In high school, you are required to take various classes in English and Writing. While I, like most students didn’t enjoying the couple of thousand of words one must put on paper, I did well in my writing courses. I picked up on some tips from a book discussing writing contests.
When you are in school, your grade is based individually, but it is among many students’ scores, so it can be viewed as a fun little competition when trying to achieve the best grade you possibly can.
Take some steps to improve your writing, and excel further than the rest of the class. Here’s how:
Start out strong. All too often, the reader will stop reading at the beginning because they do not feel that they will enjoy the story. Captivate your audience by writing strongly from the very beginning.
Create creative characters. Create strong characters that are set apart and believable. You want your readers to relate to one of the characters and follow their journey throughout the story.
Always remember to have a beginning, middle, and end to your story. You also want a central theme throughout the story. This ties the three parts of the story together, creating a flowing story that keeps readers captivated.
Avoid predictable endings. You know those movies and books where the ending is so predictable; you saw it from a mile away? Avoid those as much as possible. Brainstorm different endings that will leave your readers satisfied.
Proofread and double-check your work. Be sure to use English grammar software that will proofread for you. This however, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t check it manually, because you should! Go over it manually, reading out loud to make sure you do not have any errors.
