Write whatever you want. Then take out the first paragraph and last paragraph.

Time heals all wounds. Write about the hard stuff from the past.

Have a shocking title.

Слайд 29

Don’t ask for permission. Never say “in my opinion.” We know it’s your opinion. You’re writing it.

The last line needs to go BOOM!
