write to someone like, “Hi, I am writing a story about an author I admire.
If you’re interested in the subject, you can send me a quick email, but I’m not really sure about this subject.
I hope to hear from you soon.”
Then send the person a second email to say, “I really appreciate the time you’re taking to read my story, and I hope you’ll be able in the future to read it.
I’m sure you’ll love it.”
If you want to send someone a longer, more detailed message, make sure you give them the opportunity to reply, even though they may not want to.
For example, if your email is about a story that you love and want to tell, send the message, “Dear Author, Thank you for your email.
I look forward to hearing from you and looking forward to reading your next book.
Keep up the good work.”
Or, you could say, “[Author] I appreciate your interest in my story and I look forwards to reading it.
Thanks again for the time.”
And then write to your friend, or to your family or a business associate.
Write a personal story.
You might want to write a personal letter to a friend, a colleague, or your favorite sport team.
For some, it might be something as simple as, “Hey, I really appreciate all the time and effort you’ve put into writing a great personal story about your life, and you are so kind to me.
I wish you the best of luck.”
But for many, it could be something more complex.
This could include, for instance, “If you ever need help writing a book, I’m always available.”
Or you might want something more in-depth, like, “[My husband] loves my work and is an amazing writer, but he needs to write more.
He knows a lot about the story and would love to see more of it.”
Or maybe you want something that is longer than an email, like a letter to someone who loves you and your work.
Write in a language that your readers understand.
If your message is about writing for a large audience, write in English.
If it is about something simple like reading your work for yourself, you may want to make your message in a different language.
For example, a message that says, “Thanks for reading my story.
I want to know what you think of it.
If I have a question, I will be glad to hear it.” or “I hope you enjoy reading my book, so if you’re curious about what it is all about, I have some great tips for you.
If that’s too much for you, I’ve got great tips on how to get more people interested in reading your stories.”
If you are asking a specific question about a specific subject matter, make your communication in that language.
You can write to everyone, but you can also make sure everyone is reading your story and that they have an opinion.
