5. Dropping Hints For Your Reader

     Okay, so now that we're all masters at dialogue, let's try and use some sneaky words to tell your reader something without actually saying it.

     For example, if you're writing a scene about a step-daughter that can't stand her stepmother, you don't want to just come out and write:

     My stepmother walked into the room and she smiled at me. I hated her so much.

     "Did you do the wash?" she asked, sitting down on the couch next to me.

     "No," I said.

 

     Try hinting at the hatred there without actually saying it. If you use more descriptive words or adjectives then your sentences will not only seem much more classy, they'll impress your readers and keep them begging for more. Let's try that scene again:

     My stepmother walked into the room, her chin held high and her eyes narrow. Her thin lips pulled back into a smile as she entered. Utter disgust immediately began forming in my stomach and I met her gaze with a cold stare.

     "Did you do the wash?" she asked, sitting near me on the couch. I frowned and slid to the other side of the sofa.

     "No," I spat.
