3T Writing Tidbit

As I was learning the craft of writing, sometimes I got a little confused about the proper way to do things. Here are a couple rules of thumb I picked up. As with any rule of thumb, this is a guide, not a set of commandments.

  • On paragraphing: A description of him from her perspective belongs in her paragraph.
  • On placement of adverbs: -ly word goes with its verb. It suddenly flared, not suddenly it flared.
  • Act II belongs to the villain.
  • The inciting incident has the climax embedded in it.

Published since 2009, over the years I've accumulated various items of writing wisdom. The Third Tuesday Writing Tidbit showcases these items in no particular order. Click here to see all 3T Tidbits.
