A while ago I read that an author has their computer read their novel back to them.
I found the idea interesting and began doing the same thing with my short stories and the novel I finished in November.
What’s happened is nothing short of an epiphany.
Hearing what I’ve written has made a difference in how I approach editing and the next writing project.
I wish I’d had figure this out sooner.
I listen to it and hear it differently than I would read it.
I know I’m supposed to read it out loud, but my voice is my own. It won’t change anything how I see it. A different voice is required.
I’ll never be able to edit another way after this.
Have a good week and I’ll talk to you Wednesday.
