    Truth be told:

    There is nothing called amazing writing. All you have are rewrites, rehashes. And the marketing world is squeezing the last drop out of it – scraping, compiling, re-structuring, rewriting, repackaging, polishing, publishing – rinsing and repeating.

    Luckily – you can give birth to epic writing through rewriting. Even the big-name writers swear by it, which is why imposter syndrome continues to be a thing.

    In order to craft epic stuff:

    Take what you already have, restructure, and keep polishing until it feels the X factor.

    Let's put this sentence under the microscope:

    "He helped me with the whole process."


    Simple and crisp? Yes. Can be bettered? Absolutely.

    Feast your eyes here now:

    "He grabbed me by the hand and walked me through the process step by step."


    Notice the vibe? The 'oomph'? That's the North Star – embrace that.

    When you're firing such sentences, people race to your next lines. And that's the recipe to keep the readers glued – fighting and sparking attention on every sentence.

    All that said, don't buy into the dream of rewriting being easy -- that's a complete myth. Invest the time and respect it deserves, and you will master it too.

    Until next time.

    So sorry for not getting back to you guys. The notifications totally skipped my eyes.

    Here's what I learned about linguistic structures: you learn them by reading a lot ''OVER THE COURSE OF TIME".

    I used to be the person to shortcut the system, but in all honesty, reading voraciously and taking notes of powerful sentences is the way to go.

    Which plagiarism are you addressing, man? The 'Copyscape' sort or 'Stealing Ideas' sort?

    I'm assuming stealing ideas. If so, if you're scraping insights from several sources and 'stitching them together' nicely, you're well on your way.

    Did I miss out on anything?

    If you are rewriting smartly, it can be avoided. It will come with practice though in my opinion.

    It does not even come in the fray as most of the articles that I have gotten off BHW are all rewrites :) i.e. it was my wish to have them all rewritten

    That's what businesses are thriving on ;) The audience only cares if the insight helps them.

    Rewriting is an art, though once mastered, you can transform simple-toned, unengaging content into literary masterpieces.

    I feel you...I also do the same by scraping several sources then stealing ideas from it and then rewrite the content in my own way and in a different structure.

    Never heard of it. Do you mean writing content that's backed by data?

    I was once learn to write a short story and got a good words that still confuse me. The words are show dont tell" to your reader.
    Did you do that to rewrite a paragraph?

    Thanks for sharing

    Hey man, yes, showing instead of jotting down words is powerful. When you can paint a picture in the mind of the reader, the same information makes more impact, gets inside their heads.

    I personally like writing in vivid vocabulary. But that takes time. You have to punch up the piece up by going over it again and again.

    Then again, many clients don't like such a vivid form.

    The only problem with rewritten content is that Google does not loves it.
