A couple of days ago, I directed you to the blog of Vivian Zabel who posted several items writers should "do."
Now, I'd like you to go on back to visit with Vivian again. Following her original post is her list of what writers shouldn't do.
Once again, Vivian has given a clear list of things writers should avoid. She gives concrete examples which make it easy to understand what she's saying. With her teaching background, Vivian knows how to get her point across to her students.
Please take a moment to stop by, read, take notes, and absorb what she has to say. Her blog, Brain Cells and Bubble Wrap, is available at http://vivianzabel.blogspot.com/
Good luck with your writing.
