Writing Tip

Don’t use the word “epiphany.”

Bolts from the blue should be big enough on their own without the announcement: “Hey, Ted had an epiphany!” It’s the show, don’t tell rule applied to the e-word.

And that’s my epiphany, coming straight at you from the wonderful (if snarky little book) How Not to Write a Novel by Howard Mittelmark & Sandra Newman.

Pick it up and read read read.
