Share with a friend for more information, or research in your resources. Add diligence as you specify with nifty nouns. Listen to a friend again. Add his/her questions to your own to redo the idea with more details. Sprinkle the adjectives and adverbs sparingly. Pour in the patience and stir in the vivid verbs, redoing as necessary. Listen to the lilt of your words and present your product, smiling at your success as a writer.
