Writing Hack #18 of 33—Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Who Crave to Be to Published
Writing about what happened yesterday is a really excellent writing hack for practicing the art of storytelling. And, writing is mostly the art of storytelling. So to get some great practice at telling a story, write about what happened yesterday, or last week, or something very recent. Writing about normal things when telling a story gives you practice making even the ordinary, exciting.
You drove to the store yesterday to buy some groceries and then you decided to stop at Starbucks. Something inside told you to grab a cappuccino at Starbucks. Work at making that intriguing and interesting. Use adjectives to describe the weather, the car, the feeling, and the people in the store. Breathe life with your words to make the story come alive—to make it seem real to the reader.
Every action has a story. Even if you talk about a character you met in the store, a person you ran into, or the type of drink you bought. Maybe you went to Starbucks and you talk about the different types of coffee. Perhaps you talk about the people in the biggest “living room in the world—Starbucks.” Good storytelling finds a way to make the most boring of things exciting.
