The Sparkling Edit: An Insecure Post
Welcome to First Wednesday and the Insecure Writer's Support Group!
I am delusional. A friend asked me if I planned to throw glitter at it. It might come to that.
I know I don't write super descriptively, and I've always preferred simple language because while it might not be beautiful, at least it never gets in the way of the story. The language itself can be invisible as the story soaks in. But I'm starting to think it's not enough. I need a bit more “pull the reader in” stuff and some of that just has to be descriptive language. But well done descriptive... evocative and visual, not just describing... Emotions, too... I can't just tell what they are, I need to infuse how it feels.
Have you conquered any new writing challenges lately?
