Something Philip Pullman Learned from the Grimm About Writing

Philip Pullman’s response to Rachel Martin asking, in this NPR interview, what he has taken away from the Grimm project as he works on The Book of Dust:

These stories move very quickly. There’s not an ounce of narrative fat in them. They go very, very swiftly from event to event.  Another thing, you see very few adverbs in them.  So I’m trying to cut down on my adverbs.
