Literature Note #67
Be specific, definite, and concrete in your writing. Prefer these qualities over the general, vague, and abstract. You do not need to provide every detail, as that is impossible; what is important, however, is that the significant details are given. Present these with accuracy and vigour, and so allow the reader to imagine themselves within your scene.
