The read-aloud really does help with pointing out where I can afford to kill the internal stuff because it’s coming across in actions or external dialog. Or maybe it’s just the way I’m reading it aloud. Frell. You can tear your hair out over the uncertainty. Lucky for me, I’m bald.
My phone died part of the way through Larry Corriea’s discussion on Action and Pacing. The worst part was, it died while he was answering the question I called in with. Arg. I got most of my answer, I just hope I didn’t come across as rude or anything. Stupid cordless phones. I still have a corded phone. I’m going to hook it up and maybe go find an old speakerphone box as well. Sometimes the old ways are better.
Anyway, tonight is gaming night, so not much writing progress is expected. I may have a book review for Friday (Glen Cook’s The Tower of Fear is awesome, by the way) but I may not be done with the book by then.
