As writers, part of what we do makes mundane moments come to life.

Strengthening those three components isn’t always easy though, which is why you might want to consider stepping outside of your normal paragraph style writing.
As an exercise: Write a ten-line free form poem about your story. This might focus on a specific character, a memorable setting, or even a specific moment. Let yourself play with rhymes, line breaks and even syllables. See what comes out!
