Bad Advice Boogie! What Advice Should You Really Listen To?

Writing isnt a science, so why should you follow every rule?
Web Version »

Were here to tell you to follow
Jeff Somers advice on well, advice!
When it comes to writing, the pure volume of advice out there can be overwhelming. Most instructors preach the typical maxims: Write what you know, Write every day, Kill your darlings, Avoid passive voice, and the most-famous, Show, dont tell.

What if we told you all those instructors are wrong?

OK, maybe not wrong. But, perhaps, that such advice should just be taken with a grain of saltbecause each morsel of wisdom is a double-edged sword.

Take Show, dont tell, for example. Showing seems more artistically brilliant, as youre creating a mental image for your reader; telling is well just telling the reader something. Which one seems preferable? Showing, obviously.

Yet, do you want to spend 500-or-more words describing how Mary is tired to your reader, or should you say, Mary felt tired, and longed for a nap. (Conversely, if you wrote this way all the time, youd have a 7,000-word novel.)

See? Implementing writing advice is about striking a balance.

And thats where Jeff Somers comes in: Circle his session, Bad Advice Boogie, in your program for the Writers Digest Annual Conference in August and be sure to attend!* Hell cover the above topics and moreincluding how some bad advice can magically become good.
