Steve Tuffill's curator insight, January 18, 2014 1:22 PM

This applies to any form of writing. Although this was written mainly for authors of fiction, it counts for descriptive prose that tells a vital story. People use story-telling in commercial content-writing for the Web. But the most successful story-telling comes when the readers can't put the material down because of their engagement!

KindredReaders's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:50 PM

I love this example:, from John Gardner's The Art of Fiction:

 

It was winter of 1853. A large man stepped out of a doorway.Henry J. Warburton had never much cared for snowstorms.Henry hated snowstorms.God how he hated these damn snowstorms.Snow. Under your collar, down inside your shoes, freezing, and plugging up your miserable soul.
