3: Changing the Emphasis of the Plot Reinventing your book. First, think about what isn't working. I found that if you can define what needs to be changed, you're halfway to changing it.

By Lazette Gifford © 2007, Lazette Gifford Sometimes one of the hardest parts of writing is getting essential information into the story without resorting to 'As you know, Bob' references (where one character tells another something the other character already knows) or creating info dumps of data (text-book like explanations of something from your story). Working essential information into a story is an art form all its own -- and being able to tell what is, and what isn't needed, takes practice. Often, the problem arises when an author becomes too involved in the background research on a subject related to his current novel, and in the joy of learning something interesting, forgets that the reader hasn't picked up a fiction book about a man and woman trapped in a cabin in the Rockies with the intention of learning the minute details of how a snow storm forms.

Comment cerner le sujet et être sûr de ne pas s'arrêter en plein milieu de l'écriture : Pour l'époque, il faut chercher celle qui nous plaît le plus. Passé,présent ou futur.
I just finished reading my Co-Queen's excellent post on paragraphs with dialogue, and she has inspired me to riff on this topic. I agree with what she said except for one small detail. You see, I'm more wary of dialogue that comes at the end of a paragraph. One of the most fundamental rules for paragraphing dialogue is this: Begin a new paragraph every time the speaker changes. Like me, you may have learned that rule in your fifth grade English class. edittorrent
