Went to a creative writing workshop, and got "my wrist slapped" for cramming too many internal thoughts, or too much information expressed by dialogue into a story and slowing it down. The instructor suggested that I find all internals or dialogue possible that could be expressed in a gesture, and use expressions and physical movement to express them. Save dialogue and internals for abstract thoughts. I tried it and didConnie Gotsch www.conniegotsch.com Host Write On Four Corners KSJE FM, Farmington NM www.ksje.com Author two award winning novels Snap Me a Future and A Mouthful of Shell available www.dlsijpress.com it shorten my stuff up. That should have been a "duh", but for some reason it wasn't. Have a good day.
