I started reading Lisa Crone’s WIRED FOR STORY, which I’ve been wanting to do since her Lynda.com video was a huge help to me when I was stuck in my rough draft last year.
I just read, “writers who can’t sum up the story they’re telling in a clearly focused, intriguing sentence or two probably haven’t written a clearly focused, intriguing story.”
I took this as a challenge. I tried this a year ago and it was really HARD. But this time after all the edits, it was actually pretty easy.
