Always a Little Writing Lesson

We’re noticing the power of “repeated first words” in writing. My students implement the strategy, and they find their writing carries a new force. They find they create urgency. They find a new, weightier feel to their words. They find they have a voice.

See how I did that? I repeated “they find” to create some rhythm and intensity in those sentences. If you want to write something and invite your reader into some drama, repeat the first words.

That’s your little writing lesson for today. That’s your bit of fun. That’s your ticket to writing more powerfully.
