Unfortunately, the advice from critique partners and my editors are conflicting. Some want more description. Some want less. If you read my previous post you know how I feel about description.However, like most writers, it’s easy to see what needs to be fixed in someone else’s work. What needs to be added and where they need to cut back. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy to “fix” your own work. Especially when so many conflicting opinions join the chorus of doubts in your head.
I love my story. It’s simple, but powerful. However, I know it’s not quite ready. So, I’ve taken a break from it this week. This weekend I’ll return to it looking for DEEP POV issues (see here for more on this) as well as any description fixes.How are your projects going? What works for you during the editing process?
