Meeting the challenge of writing compelling stories at different lengths, from 1000 words to 100,000 words.
Pamela Tracey / The War of the Words
Are adverbs really bad? And, just who gave the word “said” such a bad reputation? Besides writing for Harlequin and whoever else will snatch up her books, Pamela Tracy is an English professor who not only spends her romance writing hours wrangling with words, but she also spends her classroom hours instructing the next generation that “You can paint the world with words.” Come hear what she has to say about tags, repetition, and fragments. Wait! It’s not just what she says; the truth is in the pages of the books by our favorite authors.
