Project Description

Streamlined Writing Project

Strategy 2: Writing Sentences in the Writing Mastery Series

b6f51f56

This course includes three techniques to help you activate and streamline written pieces of fiction, nonfiction, and possibly poetry through effective use of sentences. The course will make your writing stand out right away!

This course includes three concrete and actionable techniques for improving your sentence structure and usage. Put each one into practice as you create a new writing piece or as you revise a newer or older already-written piece. Once you have completed the piece, please post the new piece or a before and after version of your revised piece so we can see your wonderful changes, then consider the next part of the series, "Writing Structures." Or, go through all eight courses in the series and then post your final copy or before and after copies to the "Writing Habits" course.
