If you sometimes struggle to make your writing pop off the page, there are some simple tricks you can use to help make your story more engaging. First, use active voice as much as possible. There are some instances where passive voice makes more sense, so just make sure you determine whether what you’re writing deserves an active or passive voice. Second, use descriptive verbs that can more accurately convey the action. Third, avoid repetitive words. Readers can become numb when they read the same word over and over. The dictionary and the thesaurus are your friends when writing! Don’t be afraid to use these tools, but make sure the words you’re using in your story are appropriate for your audience.
