Writing Wednesday with Robyn McIntyre for March 11, 2015: The References in Your Writing. Follow #LitChat on Twitter, or login to our dedicated channel atwww.nurph.com/litchat.
A writer may try to make a clearer picture by referencing an event or a person, a book, or school of thought. But if the reader is not familiar with that reference, that picture could become as fuzzy as static on an AM wavelength. On Writing Wednesday for March 11th, 2015, we’ll talk about using references in your work. How do you make sure your reader gets them and when is it being lazy to use them?
Please follow #LitChat from 4pm to 5pm ET, 1pm to 2pm PT, 2pm to 3pm CT or follow the conversation on our dedicated Nurph channel: nurph.com/litchat
