Great advice

on July 30, 2015

I saw this on someone’s blog and thought it was great advice – unfortunately I forgot to write who’s post it was from so if it’s yours – hope it’s okay that I’m reblogging it 🙂

“Remove everything that has no relevance to the story. If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it’s not going to be fired, it shouldn’t be hanging there.” Chekkov
