I want my writings to be "to-the-point" and no-nonsense, but at the same time, I want them to be entertaining so that they grip attention. By entertaining I don't only mean funny, slang-ish, or humourous.

So how do I strike a balance between a formal tone and an informal tone? I end up writing either full-formal or full-informal.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. What's the context for your writing? Blog posts? A novel? Academic writing? Business? This will help us answer your question. – Lauren Ipsum Aug 20 '14 at 9:54
I've put this on hold until Lauren's question can be answered; will reopen when we have context. – Neil Fein Aug 21 '14 at 0:26
Ah, sure. I author articles on a certain topic. I just need the directives for ideal article posts that usually have proper structure and logical backing of assertions. – Abhimanyu Aug 21 '14 at 12:06
