Don’t be Evil – Don’t Be Boring

By CBramkamp creative writing, Writing Encouragement Comments Off on Don’t be Evil – Don’t Be Boring

I just finished Beach Music by Pat Conroy. Like most of his books, it is  about dysfunctional southern families.  This particular novel veers off into side stories that seemed too long and too tedious and while related to the action, the stories weren’t relevant enough and in fact, quickly grew so tedious I began skimming those sections just to get them over with.
Notice when you encounter sections in a novel that you want to just skim to get them over with.
Do you have sections of a novel or blog or story that you feel are a bit boring?  Be honest, you don’t want your reader to skim over them and you don’t want to ever be called boring.
