As writers, we have a tendency to just let it rip on the page. It's what readers love, crave, and come to our writing for. But a lot of the time, letting it just rip without a bit of editing and trimming leaves cluttered and distanced writing when what we want is writing that brings the reader into the story fully and exactly how we want.
Power up your fiction by creating characters that are relatable, real, and complex.

The simplest way a lot of writers think about plot is as a series of events. This type of writing tends to create a story where things just happen. There’s nothing much connecting them and there aren’t arcs. As a reader and writer, I’m not a fan of these types of stories.
