-------Energy and Elaborate--two wonderful words: I love it when I get an idea for a short story or novel and feel the energy of it flowing on the paper. When I feel the energy, then I believe my reader does too. Not every idea I come up with reaches that point and I have to elaborate until I get on the right path. Sometimes I never capture what I’m aiming for and lose all enthusiasm for the piece.
Do you think there’s a trick to creating energy in your writing? Like me, do you elaborate, flesh it out, layer it until you connect with that strength, vitality, voice you’re striving for? Sometimes I take a look at my verbs, cut the passive and add active verbs to make my piece come alive.
