TIP OF THE WEEK

Improve Your Writing

 

1. A quick and effective CRAFT technique.

The quality of your writing can leap when you start to break paragraphs as you do chapters, aiming to separate them at a moment.

 

2. A pro tip every CRITIQUE group can use.

Instead of thinking of your critique group as a place where writers come to get advice, think of it as a place where you all come to get feedback.

3. A CREATIVITY tip for your inner critic.

If we stop labeling our writing attempts as “successes” and “failures,” and remain open to the possibility of revisiting “failed” themes and reinventing stalled works, the possibilities for artistic reincarnation are endless.

 

4. A perspective on making any CONCEPT your own.
