Homeschool Buyers Co-op BBB Business Review

Free Writing Tips

The Co-op is pleased to present free writing tips from Julie Bogart, the creator of the popular Brave Writer writing curriculum.

Write more than one, epic story.

Occasionally a writer gets so seduced by a single story line, she can’t abandon it, even after she’s worked on it for what seems like an incredibly long time. The devotion to one story can be a form of writer’s block—the fear that if the writer leaves this story behind, no other one will emerge!

The truth is, though, that a world of words lives inside all of us. Stories, plots, ideas, thoughts. Your kids need to know that they can go back to the well—that there is more there that will come if they give it space to bubble to the surface.

You don’t have to stop your child from an involving, time-consuming story. The passion to keep writing and to deep dive into one story is a wonderful gift! But you can also remind your child that he or she can write other kinds of writing, too. Then explore some of those other kinds. You can also share that some of that new writing will actually help the story that they’re writing. By exploring other genres or stories, they add new skills to their toolbox and those show up in their passionate writing.
