Question and answer
What advice would you give to a developing writer about brainstorming ideas and planning the overall quality of an essay? What would you use to justify your position?
Writer's Helper offers these writing tips so your book will be the highest quality possible. People respect high quality writing. If you deliver your work in a strong and error-free package, people take you seriously. [ Your message comes through clearly. Your words reach people's hearts and minds. Your writing is more powerful than the sword. It inspires, educates, entertains. If the
writing is weak, readers say, "So what?" If the writing has errors, readers are confused or distracted. Compelling, clear, error-free writing is what people expect when they buy a book. Give them what they expect. Readers will recommend your book to their friends, give it as a gift, and wait expectantly for your next publication. Reader by reader you will change your world. What an awesome responsibility! What a wonderful privilege! With respect for language I offer these writing tips.The first tip may sound strange coming from an editor.... Writing Tip #1: Put off editing Each of us works at writing on two levels:a creative, unconscious level and a critical, conscious level. The unconscious produces creative and powerful words and images. It makes surprising and original connections. It shuts down if the critical "editor" part of your mind goes to work too soon.If your High School English teacher's voice runs through your mind as you write, if you worry about spelling, grammar, or how to sell your book while you write, you are writing with a dull pencil. There are many books written on how to unlock your unconscious and let the writing flow. Here are just a few ideas Brainstorm words or images about your topic. Don't stop to evaluate their worth. Keep writing down ideas. When you can't think of another word, wait a while. Often the most powerful idea will surface after you have cleared all the less valuable ideas out of the way. Write a page or two with your eyes shut. It doesn't matter if you can't read what you've written. You are giving your mind permission to make "mistakes" and just get on with it. Write with music in the background. Experiment to find the style that you like. I prefer baroque or classical music. ]
