One of the easiest ways to distinguish a professional writer from an amateur writer is to use an angle when writing articles. A professional will create an angle and compromise their article around this, while an amateur writer tends to go from point to point, resulting in an unclear angle. This can leave readers with more questions than answers.

So what exactly is an angle?

The angle of an article is the main objective or point of view of the article. A story about a dog biting a man can be on the dog’s side or on the man’s side. This is the angle.

For a journalist, angles are a very powerful tool. The same story can generate multiple sales when sent to multiple newspapers and magazines. Adapting the angle to suit the format of the respective posts gives articles a second, even a third or fourth shot around the traps. Taking the facts and figures from a news story about a dog biting a man and then “directing” him to a magazine for dog lovers can lead to a sale. The same story can also be rewritten and oriented to a newspaper impartially to create another sale.

While writing and submitting the same article to multiple publications is a no no, rephrasing it is not. As mentioned above, angles are a powerful tool and if you can learn to master this, you can create multiple sales from the same story.

Below are some tips and ideas on how to target your articles professionally.

o Before starting your story, write the title of your article and below it the angle of your story. Post it prominently in front of your computer. Keep it posted to remind you of the direction your article is heading. It’s easier to get lost than you think.

o You have your header and you have your content. Before submitting this article / story, please review the content carefully.

* 1) Do you have a clear point?

* 2) Does the angle point to the content of the posts?

* 3) Can it be rewritten with a new angle to fit other posts?

If you answered yes to these questions, you could have a winning article; a money roulette. It is useful to remember that no editor likes to be treated like a servant. They don’t like cleaning up after you. Present well-written stories, grammatically correct with a clear angle, that adapts to the format of the publications and your chances of acceptance multiply.

As long as your articles and stories are carefully rewritten and substantial wording alterations have been made, there is no law or reason why your old articles cannot be “reordered” to fit other posts or other categories in EzineArticles or sites of similar writers.

The art of writing is exactly that. An art. Take some time, find some of your favorite articles (the ones you own, of course!), And practice rewriting and “rearranging” them to suit different post formats or different categories of writers and social sites. You may be surprised by what comes to mind.
