It isnt mine,I got it from Elmore Leonard,and , if one does it well,
he said that the reader doesnt even notice much thats different in the narrative. Many of these writers have put together their own books about the craft of writing. Leonard, Asimov, Steinbeck (a short work), Stephen King etc etc. The really greqt ones dont slam it up your nose, they just give examples of how they get their prose going and sustained.
Stephen King ven wrote about all the twists an turns of a book that he just bumps into while hes trying to get to his pre writtn ending.
Once and a while I got compliments for my writing of my geologic reports. I made a story out of a lithium claim in Chile,. The client who was responsible for most of the money, said he liked it so much he took it with him when he went to the Loo and read it on the throne. Now I dont know bout you, but I consider that high praise.
