Grabbing the reader's attention and getting them to continue reading after the first couple of pages isn't easy. So how do authors do it? What makes a good beginning, anyway? I explore some ideas in this video. Thanks for watching!

Thursday thoughts with Lisa - using memories in your writing

Have you ever hear that saying, write what you know? What does it mean? Should we ONLY write what we know? I talk about all of that in this video and share one of my books that has a big part of "me" in it.

Thursday thoughts with Lisa - where do ideas come from

Today I talk about ideas since that's what I'm working on right now - trying to come up with the best idea in the whole wide world for a new book! Ah, no pressure or anything, right?

Thursday Thoughts with Lisa - writing an acrostic poem

So, I'm back with another video and a plan to do one every Thursday! I'll give writing tips, do some writing exercises for you, talk about books, maybe do some reading, whatever I feel like that day. I want them to be short and sweet and something you know to look for every Thursday. Feel free to let others know - they'll be posted here as well as on youtube. If you'd like to leave a comment or ask a question, you can do so here.

Here's the first Thursday Thoughts with Lisa video. Enjoy!!
