To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

1. Start with a story.

2. Start with a question.

3. Play with the use of first, second, and third person narrative.

4. Talk it through.

5. Write the outcome you want first-by beginning with the ending.

6. Write about things you know.

7. Be incredibly specific.

8. After you’ve written your essay, go back and delete the first and the last paragraph.

9. Mimic great writers you like.

10. Write less and link more.

But don't put a lot of links in. A lot of links just makes the reader's eyes glaze over.

Otherwise, these are excellent rules of thumb.
