Today I have been working on my script, I have managed to get to page 20 on a Word document- which I’m actually quite proud of, as studying for three A-levels takes up the majority of my time and I’m sure that anyone who is sitting A-levels or has sat them in the past will understand. It was when I was sitting in my English Literature A-level class today that I realised how words, no matter what form they may be written in, always carry some sort of meaning, even if it isn’t necessarily obvious at first. Every writer has chosen their words with so much care and detail in order to make sure their message is conveyed to the reader. It is for that reason why I am always so careful with my choice of words and why, if I can’t think of a word that says what I want it to, then I will stop, take a break and come back to it. Someone might say it at school. Or on the TV. Or it might be a word in a two second snippet of conversation that you hear when you’re out and about. Either way the word will come to you. I never use a thesaurus as sometimes the meaning can get lost slightly. If I don’t want to take a break from writing, I put in a temporary word- as I like to call it and come back to it at a later date. Don’t settle for second best. Give your piece of writing the words it deserves.
Thanks for reading.
New post tomorrow!
