On Fridays, we like to share writing tips and tricks with our readers. We hope this section will encourage and inspire you to continually improve as a writer.
Writing Tip – Get in Tune With Your Senses
Sight, smell, sound, taste and touch. Make a point to examine each sense in your daily activities so that you may apply your observations to your writing. When you incorporate feeling into your writing, you are able to move pages and move readers. As readers, we all want a story that takes control of us, and that begins with feeling the meaning of the words.
Writing Prompt – Endings
While some books’ endings satisfy us, others leave us wanting more and others leave us full of questions. Maybe the ending was confusing, or perhaps it just wasn’t the direction you would have taken the story. Think of a book that left you feeling unsure at the ending. Rewrite the last chapter and write a new conclusion to the story.
