One Sentence Writing Tips: #2 of 5

This week, we are looking at "one sentence writing tips" sent in by my FB friends.

Conda Douglas - “Set your work aside for a while before you edit, and you'll see a lot more with fresher eyes.”

Nick du Plessis - “Editors are like manners; select few can succeed without them, but most people need them.”

Cynthia Echterling - “To get a feel for dialogue, eavesdrop in places where real people carry on conversations -- truck stops, airports, bars.”

Terry W. Ervin II - “You have absolutely zero chance for success if you don't ever complete a project.”

By the way, there is still room for a couple more "one sentence writing tips" later in the week. E-mail your tip to me at montananovels@yahoo.com - thanks!
