DON’T cut out the action, even if you’re hesitant about writing it.

If all things in the plot are leading up to a major showdown, and I’m with you 100%, DO NOT, I beg of you for the love of God, cut to the next morning!

It’s just not kosher.

  1. The sad part was, the rest of the book was good!!! And then the bottom TOTALLY dropped out of the bucket when the guys came in to save the damsel in distress.


    All it would have taken was a paragraph or two of wickety-whack, of guns blazin’ and some hand-to-hand with the baddies, and then they could have grabbed her and ran. Just a paragraph.

    But…. no.
