When was the last time a reader asked you about the diction you’re using in your current work in progress?
Yeah, me neither.
Most people ask about the characters, the plot, maybe the theme. Maybe. But diction doesn’t come up often in friendly conversations about books.
Considering how important it is, though, maybe it should.
And considering the types of diction you have to choose from (it’s not just a question of formal vs. informal), I’m glad you’re here to learn more about it.
