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 – Read the Tips
Every Friday we put out a tip and prompt, read the writing tips and take what you will from them. Apply each tip to your own technique and writing style. You may toss some to the side because you already knew them, but others you should keep in a memory file to guide you through the whirlwind process of writing a book. Every little bit helps!
Writing Prompt – Dimensions
Often, writers use dimensional tools to engage the reader’s mind. Perhaps they write a movie about a book about a man making a movie about a book. Sometimes they write songs about stories about songs about people writing stories. While this type of writing can be elusive to your average reader, it can be very meaningful to those who latch on to the piece, and, in the very least, it can be a great exercise for writers. Think about the images we experience in our young minds when we notice the similarities between solar systems and molecules. Try to write the most confusing short story you have ever written and see what happens.
