Friday Round-Up - #226

The Renegade Writer shares her method for writing articles. Raisin bread plays an interesting part in the process. :)

Writers: How do you organize your thoughts before writing an article or scene? As a SOTP writer, I'm not big on outlines. However, I usually know the beginning and the end of a story/article.

Readers: Do you like articles with lots of sub-headings and sidebars? What makes an article grab and hold your interest? Lots of quotes, analogies, etc.?

Have a blessed weekend!

Thanks, Susan, good tips from Linda. Hope you are doing well.

Hi Susan .. I like articles with sub-headings etc ... I also like short paragraphs - they are easier to comprehend and take in ...

Analogies sometimes, and some quotes - but not too many ...

You too have a great weekend - cheers Hilary

I do enjoy the posts over at The Renegade Writer. Have to hop over and read this one, thanks. I don't outline when I write fiction other than loose ideas in my head. I may, however, do an informal list or outline for non fiction.

Happy weekend! :)

Hi Linda - I thought she did a good job.

Hi Hilary - Lots of white space helps keep the reader from feeling overwhelmed as well.

Hi Karen - Yes, we know about pantsing, don't we, partner?
