A New Year's Resolution

I know. I know. It's the time of year when most of us make impossible resolutions that we'll end up breaking before the end of January.

Well, here's mine. It's short and sweet. I resolve to write tighter in 2011. Bye bye to needless adverbs and adjectives. Farewell to useless dialogue that goes on and on and never gets to the point.

Happy New Year to all.

And bye bye for now!

I absolutely and unqualifiedly agree with our Scottish friend.

Thanks for the "moral" support. I'm feeling stressed already!

The second and third drafts are the fun drafts for me. Just search and distroy all those nasty adverbs and adjectives and other unnecessary words. :)
