First Contest. :)

Today I want you to punch up your writing by scrubbing through it and deleting every boring, dull, passive word and replace it with a vibrant, active term.

Need an example? How’s this:

He ran.

Booooring. How’s this?

He ran fast.

Ugh. Even worse. Let’s keep working on it.

He shot out of the car like a bullet.

Eh. Better but not quite there.

What do you think?

Comment on my blog and show me how you would beef up the sentence. The writer who comes up with the most interesting sentence will win an e-book copy of my first novel. Enjoy and have fun.
