Tips: Use descriptive verbs. Don’t have your character just “walk” somewhere. Have them amble, stride, stomp, march, etc. Show their emotions through their actions.

Thought for the day: Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. …If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.” – Nikki Giovanni

Jumpstart: Write a paragraph where every sentence starts with a different letter of the alphabet. Extra credit if you keep them in sequence.
