Wright's Writing Corner: My Writing Tips

 
Since we started last week with John's Writing Tips, I thought I would post my writing tips. These are not tips for new writers, but the cumulated wisdom I've scraped together for myself. I shared them with some writing friends once before, and they found them helpful. Hope you do, too!


Writing Tips

 

Two Strings:             Two separate issues need to be going in each scene.

 

The Trick:         Raising expectations in one direction but having the story go in the opposite direction. It sounds simple, but it may be the most useful writing technique of all...the book Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier is just the trick over and over again.
