Writers Tips

Writing Tips

  1) Relax!! -- breathing, meditation before starting. Don't take

yourself too seriously.

2) Identify those passages that you are particularly fond of and 

get rid of them. Those are the passages that call the readers' 

attention to what a good writer you are.

3) Be fearless. Try things you know might not work.

4) Never forget that writing well and creatively is not easy. If it

were, everyone would be a bestseller.

5) Don't get caught up in conveying how much you know on a given

subject. Rely instead on your characters' actions and feelings to

carry the story
