First we examine what transition words are, the words that push your story forward. Next we examine how they are used. Honestly if you didn’t already noticed, I used two transition words in these sentences! Add information ‘for instance, when you show an example, or “below” you will find a list of these type of words and the categories they fall under.
They keep order, of First and last, but let’s hope we don’t get into a Who’s on 1st discussion. They compare things and not ‘in the same way’ metaphors or similes do. Emphasize your point “which in fact”, make you see the big fat period at the end of the argument “like” the old talk to the hand gesture. So
here’s the list of the words to use to transition print it,laminate it and refer to it if you are stuck
Now how to use them is up to you.
Here’s an idea for us busy bodies who can never seem to get our writing in!
Instead of trying to get so much time in a day, do a little each day for a week. Write short stories, even if its only 1 page front and back, write for 5 minutes, poems whatever you think of. Don’t forget to shut the world out, especially out of mind. Make a character sketch for someone you see during lunch at work, or outside in the park.
In honor of NaNoWriMo coming (November) I thought I’d prepare those of you who are participating. For those that don’t know about National Novel Writing Month go to
Nanowrimo.com (or it may be .org I forget)
November’s posts will be themed to helping you with your book (even if not in participating as can be a bit stressful)
