So you’ve decided to start writing a story, but you don’t know what to do and what to avoid. In this video, I will give you tips and best practices for creative fiction writing. I cover topics such as precision of language, limiting adverbs, eliminating “that” in adjective clauses, using a variety of sentence types, and deferring judgment of your own work. Writing is an art – a craft that can be learned. I hope this video will help you get off on the right foot. If you want to hear more about the writing craft, I recommend checking out On Writing by Stephen King on Audible.
