Writing Exercise: Good Writing Is ...

Good writing engages both reader and writer. It entertains you and, while you're not looking, informs you. It doesn't just make you think: it makes you want to think. Good writing pulls you into the story until you think of the characters as your friends, and makes you miss them when the book is over. Good writing is internally consistent. It lets you know what its assumptions are, and sticks to them. Good writing is fun.
