Writers are apprentices. We should continually be working on our craft. Perfect it? Nah. But we can always improve.

 

This wealth-of-tips article was quite a find. The 12 tips are like tiny gold nuggets. If you apply even one,  it should actually take your writing--as it is right now--and color it golden.

 

A few nuggets:

 

o  People love STORIES--don't be afraid to tell one

 

o  Apply a little ALLITERATION - Using the same letter or sound to start multiple words in the same sentence. (EX: Write the way you want)

 

o  Consider CADENCE - Play with syllabication. Just as in music think "rhythm"  (Quick and the Dead)

 

o  Power of THREES - Give examples, adjectives, and sentences in three's (3 little pigs, 3 wishes, etc.)

 

o Longish SENTENCE, then a short one. The short one will sound TRUE.

 

Read through all the tips to pick up some new ideas to add more color to your own writing.
