Writing Tip & Prompt: 2/8/2013

Writing Tip - ResearchOn 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 – Research

Research is a must when it comes to writing; you want to cover all of your bases when you’re writing about anything. Come publishing time, readers won’t be happy if you get your facts wrong or you’re unclear or unknowledgeable about something. Unhappy readers can lead to bad reviews, which in turn creates hesitation towards buying your future books. Research what you’re writing about and you’ll have happy and impressed readers who are likely to recommend your book to others.

Writing Prompt – Values

Think about the values of your parents. Can you remember a time when your father or mother taught you their morals by example? Perhaps your dad spoke of patience as he taught you how to shave, or maybe your mom tried to instill relationship sense by telling you about how she met your father. Now, write a story or poem about your experience and the lessons you learned.

    This is so completely spot on target! I have read some books where you could tell the author had no clue to the terrain of the area where I live. It was a story flow stopper and I couldn’t stop thinking about the inaccuracy to continue reading. I’ve not reviewed or purchased any more of his books.
