Five Brief Lessons from Taos Toolbox

  1. Prairie dogs sing. Really!
  2. Look closely at sentences. There are emotions hidden in almost every one.
  3. End your scenes with a small hook–a bit of drama, a witty line of dialogue–to keep your reader coming back for more.
  4. You can break your reader’s nose and her heart at the same time.
  5. Sometimes running at a breakneck pace is the only thing you can do.
