I attended a workshop at a writer’s conference last year in which one of the speakers said something that has stuck with me ever since. When I’m writing and find myself explaining things or trying to interject backstory, this quote always comes to mind. It’s one of many quotes which have helped make me a better writer. Perhaps it will help you, too.
“Don’t tell me how the watch is made when I just want to know the time” — Deborah LeBlanc
