Day 4 Story - Some Topics Just Sneak Up on You

When I sat down at the computer this morning, I didn’t plan to write this story. You can see the story at my 365 Stories in a Year blog. Anyway, it started with a quick thought about planning ahead. Where the wedding story idea came from I don’t know but it arose pretty much full blown when I wrote the first line.

This is another great example of how just starting can create a flow of story writing ideas. I teach this a lot to my students. Just write something. Break the mental conscious censor you have that keeps telling you that story is no good. Let it flow. You’ll be amazed at the results.

A few writing tips on this story. Watch for foreshadowing items and for items that should warn you that a problem is ahead. The dialogue is clear and crisp with no adverbial tags. Ask yourself if this is what you expected to have happen in the end.

The other key is to get your writing out of the way with early, then go on to other projects. Now I don’t have to worry about finding time to write today’s story. It’s done. On to other things, like walking the dog.
