I’m in a re-blogging mood this week, apparently because you are writing posts I simply can’t resist.
I made the mistake of re-blogging this excellent post about adverbs and adjectives to my private ‘lessons’ blog (where I file teaching posts I want to save), only to discover I cannot now re-blog it here. Aspiring writers will appreciate this ‘lesson’.
I struggle with the whole ‘show; don’t tell’ concept – not fully understanding or embracing it. Of the many ‘expert’ posts I’ve read on the topic, Jamie’s is the most succinct and specific, and includes the best examples of how to use adverbs and adjectives to spice our writing.
I’ve wanted to give a shout-out to this group of professional writers – New Hampshire Writers’ Network – who blog at Live to Write – Write to Live.
While I enjoy all the writers on that site, I salivate every Saturday morning while reading Jamie’s regular Saturday post.
If you read today’s post, please use your time commenting there instead of here. Enjoy and learn !
