gold nugget


Every piece of writing contains golden nuggets – moments or phrases that make the story special. Go through some of your favorite texts to find the golden nuggets within. What makes them stand out? Why do they work? Next, do the same with your own work. How many golden nuggets do you have in one piece, and how do they compare to those you found by other writers? How can you strive to make every sentence a golden nugget?
