The Writing Round-Up {6.01.19}

Welcome to June and the June 1, 2019 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up.

Every week, I gather tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes and put them right here all in one place.

Be sure that you have joined my email list so you never miss an update!

Now, onto this week's tips!

Self-Doubt & Writing:

ALL writers face doubts and fears in their writing -- even when we feel like we're the ONLY one. Want to see what I mean? Jim Dempsey explains more in his latest "Fiction Therapy" post on Writer UnBoxed.

Writing Rehearsal:

Writers will often spend a lot of time thinking about their writing before committing words to the page. Are we allowing our students this opportunity too? Alan Write explores in his post, "The Critical Think Before the Ink."

Adding Action:

There are many times in writing when we (or our student-writers) need to pick up the pace of the action. "How to Write Action Scenes That Will Thrill Your Writer" shares some great tips on how to make this happen in a way that is natural and engaging.
