So we all have that one friend or know that one person who loves to work…every…second…of the day!
They wake up and dabble straight into work and they rarely sleep because they need to keep working!
We call them, ‘Workaholics’ right? Tell me, are you one?
Okay, I need you to come closer so I can whisper a secret in your ears. Or since you are reading this, let me tell your eyes a secret…LOL
(Whispering) I think I might be a ‘Workaholic,’ but hey…I think I moderate it well. I think so. But if I’m moderate, then that doesn’t make me a ‘Workaholic’ anymore, does it?
Aaaanyway, you know the workaholics. And I’m sure you know one or two alcoholics; maybe you don’t but you have heard or read about some – you know, those people who drink excessively. The keyword here being, ‘excessive’
That brings me to the Fourth Unique Type of Reader you should target with your writing…
You ready? Then meet…
4. The Wordaholics
These are – would I call them – loyal readers. Excessive lovers of words!
They read every single word you have put down; so make it worth their while and use your words wisely and intentionally.
These readers do not believe that any word should go to waste, how sweet of them! LOL. Every word means something to them; every word is an important and integral part of the whole picture.
- The similarity between The Wordaholics and The Scanners is that they are both, ‘Whole Picture’ readers.
- The difference is that the Scanners go for specific words, while the Wordaholics love and read every single word.
How to write for Wordaholics
Make sure each word you use is considered essential and plays a partial role in the big outline of your writing. Use your words intentionally.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Now you have learnt a new word, ‘Wordaholic’ and here’s another secret about me – I am actually one!
I’m totally a Wordmania, a Wordsmith, a Wordist, a Wordlord, a Wordworm, a Wordist…
You get the idea, right? LOL
