These lessons, by one of our most consistent FaithWriters' Challenge Champions, should not be missed. So we're making a permanent home for them here.

Suggestions for Jan

Postby oursilverstrands » Wed Jul 17, 2013 11:12 pm

I thought I read a post by Jan that said she was back and looking for suggestions. But I can't find the thread. So Jan, I'm posting my suggestion here.

I would like a few pointers on how to have a smooth transition from one paragraph to another, especially when writing non-fiction. I guess it could be also applied to fiction as well. I looked at the previous topics you covered, and unless I missed it, I couldn't find that specific topic.

I hope I've posted this in the right place. :D

I write even when I think I can't, because I must. :-)

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

Thanks, Lish. You did indeed read that I'm looking for suggestions, but the post got buried under some previously locked posts. I'll take care of that tomorrow, when I get my moderator hat back on.

Thanks for the suggestion--I welcome that and any others you may have!

Anyone else care to chime in?

How to add descriptions without dragging down the story, especially in a scene with dialogue. Setting the scene requires some description, and introducing characters requires history, but how do you give enough while moving the plot forward?
