    Ruchie is angry at her mother. She comes home from her first date and is locked in a Cold War. The sentence read:

    Ruchie put her glass in the sink.

    I changed ONE word. Here we go:

    Ruchie plunked her glass into the sink.

    (Well, two words really, because I had to write “into”, but who’s counting, right? 😁)

    Sometimes, all it takes is tweaking a single word. Pondering that right now…

    BTW, this is NOT my official Masterpiece Magic tip. I’ll be making that tomorrow for you ladies, b’ezras Hashem! Don’t worry!! 🤣😍

    Wow! I really feel a tangible difference. It’s stronger and more descriptive!

    So true! With one alteration you went from telling to showing. Thanks for pointing this out.
