Searching for the Right Words? Tip #32

I don’t think I’ve shared any of Stuart’s excellent writing advice yet! You can also get a sense of what his many (is it 12?) books are about too! 😉 ❤

This series is intended to help authors express the full meaning and emotional content of their fiction.

As writers, we want to inspire readers with joy, stoke their terrors, romance them with love, overwhelm them with horror, inflame their passions.
