If you missed my conversation with Tina Bakehouse about writing tips in late 2021, here's you chance to catch up.
Many "would be writers" think they should start with a title and let the story unfold. Our guest, Tina Bakehouse suggests starting in the middle. Begin by fleshing out the content in the middle. Once you are clear on the body of what you're writing it will inspire the title and the flow from beginning to end.
While a good title will grab the reader's attention, the best part of any story is the conflict or twist in the middle portion, which carries the reader along on the ride with with the storyteller.
