And we’re back for another day of celebrating! Fancy looking at BG’s book. Take a look over here.
So, question for November 6th is what is your number one piece of advice for someone wanting to write?
Read, read, read. The more words you take in, well-written words (please don’t read trash) the better your own work will be.
(My second piece of advice would be ‘show don’t tell.’ This means showing through a character’s actions something to do with them, without just telling the reader. For example you could say: ‘I was nervous.’ You’re telling the reader something. How about this? ‘My palms were sweating and my pulse was racing.’ The reader will know that they’re nervous, but without just being told. That’s what writing is about: words.)
And well done again to BG!
(Sorry not to have looked at anyone else’s blogs today – been a down day and only just managed to get the two posts out today. I promised to write every day, and I promised to celebrate BG. However I’m feeling. Hoping tomorrow will be better.)
