So you would like to write BMX articles. Maybe you want to write a scene report, a contest, a recent roadtrip, a product review or any other BMX related topics. Your ultimate goal is to be published in an e-zine or a BMX magazine. I listed some ideas below that may help you get started.
The first thing to do is make an outline of the article you want to write. This will help you stay on track when you are writing the article. This will also keep you from rambling off and losing your reader. Below is the outline for this article that I prepared.
Title; Making a BMX Writer out of you.
Introduction Create Outline Writing for the reading audience this article is intended. Length of article. Submitting pictures for the article. Proofing the article after it is written. What to do with the article after it is done.
When you are writing an article you must take into consideration who the intended readers will be. If you are writing for a general audience such as a newspaper article it doesn't make any sense to talk about doing tailwhips to manual or maybe a toothpick on a subbox. Instead you would say the BMX rider is performing a bike trick on the ramp. If you are writing a scene report for a BMX rider reader you would not bore them to death saying the rider was doing a BMX bike trick. Something better would be "he was out of control whipping out tailwhips to icepicks on the spine".
Write an article to lengthy and you will probably lose you reader before he or she is done with it. I never write articles over 500 words. This article has 470 words. If you have a long article you should find sentences that could be taken out.
Generally when I submit pictures I send them by e-mail as .jpg extension files and I also send a clear hard copy (photo paper) to the editor. I also mention who took the picture and who is in the picture.
After finishing your article read it and make sure all the words are spelled correctly and you have used proper grammar. Also make sure the article flows and makes sense. After doing that have at least one other person that is good in the subject of English proof it also. Even better have another person proof your work. Sometimes if it is an important article I will have a third person read it.
You can submit it to Evilbmx. The editors will look at it and decide if they will work it in the next e-zine. There is also many article directories you can submit it to on the web. Some of the directories are: http://ezinearticles.com/add_url.html http://www.goarticles.com/
