A couple of days ago, I read a blog post (sorry I can’t remember where or who wrote it.), where an editor said, (I’m paraphrasing) “If your character is not altered than you do not have a scene or a chapter. Something has to change.” His/Her words clicked for me and I realized had a few places that I needed to either chop from the manuscript or rewrite. I can’t tell you how much better my chapter’s are after that advice. If you’re a writer, I recommend you giving it a try. I guarantee you’ll see a difference.
