    Hear, hear! Great tips. I especially use #3 and #6 a lot. Another thing I sometimes do is to just jot down words that describe what it is I want readers to take away from the scene or the piece. “Dread, foreboding, sense of unease, cold, damp,” for example, or “impression that X is a klutz.” It helps me find words that convey that sense.

    THANK YOU!!!

    These tips have helped me immensely. I especially like the “Write Crap” tip. In the past I have done that just to get the idea out of my head onto paper, then later revising what I’ve written when I have a more clear head.

    I really appreciate you sharing this!
