You have made it to day four of my nine creative writing lessons. If you have made it through the previous three and have come back to a fourth, thank you. You’ve answered questions, wrote to yourself, and written a story based on a prompt.
This week you will write about your expertise.
Sit down and think for a moment about something that you are able to do really well. This could be something as simple as washing dishes, or something as complicated as selling stocks. Now, write out a few paragraphs, or as many as you want, detailing some important aspect of your expertise. Make sure that you assume your reader knows nothing about this task.
You don’t want you writing to sound like a dry explanation of something. Try to write you explanations in a creative way, as if you were verbally explaining the process. Break down each step so that your reader can understand what to do, without using a bunch of jargon.
That’s your lesson for the day. Get started and have fun.
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect. – Anais Nin
