    Top writing tip number 3:

    Don’t give up. Writing is hard work and sometimes it doesn’t always work, but don’t let that stop you. If something doesn’t work then go back and try and figure out why it’s not working and see how you can put it right. And maybe you need to change the viewpoint, maybe you are telling it in the third person and you need to tell it in the first person, maybe you can write the story as a series of letters or diary entries. How you do it is entirely up to you, but try and find a way of making the story you want to tell work.

    Read. Read and then read some more. Try and read stories in a number of different genres and from a number of different authors, that way you get exposure to different types of writing that might inspire your own writing.
