Coach Teresa Advises Reading While Rewriting

Dear Writers,

Are you stressed out while rewriting your project?  Breathe. Drink water. Exercise.  And read, read, read.

Whatever genre you’re writing, give your characters new sparks by rereading your favorite book of the same genre.

Study how the author of that favorite book show:

  • what the protagonist wants (early in the story)–to connect with Reader
  • the authentic details in the setting, circumstances, vernacular
  • sensory details
  • dialogue and body language that reveals each character’s personality or what he/she wants to show
  • hooks, foreshadowing, metaphors
  • archetypes help move story forward
  • thematic threads

I’m cheering for you!

Sincerely,
Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan
