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 Writing Process
Play around with your writing process. Change the font size so the words are larger in front of your eyes. Maybe use a different font to show what emotions are in the scene you are depicting. In the middle of a piece, start a new topic on a fresh sheet of paper to get that clean, fresh-start feeling. Take time when you are finished with your writing session to examine your choice of words, font and size. Each of these factors will offer a sense of direction for where your story is heading.
Writing Prompt – Surroundings
Take a look around and take in all of your surroundings. Make sure to focus on one thing, a building, a tree, the scenery, anything. Write a paragraph or two describing what you see in full detail and an additional paragraph explaining the history of what you see.
