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 – Your Favorite Scene
When developing a story, there is usually a line or scene that particularly strikes you. Develop this element first. Trying to write toward this exciting tidbit may only bore you and burn unnecessary fuel. Set aside time to thoroughly look at the most encouraging sentence and element. Until this element runs its course and you understand its place within the whole of your work, it will surely bother you as you’re writing other sections.
Writing Prompt – Father’s Day
Father, Dad, Daddy, Pops, Old Man – just a few of the names we might call our dads. Our dads are a compilation of our best friend, our hero, Mr. Fix-it and of course, our dad. This Sunday is Father’s Day, and what better way to celebrate your dad than by using your gift as a writer. Think back to your favorite memory of your father. Was it building a sandcastle with him on vacation? Or maybe playing ball with him in your yard? Whatever the memory, write a short story about it, include as many details as you remember. Let your dad understand how important that memory is to you through your writing.
