Does Your Writing Go With The Flow?
http://www.naturalreaders.com/index.htm is free. A bit stilted, but still handy- I’m sure there are others) then we can catch those odd patterns, over-used, invisible words and phrases, and repeated sentences. We’ll hear where we’ve not varied the sentence length for a while, where something comes out either too short and choppy, or too long and convoluted. I know as a reader, if the speech patterns keep repeating, I will and have given up books simply because that’s ALL I begin to notice.
What about you? Do you read your work out loud? Have someone read it to you? Ever stop reading a book due to the “sound”?
Thanks for coming by!
