A simple E-Book to Improve Your writing

Please read it. Thanks a lot.

2o Ways to Improve Your Story




1.      Keep opinions to your self

Unless the narrator is an integral part of your storyline, descriptions in third-person narration should not contain opinionated words.

When you leave the description open to interpretation, the reader become more involved in the story process.

Let the reader use their imagination and form and opinion and they will be more willing to accept the character's reaction to setting.


2.      cause and effect

Cause naturally precedes effect in the real world. If you craft an action scene to model reality, the reader will be able to make a smooth visualization of the scent taking place.


3.      Activate the sense

Use the character's bodily senses to draw the reader in: sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch. Try to plant one or two sentences related to setting objects or characters and tie them to the senses of your protagonist.


4.      Emotional thermometer

Reader love body language. They should be slight movement and actions to give the reader a signal about how the characters feel.    (Show fear, nervousness, anxiety, etc.)Great writers study people and their body language.


5.      Verbs are friends 

Verbs are used to package the scene for the reader's imaginations. They should be concise and bring images or feeling to mind.

6.      Give the readers cookies

Do not make simple statements to tell the reader about a character's mood. Use subtle hints and indicators of emotion in your scenery to allow the opportunity for people to read your character by his or her actions.


7.      An interactive setting

Objects can convey messages to the reader. For example instead of using the car as a vehicle to get from the hospital to the airport, have some fun playing with the objects in your story.

8.      Organize a parade

Seat you characters on a bench and force them to watch the townspeople stroll through a crowded street during a festival. What would your character have to say about the sitting? Your descriptions should be in proportion to importance.


9.      Handing expositions

Exposition longer than three sentences should be broken up by using interior monologue, dialogue and descriptive action.


10.  Speech tags

Common speeches tags like, said, replied answered and returned do not draw the reader's attention and serve to denote the speaker. Use these common speech tags. When there is no change of mood and you need to show the speaker. The speech tag will give you an indication of how to present the body language.
