Tip O'Day #266 - Have No Fear

Guest blogger Raquel Monday has a writing blueprint.

Never be afraid to delve into the unknown; it will remain unknown if you never venture into it. I write genre-bending books and enjoy going from one to another. I usually write two books at one time, one being intense and one being a children's fairytale or poetry.

When I get stumped as to what direction the storyline is going I use a sketchpad envisioning where I want the characters to go and how they will get to the end of the story, sometimes this helps me with the words if I have a visual to go by. Kind of like a blueprint.

  1. I thought I knew nothing about Poetry. I have won quite a few poetry contests.

    Have no fear in trying different writing styles-you just might find yourself better at something else you had no idea you could write. Whether Romance, Mystery, Poetry, or Action packed Thrillers.
