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 – Smooth Transitions
Never write to a stopping point. Always begin the next section before you quit for the day. Keeping a consistent tone from day to day is difficult. Stopping in the middle, or after you get started on a new section will help ensure your tone smoothly transitions over line and chapter breaks.
Writing Prompt – Fork in the Road
Many moments in life require a decision between taking one path or another. Think back to a previous situation in your life when you had to choose between one course of action and another. Now, write two stories or poems about your experience: one that attempts to captures what actually happened as a result of your choice, and another that postulates what could have happened if you had chosen differently.
The photos are always inspiring, but this one is especially motivating for me. A particular “fork in the road” came to mind instantly. You’ve motivated me to write these two pieces. Thank you for the idea.
