Such simple words but so effective, right? Have you ever wondered how this happens? All it requires is a little tinkering with tales, by using your imagination. Tools such as organization of thoughts, use of effective vocabulary, ability to tap on our imagination to create a plot, settings and characters are what make your writing effective.
