Writing lesson

Today’s writing lesson comes from Elizabeth Bear. As it is short, I will include the whole thing here, but do go check out her blog.

How to take a flabby sentence and make it buff!: I scorched my palm on the painted wood.

Painted wood scorched my palm.

Contemplate. And apply.

And also: I have tickets for Coraline tonight (official website not working for me right now). Go see it. In 3D if at all possible. Go. Now. See you when you get back. The only theater in town with 3D equipment is now a discount house, and not showing first-run films. The new theater says that it is installing a 3D projector, and will have it set up in time for the Jonas Brothers in 3D. *shudder*
