All of us, as writers, have our strengths and weaknesses, whether we’re writing fiction, creative non-fiction, news, academic reports, grocery lists or what have you.
Some of us are strong with plot, but thin on character development. Or vice-versa.
Others do too much “telling” and not enough “showing.”
Some struggle to create authentic-sounding dialogue.
And many of us fall into the traps of cliché and stereotype without even realizing it.
