Hi. I'm having a few problems with my creative writing and was hoping for some assistance. Their minor difficulties; at least they should be, but I'm finding them surprisingly frustrating to fix, so I was hoping to employ some well placed tactical groveling. My issues arise primarily around structure and grammar. I'm writing a short story in the third person, which centers around one character. I feel like my use of his name is excessive, but I'm not sure how to effectively substitute his name with identifiers which don't inevitably lead me into the world of the grammatically awkward. Another issue I have is my hopeless addiction to adverbs. I know I shouldn't use them, I know they're not good for me, but avoiding their siren's call is proving difficult and frustrating for me. Last but not least when I look at my drafts for revision, I really don't think I have a functional grasp on 'show, don't tell'. The prose and dialogue just feels awkward and forced. Any help on any of these issues would be greatly appreciated.
