My word of the week is….
I think this is appropriate for many of us. The definition if you haven’t come across this word before (I am new to this) is the appearance of being true or real!
We all strive, sometimes depending on the genre, to bring the stories to life. To show realism be it in characters, settings, emotions and actions. It can be hard to keep it all real but there is where revisions can help.
So if you had Boris who did not like any cheese in Act One and no reference was made to change this but then ate a cheese platter in the final act it wouldn’t fit right.
There are so many examples that can be used but I am pretty sure we all know what to look out for. So when we are editing or beta reading and looking out for these trends, we are making sure the stories have verisimilitude.
I hope this gave you insight into another word. Thank you for reading!
