Hopping to Learn Tighter Writing!

animated-easter-bunny-3I fell down a rabbit’s hole, and I climb back up with a bruised….ego

I read a couple of pages of my new manuscript to the husband hoping for an opinion. And holy egg shattering, yoke spreading reality, did I get knocked into the frying pan. His words, “I don’t like it, Did you hear yourself?” struck me pre-scrambled. Wow, was he right. I need to learn to tighten up my way word writing.

My fuzzy wuzzy bunny sounded like a cat fight. Stunk like the actual skunk beneath bunny’s disguise. So, I turned my despicable woes to Annie Oortman of Annieedits.com and read her website. I jotted solutions down and applied them to my first two pages. Reread them and realized that tightening and using action verbs plays a key role in writing. Everyone’s writing.

So, it wasn’t a dark and dreary night… but… The moonless night…

Doree Anderson,

Keep on writing, keep on writing…
