“Do you have any questions for me?”
I’d just sat through a paid critique of my work. For the most part, the news had been good although there were things I needed to work on but she hadn’t addressed the one thing that I had been wondering about my own work. “Do I include enough setting detail?”
“Yes, but not by much. It wouldn’t hurt to add more.”
As a result, I’ve been trying weave in a bit more detail as I write. What does this look like? Would anyone notice a particular scent? What sounds would work their way through all the hubbub?
But I also learned a lesson in my reading — be careful to use only accurate details. See my Muffin blog post to find out more.
