Contrary to my recent Words posting, Writer Shplock, my own writing has thankfully not ground to a dismal halt. In fact, progress is being made on a daily basis. I am about a third of the way through my novel. And, although I don’t want to jinx it, I am hoping to have my first draft completed by next Spring. Hoping.
But that’s not what I want to write about. I want to tell you about a radical new approach that I’m using that seems to have accelerated my work, and that is making the process a lot more enjoyable – dare I say even fun. And it is forcing me to follow one of the most oft-repeated directives of good fiction writing… show, don’t tell.
See Show, Don’t Tell in the Words section of this blog.
