Good advice, Dave.
Take care of the little things and the big things take care of themselves. good advice.
dave - i find that the best writing is contained in the little spaces between the details. something like your haiku! steven
Profound and solid advice (I can never remeber in which context this word is spelt with an S or a C!)
Advice noted.Each word a stitch -But if dropped Oh..the unravelling
Hm.. I will have to read that a couple more times. Thanks for the advice.
Thanks.I needed that.Again and again and again...jim
Yes, it's all about the marvelous details!
I will take your advice and remember to use it. My writing is minimal; I am a reader more than a writer. That's why I like to read your blog.
Ah, I heard similar advice after starting a blog, as well as don't confine the work to the format.Although the exercise to wittle down a prior piece to 55 words has taught me to look at brevity differently.
I'll let you know if that was good advice after I give it a try, Dave.Oh, that was advice for writers! No hope for me then. lol
What's in a detail?We should pay more attention!Lesson for the day.Dave, I love the gentle way you tutor us/me and I get all mushy inside when you leave a compliment.
"It’s all about the subtle, refined elements that make something worth listening to, reading twice or watching repeatedly. It’s those tiny parts that upon first glance seem insignificant, but after further inspection reveal the depth that went into them. It is always the detail that astounds and inspires." Adam Singer
If I were still needlepointing, I'd make a pillow of this and sit on it when I write and hope for upward osmosis.
yes sir, i will. If I can, that is.
AllAmazing unanimity once again, friends, but alas, not my advice. Advice from Ian McEwan who was taking the advice to readers of an even greater writer - whose name I forget!!! - and applying it to authors.
Got it. But good to have a solid reminder. Thanks!
