5. Uniqueness

As your pain is different, try to write your Shayari uniquely and put your feelings in it. The motive of the Shayari can be the same. When you place your feelings into it, then it will be best, and it will be a unique one. Readers prefer unique Shayari. So try to put your own emotions and be unique. You can follow someone’s style of writing or structuring a Shayari but try to avoid using the same words.

6. Dedicating

Try not to dedicate someone directly, while writing always avoid using their names. Somewhere it becomes awkward. If you want to dedicate your Shayari to someone whom you used to love so much, but due to some reasons your partner left you, then you just dedicate them indirectly without using their names rather than using emotions or feelings into the Shayari. Emotional Shayari is mainly written for failures in love faced by the writer him or her, or maybe he or she is writing for others imagining their situations or circumstances after heartbreak. When you are writing an emotional Shayari, try not to write for yourself. Only try to write for all so that everyone can relate.

7. Message

The message or motive of the Shayari should be clear. The main message lies in the last lines of the Shayari. So try to enlighten the previous tracks.

8. Word Selection

Choose suitable words or phrases to make it more emotional. Vocabulary is essential as much as you will learn new vocabulary as much as you can add new words to it to make it catchier.

9. Make a Connection

Try to add some emotions by which others can make a connection. Suppose a real-life experience which is very common to most of the readers. Readers mainly find connections and try to relate to their lives and stories.

10. Rhythm

Your Shayari must follow a rhyme, so that reader’s interest gradually grows while reading the Shayari. A rhythmic Shayari is also very musical to read, and it lefts a soothing impact on our mind and heart.

11. Maintain the Flow

While writing an emotional Shayari, follow the flow of the Shayari. When you write the first line, then just read it several times, automatically your mind and heart will tell you the second line of the Shayari. Maintaining the flow is very important. It keeps a monotonous rhythm and leaves an effect on the reader’s mind and heart also.

An emotional Shayari is the shortest collection of words, feelings, and emotions, but it makes a long-lasting impact on the reader’s mind.
