TUESDAY 10 THINGS TO READ, WRITE. AND REPEAT

At least someone is interested
in doing the laundry ;)

Curiosity might have played merry-hell with the cat but it’s the only thing that keeps the reader turning the pages.

Tuesday 10 this week is hosted by my New Year’s resolutions! :D

I read them every day before I start to write:

1.    Read. Remember to make time to enjoy the experience.
2.    What are you doing to build common ground between the reader and the MC?
3.    Visualise the scene – remember to see it from the MC’s pov.
4.    Write.
5.    What did you include today that might surprise the reader?
6.    Read your work out loud - if possible listen when someone else reads it to you
7.    Use every paragraph to add depth to the character, build conflict or move the plot along
8.    Remember the ending – keep it in mind to keep the narrative line taut.
9.    Share your work with trusty writing friends from before you’ve written the first page – it is easier to share an outline.
10. Enjoy writing - celebrate the time you take to spend writing.

IS THERE SOMETHING YOU REMIND YOURSELF TO THINK OF WHEN YOU SIT DOWN TO WRITE?
