Name one thing you do really well and describe it in detail. (like sports or drawing or dancing that they are good at) Keep the Review Focus Skills in mind while writing this.

Review Focus Skills

Just like a construction worker uses a toolbox to hold all his special tools, so does a writer. The only difference is a writer isn’t using hammers, screwdrivers and pliers. Instead, they use good writing techniques.

Tool One – Use adjectives and adverbs to add detail and help the reader make vivid mind pictures of what’s happening

Tool Two – Use dialogue to bring the characters to life. Include

actions, thoughts, and feelings.

Tool Three – Correctly punctuate dialogue with commas and

quotation marks.

Tool Four – Use linking/transition words to show the reader the piece is moving.

Tool Five – Use Voice – emotions, personality, confidence.

Tool Six – Tell the whole story – BME.

Tool Seven – Write a beginning. Bait your readers by describing the setting or characters.

Happy Reading 🙂
