Topic: How to Write a Good Story

Question: How can you prevent readers from becoming bored with your writing?

Answer: Hallie Burnett. “If a story doesn’t bore you to write, it won’t bore the reader to read. When I begin to feel bored with any part of my writing, I skip to the next point that interests me, intending to come back and fill in—but often I find this unnecessary, and the words I have not written are never missed.” P. 178.
