“Ignore this advice and some people will discard your work as amateurish. You’ll never know because they won’t tell you; they’re too busy editing books, or teaching their creative writing students or reading better quality books.”
Tahlia Newland, The Elements of Active Prose

“When I’m self-editing, I search for all those ‘was’es and ‘were’s and see if I can write the sentences better without them. I usually can. This one tip made a huge difference to the quality of my prose.”
Tahlia Newland, The Elements of Active Prose
