If you, like me, are struggling with writing "tight yet precise," here are two excellent blog posts by Brandilyn Collins:
"How to Compress your Fiction, Part 1"
"How to Compress Your Fiction, Part 2"
Both are adapted from her how-to book, Getting Into Character. She will be teaching at the 2014 Writing for the Soul Conference Feb, 13-16, 2014, at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.
