    How To Write A Good One?

    Speech writing is in lots of ways similar writing a paper, apart from that there is no

    penalty for spelling and punctuation mistakes. You should not try to write words in your

    speech that you are not relaxed pronouncing or don't know the meaning of because it can lead

    to a less fluently delivered speech.
    To be able to write a high-quality speech is a lot like making a good cake. Having the right

    elements is key for it's success. Every speech writer should follow these simple 4 steps to

    confirm you can deliver a successful speech.
    Step 1
    Start with the most significant idea/point on your outline. Consider HOW you can give

    details (show, tell) to your listeners in the most effective way for them to easily

    understand it. Ask yourself:
     How do I need to tailor my information to meet Joe's needs? For example, do you tell

    personal stories illustrating your main points? This is a very powerful technique.
    Step 2
    Note down what you'd say as if you were talking directly to them. If it helps, say

    everything out loud before you write and/or use a recorder. After you've finished, take

    You do not have to write absolutely everything you're going to say but you do need to write

    the series of ideas to guarantee they are rational and easily pursued. Bear in mind too, to

    explain or exemplify your point from your research.
    Step 3
     Check the 'tone' of your language. Is it right for the event, subject matter and

    your audience?
     Check the length of your sentences. If they're too lengthy or complex you can lose

    your listeners.
     Have you selected words everybody will understand?
    'There are 5 cent words and $5.00 words. Why use a $5.00 one when a 5 cent one tells it

    Example: He 'spat' = 5 cents. He 'expectorated' = $5.00
     Read what you've written out loud. If it flows naturally carry on the process with

    your next main idea. If it doesn't, rework.
    Step 4
    Between each of your major ideas you have to to give a alleyway. This links them for your

    listeners. The clearer the path, the easier it is to make the switch from one idea to the

    next. If your speech contains more than three main ideas and each is building on the last,

    then consider using a 'catch-up' or summary as part of your transitions.

    If you are in a real hurry you can also buy speech that is custom written according to your

    specifications and delivered in 24 hours.

    What's with all the double spacing? The poster (formerly) called "prince" posted something here recently, and it too was double/triple spaced, even though a sentence hadn't even ended.

    Maybe because the posters copy/pasted from somewhere else and the format at WN came out screwy. (?)

    (Just mumbling to myself.)

    I guess it's some spam about speech writing to get traffic to her site. My advice for giving a good speech is have someone else do it.
