Nugget #8: Omitting

Paper Coach : Teach Yourself to Write Fiction

"a writer...may omit things that he knows...the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them...a writer who omits things because he does not know them only makes hollow places in his writing."
- Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon, p. 192
