3 TOP TIPS
Why are you writing?
Why are you set on writing this piece? Is it to help inform people about a cause or issue? Is it to tell a story yet untold? Whatever your reasoning, being focused on what you are trying to achieve will help you achieve it.
Bonus tip: Ask yourself what does success for your piece of writing look like? For some it’s to have a final draft, for others it’s boost a certain amount of traffic to their website.
2. Who are your audience?
Think about who your audience will be. How old are they? How much do they already know about the subject? It’s important to know your audience so you can tailor your writing.
3. Writing dialogue? Write for speaking out loud.
When writing dialogue, your script needs to be natural and authentic. The words on the page need to be written just as the characters would speak out loud. It seems obvious but it’s a skill that should be practised. This is a key difference between writing a storybook and a screenplay.
