Fancy that!

Isn't this little badge cute. 

For students who are beginning a writing course of any kind, I would say write from the heart, and have an EMOTION as the key element of your writing.  Any work I've had published, from a short letter, to a two page spread in a Summer Special have all got one thing in common.  An emotion is involved.  Whether it's love, (always the best one) or embarrassment, (one editor's like a lot) or maybe jealousy where revenge is the driving emotion.  Keep in mind that without emotion, and great characters, there is no story.  For a good study of characters, I would recommend 'Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas.
