Bite Size Writing Tips

Keep it Short and Sweet

Whether you’re writing an article, short story, or novel, think about your opening paragraph very carefully in terms of length. Often, as writers, we’re keen to get going and ideas are flowing, so we don’t stop and pay attention to our paragraph lengths. But, think about it from the reader’s point of view. What will hook them the most? A short, sharp opening paragraph, or a great big block of words that they feel they’ve got to plough through?  It could put them off your writing straight away.
