Avoiding Author Intrusion

Author intrusion jars readers, slows the pacing of your work, and puts a barrier between your reader and the story’s emotion. It often brings about contrived or impossible situations and breaks that magical connection between story-teller and reader.

In this book, we’ll take a close look at author intrusion—one of fiction’s most deadly diseases. We’ll talk about what it is, identify how it shows up in your work and, most importantly, help you understand how to avoid it (and what to do about it if you can’t.)
