Translation for your convience

Learned a new word

and the importance of looking for them.

Filter words are words or phrases you tack onto the start of sentence that show the world as it is filtered through the main character’s eyes.

Here's a partial list:

  • to see
  • to hear
  • to think
  • to touch
  • to wonder
  • to realize
  • to watch
  • to look
  • to seem
  • to feel (or feel like)
  • can
  • to decide
  • to sound (or sound like)
This list and above definition come from the following article: Are These Filter Words Weakening your Fiction?

Here are a few more I found in another really great article: The Reason Editors Reject Manuscripts

thought, wondered, considered, hoped, realized

And you were thinking you finally knew enough to produce the perfect manuscript. At least I did.

Happy learning, writing, revising and submitting.
