SINGLE STEP 365 ~ MINDFUL ~ WRITE YOUR LIFE ~ DAY 72

DAY 72

GET TO THE POINT.

As writers, we want to include every detail and explanation in our WIP. Don’t.

Show don’t tell, unless that is your intention. Sometimes it’s ok.

Tighten up your writing. Be mindful of your goal.

Active vs. Passive. There is a time and place for using passive. Use passive voice to enhance subtle suggestions and ideas, and/or convey emotion. Use active to keep the narrative concise and moving plot forward.
