Bite Size Writing Tips

Watch TV And Be Inspired!

In many houses, the TV is the focal point of the room and we spend a lot of our relaxation time watching it. Visit your local newsagents and you’ll see a lot of shelf space taken up with TV magazines. Most of these have letters pages so if coverage of a documentary programme has inspired you to take a course, this is just the sort of letter which will stand out. Or if a soap opera’s storyline has touched you or irritated you, write a letter about it and earn yourself some cash. 

TV programmes are also an excellent source of ideas. Have you ever watched a TV drama that doesn’t end the way you thought it would? Was your ending better? You can take your ending idea and work it into your own story.

A funny incident on a video clips show may stir a memory of something funny that happened to you. Lots of magazines publish humorous anecdotes.

An historical programme about a time in the past can start you thinking ‘what if that didn’t happen?’ An alternative history could make an interesting and compelling book.
