Introduction to Discovering How You Write!

This is one of the sections that I’ll be addressing! In this section, I’ll be writing about:

  • Description
  • Action
  • Dialogue
  • Genres
  • Reader’s attention
  • Persons
  • Scenes
  • Showing
  • Telling

If you want me to write about anything else, comment below, or ask in the Forum!

Discovering How You Write is a series of ideas I’ve come up with to help you find out how best you write. Everyone writes differently, so certain styles, genres etc. that work brilliantly for someone won’t be so good for someone else. These posts try to both help you find out how best you write, and, if you want to get better at another type of writing, help you improve!

Description, Action and Dialogue: In these posts, I’ll give you exercises to do with how you write descriptively, with action and conversations. Some people find it easier to tell a story through speech. Others find it easy to describe the setting. Others enjoy telling the readers about what the characters are doing. Some people will find a blend of two or three. (Personally, I’ve never been good at description. I work best with dialogue — probably because I’m a chatterbox!)

Genres: In these posts, I’ll give you exercises to do with different types of genres. Some people will prefer certain genres over others. I, for example, adore fantasy, but can’t write a horror book to save my life. If you ever want an exercise about a certain genre, comment, email or post in the Forum!

Reader’s Attention: In these posts, I’ll give you exercises to do with how you can keep your reader’s attention.

Persons: In these posts, I’ll give you exercises to do with different persons (i.e. first, second and third). First person is the ‘I/we’ form, second person is the ‘you’ form, and third person is the ‘He/she/they’ form.

Scenes: In these posts, I’ll give you exercises to do with writing different types of scenes.

Showing and Telling: In these posts, I’ll give you exercises to do with whether ‘Show don’t tell’ really is the best way to write, or if getting a mixture of the two is better.

I’ll also be writing posts about the other main sections:

I absolutely adore writing fiction (mostly fantasy). I’m not published yet, but I’ve had quite a bit of experience in writing and know it can be really hard to stick with it, especially when you’re in high school revising for exams. My blog has some ideas to help you become the best writer you can be.
