PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

We know it’s probably hard to believe, but the first official day of spring is March 20. Has your writing been in hibernation all winter? Just like any skill, you should always be looking for ways to strengthen your writing, whether it’s through workshops, peer review or writing exercises like the following: 

 GIVE YOUR CHARACTERS A VOICE 

Finish the following with three or more sentences in the voice of a 59-year-old man:

“ I could have avoided all that trouble if only I remembered to …” 

 UNIQUE BRAINSTORMING TOOLS 

Get a dry-erase board or chalkboard and jot down different story ideas. Keep them on the board for at least 24 hours, then revisit your brainstorm. No idea is too ridiculous … and can be easily erased after you consider them for a bit.

 EASIER SAID THAN DONE ...

Begin writing soon after you wake up. Grab breakfast, make yourself some coffee or tea, but DON'T check any electronic devices until you have written five pages.

 UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY 

Write about something that is usually fraught with cliché – Christmas, for example – without resorting to a single familiar image. (In other words, no chestnuts roasting on an open fire.)

 

Once your writing style is refreshed, call Archway Publishing to learn how you can turn your work into a published book. Plus, we’ll help you warm up to the idea of publishing through this month’s special offer:
