How 2 Use Colons In Writing

What About Using Colons In Writing

In Description and Setting, Ron Rozelle gives us a few nuggets of writing advice. Check the review I did on his book in the Write Great Fiction series with Readers Digest. Personally, I don’t use colons much in my own writing, but Ron suggests that whenever you do use a colon, you’re settting up your read for something:

  • for a description
  • a clarification
  • an idea
  • a list

Ron believes it's one of the best ways for you to call attention to something important in your story. I’m going to give that a go and see if that improves my writing style.
