What is YOUR story about?

Rule #1: Prime the Pump (to get the well to rise)

Read something from your favorite author(s), like Jack Morgan (hehe), that you want to emulate. Note: you don’t have to re-invent the wheel!

After you’ve sparked the fire in your brain (by reading that awesome author, ahem, consider what story you want to tell and then go on and Google the sucker! Research your setting: find real-life stories similar to what your topic is about. As writers, and teachers, we’re known to beg, steal, and borrow – material (for writing, people!) Come on now! 😉

Now don’t go and start feeling all guilty…I’m just sayin’ to get some creative inspiration from other people’s stories…hey, it worked for Shakespeare! Did you know that Romeo and Juliet was actually a remake? It went back to the garden of Eden…the beginning of time. Do Adam & Eve ring a bell? 😉

Rule #2: “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words” – author unknown

Need I say more?! Go find some AMAZING pictures and write every word you can think of that will describe the picture in detail! You’ll be glad you did! Trust me. That’s all the time I have for now. Lots of luck to ya, kiddos. Have a blessed, fantastic day!
