Tip: Keep your tenses in line. If you start out writing in present tense (I walk into the house and see his coat on the chair.), stay with present tense. Don’t slip into past tense (I walked into the house and saw his coat on the chair). And be sure not to mix tenses (I walked into the house and see his coat on the chair).

Thought: “You may think you’re not an artist. You are. Everyone is, or can be, but it all depends on how you deal with your life.” – Milton Katselas (Dreams Into Actions)

Teaser: Use the following in a scene: taxi, spaceship, blizzard, New Year’s Eve
