The Star Novel Writing Method For Writing Your Novel Or Screen Play: "Don't put in powerful or colorful events just to describe them as intense, beautiful, terrible, whatever. The context is not the story. The story may ride on the context but the context is not the story. The novelist Mitchner did tons of research for his novel settings, like Hawaii, but sometimes he included too much information about the place and his story lines were weak. Make your story stronger than your context."
