"You come by your style by learning what to leave out. At first you tend to overwrite--embellishment instead of insight"--Billy Collins
Thank you! It's simply put and very true, and just what I needed to realize how to rewrite my next scene.
Someone just emailed me to let me know I'd been quotes. As my Irish friend would say, "I'm chuffed!"
Theresa, it is a quotable quote.
Yeah, that's stated pretty much perfectly.
Theresa! You rock this writer's world! xoxo *chuffed*
Way to go, Theresa! I've read your writing, and I know this to be true!
Well said! Theresa is totally quotable and an amazing writer! I just Beta read an MG and a YA novel for her.
I couldn't agree more. I love it when my characters take charge help me plot the story. I've learned to listen to them closely.
I lead a character down a box canyon, she kept hinting not to. Had to scrap 6k words, then I asked her for directions. Good quote.
