Revising Improving Your Writing

Review Your Work 🟪 Review your first draft to be sure that the characters’ words and actions make sense. Also check the length of your story—is it too short or too long? If some parts seem boring, change them or take them out. If something seems to happen too quickly, slow the pace of your story by adding to it.

Add Life to Your Story 🟪 If your story needs a little spice, try adding a few details, some dialogue, or more action.

  • Use specific details. What interesting sights, sounds, smells, tastes, or textures could you add?
  • Use realistic dialogue. Dialogue shows how your characters feel. Where in the story could you have your characters talk to each other?
  • Use believable action. There’s nothing like a little action or suspense to keep a story exciting. What could you have your characters do?
