TLC, Tender Love and Care. When I was taking my first Journalism class my professor would have us analyze sentences that we had all written for our pieces and categorized them into two sections: Great Writing and Writing That Needs TLC. He never said bad writing, he didn’t think there was bad writing, just writing that needed some tender love and care.
So that’s what I’m doing in this section.
These are books I liked, but either their plots, writing, editing, or something else, needed some TLC.
