There’s no right way to write; only the one that’s best for you. This will be a matter of trial and error.

  • Do you work best late at night, or early in the morning? Do you prefer silence or does music help?
  • Do you need coffee?
  • Would you want to write in bed (some writers do)?
  • Would a café or library be better for you?

Heightening your observations

Sometimes, the best inspiration comes after the first line, or more likely still, after writing a few pages

Remember: once you’ve reached the end, you can always go back and ‘add on’ or improve your beginning.

WEEK 3: WRITING IS EDITING

Rereading, reviewing and rewriting your work are crucial and often ongoing activities.

  • Do the characters come across vividly?
  • Is any of your word usage surprising? Does it help the reader to ‘see’ the characters?
  • Now that you look at it again do you think any of the descriptions are predictable and dull?
  • Are any of the words and phrases you have used too familiar?
