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 – Recognize Your Story’s Roots
Underneath all of the ideas and storytelling is the single purpose for sharing your story. Understanding the foundation and underlining meaning offers a direction to your writing and a deeper emotional connection with your readers. Are your readers able to understand your story’s roots from your writing? If not, edit your story or add to it so that readers can better connect with your story.
Writing Prompt – Dreams
Dreams are our subconscious imagination working overboard — mindful stories combining current emotions, recent thoughts and hopeful desires. Think of your latest dream. What was your subconscious trying to tell you? Write out the details you can remember and then finish the story.
