5 tips to Get More Creative with Your Writing from Writer's Digest

Fellow Writers,

I came across this article from Writer's Digest on 5 tips to be more creative in your writing. Check out the link here and tell me what you think in the comments below. 

I thought that they had some great rules.

I thought the insight to start out with tension was especially important.

I don't think we emphasize that enough as writers. So often we start with dialog or long info dumps...or just boring pieces.

I think that this is especially true in today's world. People get bored so easily. If you don't start out with tension, they'll just move on to the next book.

Ending each chapter with a cliff. I think all of us have fallen prey to the "I'll just read one more chapter" idea only to have the chapter end in such a way that we have to keep reading. 

Definitely another good tip.

What did you think?

  1. This is a great article! Thanks for sharing :)
    They are all really useful advice. Especially the second one, that you have to know your characters' wants. I also agree with you that it's good to end the chapter with a cliff. It really works.
    New GFC follower, I'd be glad if you did the same :)
