I’m over at The Blood-Red Pencil Blog discussing what’s on my Fiction Search and Destroy List.
Humans, by nature, gravitate toward patterns, so when we write we often make the same mistakes. Of course, these errors are only mistakes if we don’t correct them in the final draft. My Fiction Search and Destroy list contains the items I look to fix in my work when self-editing. I expect others might make some of the same mistakes, so use the list as you see fit, add your own points, and delete those you don’t need. Happy editing.
