    Creating A Stickied Writing Tips Thread

    Post by Roxanne on Fri Jun 05, 2009 12:12 pm

    Why?

    It would get the forum to work together to create a list of tips for writers of all levels to help them improve their work. It would also provide a list of things for people to comment on when reading and C&Cing someone's work.

    What do I have to do?

    If you have a piece of advice or writing tip you'd like to share mention it here and when the thread is created it will be added.

    **If you got the tip from a book or magazine and not through your own experience or from friends please state the source as we don't want to be done for copyright - kthxbai**

    1. If you can’t think of any good ideas of your own, re-write the plot of something you have already read – of course you won’t be able to publish any of it but it will help you to practise writing.
    2. You should practise writing everyday – only through practise will you improve.
    3. Avoid starting with dialogue.
    4. Show, don’t tell.
    5. Use sensory details.
    6. In Fiction Writing don't use real people.
