I’m Analyzing My Writing…
I’ve made huge progress in several areas of writing as a result of both fiction and nonfiction this year. Have I said I love editing?
1. Too many gerunds and other -ing words instead of using a stronger verb. Example: I was thinking I would go running after I finished the washing.
Yikes. “I thought I’d run after the laundry.” (visions of galloping after the sheets). Maybe better: After the laundry, I planned to jog. Still not happy…see what I mean?
