Craft Tips to Strengthen Your Writing

I recently spoke at the Caprock Writers Alliance. They were kind enough to do a video of my presentation, and I wanted to share it with you.  Hope it helps!

    New insights. Friendly reminders. It’s all here in this presentation. And Laura delivers it with heart, with first-hand experience and with plenty of examples to light your lightbulbs!

    Great reminder of things that slip through the cracks when we’re writing. I’ve learned to watch for word crutches, the words I use too much and the ones I don’t really need. With my WIP, I’m trying to be better at cutting them off at the knees during the draft stage. But we’ll see what happens when I do that final editing search for them.

    This is an excellent video for newbies and for oldies, like myself, trying to get over that hump to being published.

    Enjoyed the presentation, Laura. We all need to be reminded of these things.
