Personal Experience / Reflective writing

20
Tips
  • Title Make sure your title sums up the central
    idea/focus/lesson.
  • Show not tell. You felt afraid? Describe location
    in way which makes it seem sinister.
  • Be prepared to be critical of yourself. Self
    mocking can be humbling.

21
Short Story Writing
  • You must develop character, setting AND plot.
  • You can write in 1st person or 3rd and you can
    choose to write a flash forward in present tense
    but you must be consistent.
  • You must know the rules for presenting dialogue.

22
Tip
  • Free Indirect Style can be seen in some
    opening lines.
  • Rather than reporting thought, it is written as
    if we have a first person narrator but no I
    appears.
  • The door bell rang. Another visitor. Someone else
    to feign sympathy, to present the look of concern
    with glassy eyes and half attentive ears. She
    could not bear it. Enough was enough.
