Or things that lack personality… I can’t read
Things that are entirely positive or entirely negative.
I like balance.
Good spelling and grammar won't make you great, paint me a story,
One that imitates life.
If you want to write well, you must:
Be compassionate to all characters.
Most importantly, SHOW DON’T TELL.
If you say you feel like crap tell me exactly why. Tell me about the sweat created by your beard; describe the stickiness of your neck, the dry boogers on your nostrils.
Let us in. Filtered writing is worthless.
Be quick. Unless you’re Whitman, Shakespeare, Milton or H. James, no one is going to want to read your sentence fragments… no matter how clever you think your punch lines are.
Oh, let me not forget, to make sure and end everything with a positive note… DON’T DO IT. Be real. We live on Earth not Disney.
Sustain credibility; no, create it.
You're welcome, your genuine Friend. :)
