100 Ways to Improve Your Writing (Mentor Series)

Both quotes today on Twofer Tuesday are from Gary Provost’s excellent book 100 Ways to Improve Your Writing:

from Don’t Play the Tom Wolfe Game
If you cannot state a good reason for doing SOMEthing LYKE Thhhiiissss!!!, don’t do it.

~ and ~

from Listen to What You Write
Read aloud what you write and listen to it as music. Listen for dissonance. Listen for the beat. Listen for gaps where the music leaps from sound to sound instead of flowing as it should.
