    2. Use metaphors -A metaphor is when we describe one thing as if it’s another.
    3. Use adverbs 
    4. Don’t always say “he said”

    6. Surprise your reader – Try to avoid clichéd or overused plots.
    7. Vary your sentence structure
    8. Get to know your characters – Plan a little: who are they?  What are they wearing?  What do they look like? What job do they have?
    9. Include “irrelevant” details – Lots of (seemingly) insignificant details will make your story believable.
    10. Don’t preach
