Today, I would like to begin giving writing tips! Starting at the beginning and moving through the writing process! I love writing! I shared my joy of writing with my first graders! My goal was to teach them that writing is a fun thing to do! I know some people have a special gift for writing, but I truly believe EVERYONE can write and have fun with it!
Tip #1 The Beginning Of Any Journey Starts With The First Step! The Beginning of Writing Starts With The First Word!
I know, you are sitting there, looking at a blank page and wonder–where will I begin! What can I possibly say! That can be a little scary! But don’t be scared!
Pick up your pen and write any word! Write another word and another! Before you know it YOU ARE WRITING!!! The words are just tumbling out and down onto your paper! See where these words take you–you may be surprised!!!! Sometimes we call this babbling! Having fun getting your ideas down! Letting them take shape! See where they lead!!
Many times writers write about what they know! I love my LifeBook for that. I love collecting my seeds and sometimes growing them into stories! (If you don’t know what a LifeBook is look under Activities for Kids–Create a LifeBook It’s really fun! It’s all about YOUR life!)
But, I also like to use my imagination! I love make-believe! An imagination is a wonderful thing! It can take you anywhere you want to go, do anything you want to do or be anything you want to be!!! How fun is that! Can you tell I love writing–see all the !!!!!
Just remember, there is no right or wrong! It’s just what ever the writer wants to say! Anything goes! What do you want to say???
See you next time for Tip #2
