Took a week off of the alphabet tips series for some concentration on querying. Over there you can read my and many other’s wonderful pitches and see the behind the scenes tricks to making them better. Since it’s been a while (a while in internet time) you can find the other tips here. Now, let’s commence with the next edition of writing tips. The late middle of the alphabet has some tricky letters to generate ideas from, but by golly I’ll manage it! Without further adieu, here is the newest set:
Patience is a Virtue. The writing process is long and involved. No matter the route you take for publishing, having patience will get you a long way.
Quick, brown fox jumped over the lazy log. Diversify your writing with sensory details and descriptors. It’ll give your story flavor.
Read! All of the things! Or watch things that inspire you. By soaking in the hard work of another storyteller, you can learn from their tribulations and triumphs.
Stay True to Yourself. Don’t let the current market or a bad review or naysayers get you down. The story you wrote was something you were meant to tell. Never forget that.
Time Management. Find time no matter what your schedule is to write. You are responsible for your story, so set deadlines and goals to accomplish. Each little milestone gets you a step closer to success.
Stick around! The final installment of A to Z writing tips will hit the blog next week!
