10H – 1 Dec 2014 – Writing Day

Today is a writing day in the lab. One problem I’ve seen cropping up quite a bit is the use of rhetorical questions to portray a character’s inner thoughts. That’s the second of two no-no’s on this excellent blog post from a literary agent I admire (Jennifer Laughran). Take a look at her samples and her explanation for why it’s a tension killer.

Other than that, we’ll work today!
