Practical Prompt 9-25-15

WriteOwls logo 150 whiteYou finally have a moment to write, but what to do with your limited time? Here’s a practical prompt to kickstart the story you’re working on right now. The clock is ticking, people. Start writing.

It can be hard to know the best place to begin a scene (or chapter, or book) before it’s written, but your first instinct isn’t always the best. Go back over a scene you have already written and try deleting a paragraph or two at the beginning. Does removing that segment take away something vital from the story? If not, strengthen the scene by starting it as close to the important action as possible.
