I've been thinking recently about how anyone so rarely puts into practice what bloggers teach. For example, when I read a writing post I might skip through it, nod along with the facts, and comment how it was a great post, and then go about my day. But...that really didn't do anything, did it? I know, that sounds weird, but hear me out.

Every story has a point to it. There's always some sort of impending doom looming menacingly at the protagonist, which the entire story will lead up to. And yet often times we find ourselves...well, getting distracted from it. It's way too easy to wedge a party in there ("For some excitement," we tell ourselves) or throw in a dance-off battle scene ("For epic-ness,") or even an entire new epic character half-way through the book ("For comic-relief,"). While on the outside these things seem fun, they're actually damaging your story. Today we're going to be looking at 3 different distractions writers have, and how to avoid them! Let's get started!
