Wednesday's WIP'ed Ink

Flickr link
Hey all! I feel like I've been missing in action. I know I haven't been around visiting blogs and I haven't done much replying here on my own blog. And I signed up for a blog hop, but I just haven't been able to keep up with the posts every day. I'm sorry about that..

Let me explain very quickly. And hope you will forgive and understand. I am in the middle of doing some revisions at the request of an agent!


I have a little secret I'm not at liberty to discuss. Just yet.

So, I have a quick tip for today's post. And then I'm off to revise.

Since we are talking about world building, there is one thing I would caution. There is a fine line between back story and telling too much, but with a a new world, completely different than what we are used to, with strange names and customs, it is important you keep the world building easy to understand for a reader. Names and such can be completely confusing and if I don't know what or who you are talking about, I'll lose interest quickly. 

As you world build, make sure it is explained in a creative and fun way that will draw your reader into the story and not frustrate them to the point they close the book.

Thanks beautiful guys and dolls! I will take the few Wednesday's WIP'ed Ink to discuss world building and finish up the blog hop I am missing (that I regret terribly and I am really sorry for missing out...)

If you came here today to read the explanation of yesterday's pictures, don't be too mad at me...
