Starting with an introduction, each new chapter will follow the alphabet, beginning at A-b through to Y-z. You can find every chapter right here and on our Linked In page. Take a look, download the pdf and drop in each week to get a top up of inspiration.
Introduction: The A-Z of writing
Any writer knows that it’s not always easy to get started. Sometimes the world seems to be divided into writers and people who want to be writers…
Before you begin, think about how you are going to grab your reader’s attention…
Do this, don’t do that. Deadlines demand timely headlines. Alliteration and rhyme, the techniques of poetry, do we use them or abuse them?
Eggs over easy. Remembering business trips to the US and staying in hotels where they offered that almost endless list of American ways of having eggs for breakfast.
Gotcha! is the headline many British people think of when headlines are mentioned.
How do you make a thought more vivid? Metaphors are certainly one way to do it.
Coming soon on Friday 5 June 2020.
