6 Killer Writing Tips

Kill Adjectives – The Right Way

Knowing when to kill adjectives from my writing has been something I’ve struggled with for a long time. Editing what you’ve written and wiping the little suckers out is easy enough. But when are you supposed to leave them in?

I asked Joanna Young the question and she gave me some great tips on when to slay and when to spare adjectives. No matter what type of writing you do, if the adjectives thing confuses you too, you need to check out what Joanna has to say in: When Adjectives Are Necessary.

Create A Believable Villain

Writing about the villain of the story can be tough. I struggled with it earlier this year. My villain was just too bad to be believable. He was so mean he would have been the number one suspect right away, which wasn’t the effect I wanted.

If you’re struggling with this type of writing too, Melissa Donovan shares some great tips in: How To Write A Complex Villain
