Half a Loaf

Having imagination, it takes you an hour to write a paragraph that, if you were unimaginative, would take you only a minute. Or you might not write the paragraph at all. ~Franklin P. Adams, Half a Loaf, 1927

This week I’ve been reading Powerful Paragraphs by Bruce Ross-Larson,part of The Effective Writing Series.

Today write just one imaginative paragraph that sets the scene for the paragraph that will follow, try opening the descriptive paragraph with a quote or a compelling fact. Now get back to work!
