The weekend is here, and you know what that means!
No, it's not time for that!
It's time for YOU to sit down in front of your computer, and start your first sentence!
Yep, with all the hours in the weekend, you shouldn’t have any trouble starting your writing project. Sit down with that first cup of coffee on Saturday morning, and pound out that first sentence.
After you’ve done that, by all means, go out and enjoy your day. You’ll enjoy it even more, knowing that your project has begun. You will have written your first sentence, and, while you’re out, you’ll be thinking about your second sentence! What would be a great follow-up to that first sentence? What story are you telling? What information are you trying to share?
If you’re telling a fictional story, think of your main characters. Place them in a situation, and let them react the way they would react in real life. Picture in your mind the actions taking place in your story, and describe them. Break down the picture so much that your reader can put him- or her-self in the story, and can see what’s happening! Take the time to describe it in superb detail!
If you’re sharing information, describe step-by-step the actions you would need to take to arrive at the desired solution. Don’t leave anything out – include everything necessary, so that your reader will be able to come to the same answer.
If you’re writing a biography, then by all means, begin at the beginning! Describe the person’s life, family, and actions that person took to make themselves worthy of a biography written by you!
The possibilities are endless this weekend! So, get cracking, and write that first sentence! You’ll be glad you did!
