1) WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU KNOW
in the beginning, writers always get told 'write what you know', but this is good advice. Use settings, characters, background and language that you're already familiar with and create new stories that you already know. This is like using research you've already done. And remember, your background, what you bring to the act5 of writing, is as valid as what anyone else can bring.
2) WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW
Use your imagination to create new situations, new characters, new relationships, even new worlds. Choose +to write about a different period in history, or a place trhat you're not familiar with. Where your imagination needs help fill in the gaps with research. The best thing about being a creative writer is 'creating'.
3)READ WIDELY AND WELL
writers love reading. Make yourself familiar with the published landscape of writing in your chosen field, whether it's modern poetry, literary fiction, thrillers, shoet stories or fantasy.
4)HOOK YOUR READERS
It's important to hook your readers straight away. Your opening sentence or paragraph should encourage them to continue, perhapsby making them laugh, or exciting their curiosity, or just making them want to find out what happens next.
5) GET YOUR READERS TALKKING
