Get some personality in your pen!

 - by dawn

Give permission to be yourself and inject some personality into your words!

Social media, particularly Twitter is a great medium to practice – try being verbose and/or grammatically correct with only 140 characters to play with!

A great little Twitter tip, look how clever people are with the use of a hashtag # turning a word, comment or phrase into a searchable topic by adding the # gets people’s creative juices flowing, and really can show off your funny side!  How about this one #threewordstoliveby – can you get a bit of yourself into just three words – #seemstoodifficult or #easyaspie?

So if we are to inject some personality in your pen, here are my top 3 tips for getting you onto the page:

  1. Write as if you are talking to someone – just one person, and not a crowd.
  2. Really imagine who that person you are writing to is – it really matters that you know what they want to hear from you.
  3. Read what you have written out loud, how does it sound?  If it’s still a bit formal, try and write more as you say it!

And if all else fails, there are plenty of great writers out there who will definitely be able to get some of your personality in their pen!

Good luck and look forward to hearing from you @makechoccies on twitter or send me an email
