Question:

How can speed up the flow in my narrative?

Answer:

Narratives often benefit from the introduction of dialogue to break up long passages of prose. Instead of merely describing that events are happening, characters can talk to each other about their emotions and the action within a scene.

Answer:

Fanny Price is desperate to find a gold chain to hang her brother's amber cross pendant from. Fanny is tricked into accepting a gold chain from Maria. Little does she know that this necklace was actually a gift from Henry, who has feelings for Fanny. At the same time, Edmund has also given Fanny a gold chain. However, when Fanny attempts to put the cross on Henry's chain, she finds that it does not fit and must use Edmund's chain. The linking of the cross and the chain represents the union between Fanny, her brother, and her ultimately true lover.

Question:

How do I know if I used a semicolon properly?

Answer:

Semicolons are only used between two separate clauses. More simply, semicolons are used to link two different and complete sentences together. Semicolons create separation between two sentences that are closely related and benefit from being juxtaposed. This creates variety in your writing and helps to break up the monotony of choppy sentences.
