Friday Inspiration - Carving Your Story
"Carving a story is just the opposite of carving a turkey; cut away everything that isn't essential and keep the carcass."
Storee loves turkey and she loves to read. She also has a friend, Jim Calder, who is a Master Carver. She is getting a lot of ideas for future stories from today's inspiration. Are you?
Write a story then set it aside for a while. Then edit it to cut away words and information that aren't needed to keep the story moving.
Share your story here! Happy writing.
