Since joining Faithwriters, I've been working a lot on showing rather than telling. I think that sometimes, describing a character's thoughts can be necessary in telling a story. (Which should be done very carefully.) However, most of what needs to be conveyed can be done better in showing -- especi...

Use dashes to add "afterthoughts." I should have dealt with fixing the tire sooner--like yesterday. I have a question: I sometimes use ellipses for emphasis, though I'm not sure this is entirely proper. Should dashes be used instead? Should ellipses only be used for an incomplete thought?

Wow! Praise the Lord that I'm advancing at last! :D I'm happy not because my writing is so great, but because advancing means that God is sharpening the gifts that He's given me, which means I'll be able to use them more effectively for His Kingdom. I'm humbled to be among so many great "champions."...
