There are hundreds of writing tips in the world, whether they were in books, online, interviews, advice from other writers. It does not end the amount of tips one can look up about writing.
So I’ve decided that I am going to put up a writing tip every Tuesday, either from the books I’ve been reading or whenever I’m researching something online and find something that I feel will benefit you guys as well.
So for this week’s Tuesday Tip, I’m going to reference the book I’ve been reading to help with my Moonlight revisions titled Manuscript Makeover: Revision Techniques No Fiction Writer Can Afford to Ignore by Elizabeth Lyon
In one tip that she gives writers in writing the beginning of their novel is as follows
“I don’t recommend that any unpublished novelist begin with one character alone, because the character will inevitably turn inwards, which means lots of telling rather than showing” – Elizabeth Lyon
Hope this tip is helpful to you ^^
Until next time
