The Reluctant Author


All writing is generated from ideas but ideas are easily forgotten

— Write ideas down when

they occur!

Ideas come at anytime, anywhere. A name, A title, a character, a piece of conversation spoken or overheard.

 It is surprising what a fertile imagination can do with snippets.

Remember to question your writing:-

Ask WHO, WHAT, WHY, WHERE, HOW and WHEN to develop characters and move the story forward. To be Creative add an IF to the mix

— Choose your words carefully and question their strength. Too weak and the writing loses pace. Too strong and the work appears overwritten.
