Wordcraft

Upon reading wordcraft what stuck out most to me was when to add yourself into a story. Personality isn’t something that can be forced. It naturally comes out of the writer after they become familiar with the “language” and become more experienced writers. This makes sense to me. I feel like staying in the background is necessary unless you are confident with writing and feel putting yourself in the story would actually make it better. Another thing that sticks out to me is “Show, Don’t Tell”. This title explains itself. We need to use words that give our target audience the experience of using their imaginations to feel and see what we are writing about themselves.
