More on Unshootables
I actually posted about this very topic at least once before, HERE. In that post I mentioned that there were certain times when it was okay to break the rules, as long as it doesn't become a rule, and it serves a good purpose.
In the last couple of days I've discovered that a few of the luminaries of the Scribosphere have weighed in on this very topic as well. So to further the discussion (though I think most of the opinions are generally the same, with simply better examples and the like), check out the following:
John August - "Writing what can't be shot"
Alligators in a Helicopter - "Not Overdescribing, and Trusting Your Reader/Audience"
The Inside Pitch - "The Forbidden Zone"
Let me also take this opportunity to point you over to Christopher Lockhart's new blog (hat tip to Warren): The Inside Pitch. It is brand spanking new, and is excellent so far. I guarantee this blog will be required reading for many of you in the months and years ahead. Lockhart is the Executive Story Editor at ICM, and a founder (I believe) of the awesome TwoAdverbs.com, which is also worth checking out.
Okay, back to work with me!
