Creative writing techniques…

Good evening my loyal followers,

I hope you are all well.

I’ve been thinking about creative writing techniques recently and thought I would share a couple of ideas that I have with you. For all you writer’s out there, these techniques are bound to help you along the way.

Take an object, any object. You have one in your mind? Now in its simplest term, it could just be a fork or a wine glass or maybe a newspaper. Now bring it to life with words. That fork is suddenly not just a fork anymore but a tool used to fuel our appetite and feed the mouth of our young. You see where I’m going with this?

Another technique is to turn the sound down on the television and create your very own running commentary. Describe the actions of the people you see and their surroundings. This is one of my favourites as you can add a slice of comedy!

Let me know how you get on and if you have any other suggestions for creative writing experiments.

Thank you as always to each of you for your loyal support. As we speak, I am writing the penultimate chapter in my new crime novel. Watch this space!

Take care

Mark
