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 – Edit, Edit, Edit
Eliminate your weakest links…through revision. Any chapter from your book should be good all by itself. Let no weak link chapter (or sentence) exist in your work. Rewrite until your chapters stand strong individually. Just think of the impact they will have as a whole.
Writing Prompt – Brainstorm
Brainstorm words or images about your book’s topic. Don’t stop to evaluate each word’s worth; just keep writing down ideas. When you can’t think of another word, wait a little while. Often the most powerful idea will surface after you have cleared all the less valuable ideas out of the way. Run with it and write.
