“Remove everything that has no relevance to the story. If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it’s not going to be fired, it shouldn’t be hanging there.”
As autumn approaches and the new season of Kendal Writers Café meetings begin we have decided to move to a new website format which includes all updates on our activities and a blog that will add thoughts and insights on the craft of writing. Please feel free to respond to any posts and keep checking back to see additions to the site which we hope will be useful to writers at all stages of their writing journey.
