On the footsteps of my post regarding “show don’t tell” I’m now thinking about another truism for the novice writer. It’s short, sweet and therefore easy to remember, expressed here via the Whims iPhone app.
Your poem should sound like natural, yet notable, speech. If it’s a clunky string of adjectives you’ve still got revising to do. As with all good advice, it’s easier to give than to follow, but I’m thoroughly enjoying the effort and the WRIT 100 journey.
This post is a short interlude between my continuing Happiness Project ruminations. I was feeling inspired to create a motivational poster, which I will define as an image with an accompanying truism. Here’s mine!
Create one and share it with us!
I have a million things in the fire right now. It’s ironic that I’m currently writing a short story on how I recently dropped my UVic night class in an attempt to simplify my life, and yet I keep filling up the space with a million other things. Alas, we humans are odd creatures.
With the million and one things on my mind, keeping me awake, a truism arrived from somewhere in my super conscious and I was inspired to share – Laughter is not the enemy of progress.
