I'm finally putting some of what I've learned into practice with two flash fiction pieces I'm working on. This has had some interesting side effects...
First, I find myself less afraid to rewrite things when I see they've gone bad. If a big chunk would take longer to repair than rewrite, rewrite it!
Second, I see that I still have an issue with too much telling and not enough showing that I have to be careful of. A little more time spent thinking produces far better results.
And finally.. planning is not a bad thing for me. Sitting down with a list of plot points removes a lot of idle think-time in midwrite, spo I can keep the flow going longer and with less effort. I was afraid that too much planning would kill the more creative aspects of writing, but thankfully it doesn't. Hooray!
So, while I don't have anything sharable yet, I'm definitely learning to write better prose.
