Tip of the Week

Leave out the logistical elements of initiating tasks and general "getting around." In other words, donīt take time to explain in detail how a character gets into a car, drives somewhere (unless critical action takes place ON the drive!), puts on a bathing suit, answers a telephone, or enters a room. We all know how this basic stuff works, and it isnīt worth reporting in real life OR fiction. So leave it out.
