Welcome to Tuesday Tips - a weekly blog post for busy writers!
Here is a Tuesday Tip to improve your writing.
Refresh an older piece of writing by bringing it current or tidying it up a bit.
Try this:ry this:
1 - Identify a social media post you made that was especially popular.
How can you update or add to the post to make it relevant again? Has your viewpoint changed? Is there more information to add? Can you use the same format on a new unrelated post?
2 - Take a look at a piece of writing that you may have abandoned because you lost interest or didn’t feel it was “good enough.”
Have you gained new skills that can help you polish this piece? Perhaps you’ve added some life experiences that will help you flesh out the story.
3 - Rewrite a scene from a different point of view.
If your story has an accident scene told by the victim, write it again from the rescuer’s point of view. A wedding scene would be viewed differently by the mother of the bride than by a spinster cousin. Even stormy weather will be perceived one way by a snow sports enthusiast and another by a delivery man.
Reworking a piece of writing can improve both the work and the skill of the writer. Give it a try. You’ve already laid the groundwork. Who knows? It may springboard another project.
These tricks have helped me. Do you have any tips that help you stay on writing track? Feel free to share them.
