Research is the principle here. Mental effort is required. Extend your horizon, consult textbooks and medical experts to obtain up to date ideas on current health matters.

So be best prepared to give out quality and faultless stuffs if you would escape critical attention from critics.
3… Improve on your writing skills
Learn to write professionally. You could consult a few other existing prototypes to observe how words are arranged, how clauses and phrases are being used as well as how simplicity is employed to make your articles understandable by even a layman.

4… Acquire good knowledge of Microsoft Publisher

It’s the computer age and do not be surprised computers are doing most of the jobs now. They’re quicker and safer than having to write with pen and paper. However, for this task all you need to be acquainted very much with is Microsoft Publisher and Word. These two tools are perfect for these jobs as they afford you the convenience to write, edit, animate and add effects to your stuffs easily.
5… Find a good printing press and negotiate printing charges
Finally, your article is ready from your end. You may have to consult a few professional editors to crosscheck your work for any hidden or obvious errors, be it grammatical, contextual or typographic so they can be corrected before you begin practical publishing. After your work has been certified OK, locate a few good printing presses around or close to you and negotiate printing charges. Remember to settle with the mean charge as its always better than the cheapest.
