  • Pick out the most effective words or phrases from yesterday’s mind map  

  • Experiment with your words. Try them in different orders, place different words next to each other, swap them round. What do you think sounds best o or creates the best effect when you read it back? 

  • Make sure you have the right number of syllables in each line. Clap to count the syllables in each word (like we do in Word of the Day). If you’re still not sure, use the syllable counter
