“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

Ernest Hemingway. He said that. And a Hemingway book is the only one I have ever thrown across the room. The ending was should I say wrong, so not what I wanted it to be, and I was so wrapped up in the story that I threw the book.

The book I am talking about here is For Whom The Bell Tolls. I recommend it. If you throw it as well, let me know.

What's happening this week?

The video out right now is Part 7 of my Creative Writing for Kids Series: How to Write a Newspaper Article.

In the video I describe the three most common types of article, though I focus on the first: the news article itself. And to do that, and to help you to write articles that draw the audience in, that stimulates them, and that delivers your message in the clearest way possible, I give you some tips.

And, as is usual with these videos, I have also updated the eBook with this lesson. Go ahead and grab the eBook here!

And watch the video below, which explains all of the concepts.
