Wednesday Wisdom for Writers and Those Who Love Them

"Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader. Not the fact that it is raining but the feeling of being rained upon." —E.L. Doctorow

While I love this, sometimes in a fast-moving scene, the fact that it's raining is only a small point that needs to be made. Sometimes it's best to tell rather than show, and move ahead with the story.

It's all better with friends.
