7 Tips to Improve Your Writing

 

“Showing and Telling”. Often in writing, we know when a character is angry or sad. You can write: Sarah was upset.

Okay, great, she’s upset, but is there a better way to show us that she was upset? Did she bang her fist on the table or clinch it? Was her face distorted? What were her movements? Did she run away, slam the door, and storm out the room? These are all things we as authors want to show our audience. I know for the Sims, we can see visually, but don’t rely on pictures only to tell your story. Write as if this was a traditional novel, without any pictures.

Happy Simming!
