Writing allows you to share the wonders of your imagination. But many lack the confidence to express their thoughts in words. So here are 10 tips to help those who’d like to start writing, erotic or otherwise…
1 - Storytelling is the gift of new imaginings
We read stories because they give us a chance to imagine something we’ve never thought of before. A writer gives their readers a recipe of settings, characters and events and says: here, visualise this.
Writing is meant to be read. Seduce your reader, don’t baffle them with complicated words or overly complicated plots, or drench them in a deluge of descriptive adjectives. Allow your readers’ imaginations to fill the gaps between your words.
Don’t worry if you’re sexually inexperienced and you’re writing about sex. I’m pretty sure sci-fi authors don’t own spaceships and J.K Rowling has never cast a magic spell. It’s far more important to be able to use your imagination to create compelling happenings, ones readers will care enough about to invest their precious time and mental energy to recreate inside their heads. And if you really want to become more creative, sign up for improv classes.
I write - a lot. Stories and blog posts and product descriptions and newsletter articles, and I just learned I will soon be collaborating on a D&D campaign for the first time with a brilliant writer. I’m always looking to improve my writing style and technique, and this article has some great tips!
