  2. What would be a good way to begin a creative writing essay?

    • Hey, Homer 🙂

      There are many ways to begin a creative writing essay. Since “creative” is the keyword, make sure your introductory sentence/paragraph dazzles your target readers. Give them good reason to want to spend time reading your work.

      Once you’ve impressed readers with your intro, though, do not drop the ball with the remainder of your writing. Write sentences and paragraphs in manageable chunks with easy-to-understand wording so your audience can digest what you’re trying to communicate. Always keep your work engaging so your readers’ minds and imagination can actively participate.

      Finally, wrap it up with a nice conclusion that embodies your writing’s key points (theme) so your readers leave feeling well fed by your words.

      Cheers, Homer, and great success with your writings!
