Good morning! Hope you are keeping well and safe.

Some things in life change; some stay the same – even laws, at the moment!

What has this to do with writing? Well, there are rules to writing fiction that do not change. Just as there are rules for drawing. I’ve been learning to draw recently – this is me practising the one-point perspective. 🙂

One point perspective

Before starting the drawing course, I didn’t know there was such a thing as a vanishing perspective! It was a revelation (apologies for my ignorance!).

Here’s an equivalent-ish rule for writing fiction: always keep the end in mind. Whatever happens in the story, keep the end in view. All your scenes and characters and ‘things that happen along the way’ must all be working towards that final point.

Hope you find that reminder helpful! If you have anything to add (or any writing tips for me!), please come on over to our Facebook Community group (if you don’t belong, you can request to join here – we’d love to have you).

Blessings to you all. Stay safe (and remember, following the rules will help!),
