Most readers no longer want large blocks of text that describe settings in intimate detail. If you are writing those kinds of paragraphs and were able to poll your readers about them, you’d likely find that those parts of the book are being skimmed or skipped. So the question becomes how to include those important descriptions and details about settings and characters without beating the reader over the head with them. In Episode 9 of The Write Approach, Barbara Hinske and J. W. Judge give some ideas for effective means of doing this.
Also on this date, J. W. Judge’s new book Write Your Novel One Day at a Time releases in bookstores everywhere (link).
And later in the week, the third book in Barbara Hinske’s Guiding Emily series comes out (link).
