Check your article for repetition. If you found you have repeated a phrase unnecessarily then takerepparttar 129306 extra wording out.

Get another opinion. Read it out loud or have a friend read it. See if your writing makes sense to them and they understand what you are writing about. This will help you inrepparttar 129307 proofing department.

"What If No One Likes It?"

Ok not everyone is going to like it, but there will be people who do. You will never know unless you try. We are far more critical about ourselves than other people are on us. Somewhere some one is going to find what you have to say helpful. I think ofrepparttar 129308 articles I have read that have helped me. It was great to read about someone who already went through what I am going through now. At least I knew that I wasn'trepparttar 129309 only one that was going throughrepparttar 129310 frustrations.

Inrepparttar first instance, we're being told about her embarrassment, not how she behaves when embarrassed. Now, take another character, who perhaps becomes angry when she's embarrassed andrepparttar 129304 sentence would read like this:

"She clenched her fists and scowled, enraged he would embarrass her with such lewd comments."

By fixingrepparttar 129305 reader deeply intorepparttar 129306 character, there is no need to tell them she felt, or she saw,repparttar 129307 writer simply needs to show what that characters feels and sees. As in a character who has a background in fashion design might look at a sunset and see:

"The glowing sun castrepparttar 129308 landscape in vermillion and gold, a combination she could use inrepparttar 129309 fall designs."

Or another character, who is a romantic at heart, might seerepparttar 129310 same sight and think:

"The glowing sun castrepparttar 129311 landscape in vermillion and gold, a lush and perfect backdrop for her date's handsome face.

Neither ofrepparttar 129312 above would have quiterepparttar 129313 same impact ifrepparttar 129314 writer used:

"She sawrepparttar 129315 glowing sun castrepparttar 129316 landscape in vermillion and gold."

Working with you're characters, their experiences, and learning to show their thoughts rather than telling them, will enliven your work and carryrepparttar 129317 story torepparttar 129318 next level.
