B is for the worst word in writing--Boring. Is your writing boring? Are parts of it? A scene maybe? Certainly I know I've gone through my own work and come across sections where I am dieing to put my own book down.
Eww, what was I thinking? NOTHING is happening throughout the entire scene!
I am thinking of Boring right now because of a book I'm reading right now. I won't say which and no it is not displayed in that rolling widget to your left. I have been trying to slog through the climax--THE CLIMAX PEOPLE--for the last four nights.
It's boring. I don't care. I actually kind of hope that the main character gets killed because that might be the only thing that could raise my emotional level to any degree.
This book is selling like ice in summer.
There is a major motion picture coming.
I am forcing myself to finish just so I can put it away and move on.
Watch out for the boring in your own writing--especially the climax!
