So, just for fun, you would like to write for the World Image Magazine? But, you have no idea where to begin. One of the hardest things for any writer to be faced with is a blank page, even when you know what it is you want to write about. So let me try and show you how I work on an article.
Having decided on the picture, I then look at it and wait. I am deciding how to describe the image, the most obvious is a good place to start, so let us begin.
The Westminster Bridge crosses the river Thames beside the houses of parliament.
This is a simple start but already there is information missing so I modify it.
In the heart of southern England lay the city of London through which runs the river Thames. One of the famous landmarks is Westminster Bridge, completed in 1750, it is an iron structure that spans the river beside the Houses of Parliament to the north and the London Eye and Aquarium to the south. It is painted green to reflect the green seats of the House of Commons.
So from a simple and incomplete beginning we have the start of an article towards the magazine. having described the bridge, we have already mentioned three other buildings of interest in the immediate area to which the story can progress, and that does not include the river itself.
Everyday writing is easy, you just have to start with the first words.
