I read an awesome article/Letter From the Editor: “The Living Order of Education” by Martin Cothran in The Classical Teacher, Summer 2019 (Memoria Press’s publication). It rocked my world, so today’s post will be a super brief one on . . . dum dum dum . . . DESTRUCTION!

I’m taking this week a little easy, so here’s another linked article. Enjoy! I hope to post another review in another day or two.
Saw a cool article via Facebook last night discussing, “What are the stakes?” It basically posits that an audience will only read what matters to them. If the plot stakes are too low, they will either bypass your work altogether or may lose interest along the way. Basically, the story falls flat. But, as writers, we can consider our stakes from the very outset and help use them as a tool to retain focus and readability.
I’m trying to review more, which is nice because it means reading more! Still, I’m stumbling on something that keeps coming up. I know it must be a style thing, but I don’t actually see how paragraphs and paragraph lengths are style rather than organization.
