Writing Prompt: How to…

You’d be surprised how hard it is to describe how to do something in a clear and logical manner and still keep it interesting. Some of the best books I’ve read have combined “How to” with narrative that teaches you something and also tells a story. For instance, “Like Water For Chocolate” by Laura Esquivl, a much loved novel combines a family history, love story and monthly recipes. I’ve read the book a dozen times and now know how to make cream fritters…

When you add an underlying theme to stories, you can create a different world for your readers and make the story more entertaining. Try writing a story that revolved around teaching something. Like, “To ride a bike…” “The Secret to Swimming”, “10 ways to survive the winter”

You get the idea…

Have fun.
