The Eloquence of Brevity

This week we’re going right back to basics and considering where we can trim words, ways to layout dialogue and what to do about paragraphs.

  • Monday – I Looked At… How description of an object implies a character is looking at it.
  • Tuesday – Antagonistic Adverbs, Should we never use adverbs? I wouldn’t go that far.
  • Wednesday – He Said, She Said, They Said, ‘Said’ should provide clarity not confetti.
  • Thursday – Breaking a Paragraph, Using paragraphs in dialogue.
  • Friday – Suddenly… Paragraphs for description, pace and suddenness.
  • Saturday – Lashes, Charlottes witnesses Richard’s handiwork.
