Move Your Reader with Moving Writing

by Sam

Let every sentence make the reader think. If it doesn't it should be rephrased or discarded. Writing should be entertaining. Every last sentence needs to contain one of these elements. A boring sentence can ruin a paragraph. A boring paragraph can ruin a chapter.

1. A word that makes the reader think.
2. An interesting comparison, metaphor, or parallel.
3. A sentence that moves the plot forward.
4. Dialogue that speaks volumes.
