Writing Tips:

  1. Do not “tell” us what happens. “Show” it to us, second by second.
  2. Allow us to experience it, in all its sensory detail. Use sight, sound, smell, feel and, possibly taste.
  3. Show us, in a scene, using action, dialogue, thought and observed detail.
  4. Don’t use thought in an obvious way. Make sure any scraps you use sound like natural thought in the moment, rather than explanation.
  5. Allow the tension and uncertainty to rise. Make sure we’re desperate to know more.
