Description

Description can range from what things looks like to how they sound and what they smell like, or delve into how a character feels and experiences the world around her. It's also an area that can bog down a novel or not give enough detail to understand the scene. Here are some articles that help you find the best way to describe what's important in your novel.

    1. It depends how long it is. I do critique diagnostics on Saturdays, but only on submissions that are about a page long--roughly 250-300 words. If it's about that size, you can submit it there.

      Here's the link to the page with all the details: http://blog.janicehardy.com/2008/01/real-life-diagnostics.html
