“Not needed at present. We produce our art in-house.”
Avoid too many metaphors, similes, adverbs and adjectives. Force the story forward through event, character and dialogue rather than over-elaborate descriptions. Imagine you are relating the story verbally to a friend. Capture the energy, speed and enthusiasm of that rather than trying to be too arty. No, no, NO poetry… ok?”
