Addendum to ‘Walking into Words (Even More on Writing Dialogue) and Theme


Go for a walk!

Description must work for its place. It can’t be simply ornamental. It ­usually works best if it has a human element; it is more effective if it comes from an implied viewpoint, rather than from the eye of God. If description is coloured by the viewpoint of the character who is doing the noticing, it becomes, in effect, part of character definition and part of the action.

Hilary Mantel

I found the above directly after writing my previous blog.  Thank you Hilary!  You are my muse of the moment!
